Note: in the code where ever you are using a file directly , use the below function to call that file.

import os

def resource_path(relative_path):
base_path = sys._MEIPASS
except Exception:
base_path = os.path.abspath(".")

return os.path.join(base_path, relative_path)
# resultObj = parseXML(resource_path(xmlName))
# instead of #resultObj = parseXML(xmlName)

pyinstaller — onefile hello.py

Or to add files in the same .exe

pyinstaller — onefile — add-data “*.xml;.” hello.py

transform: scale(0.98)


Note: The buttons size will shrunk a little and gives the feel of a button click.

  • I created a virtual environment in windows using below commands.

=>python3 -m venv myVirtualEnv

  • Called the pip warrior to to install my dependencies
  • Then created a requirements.txt as below:

=> pip freeze > requirements. txt

I have been using GCP from past year and worked on cloud functions extensively ( mostly on python ).

In a project came a requirement to use aws lambda function to be used. I thought the task to run a program with some external dependencies ( the one which we install using pip i.e pip install requests) would be easy but guess what, no it wasn’t that straight froward.

How it would be done with GCP
