cx_Freeze Alternatives

    cx_Freeze is described as 'set of scripts and modules for freezing Python scripts into executables in much the same way that py2exe and py2app do. Unlike these two tools, cx_Freeze is cross platform and should work on any platform that Python itself works on. It requires Python 2' and is an app in the Development category. There are five alternatives to cx_Freeze for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iPhone. The best alternative is PyInstaller, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like cx_Freeze are py2exe (Free, Open Source), nuitka (Free, Open Source), MSIX Packaging SDK (Free, Open Source) and bbfreeze (Free, Open Source).
