To create a Python executable that works with the docx module, you can use PyInstaller, which is a popular Python library for creating standalone executables.
Here are the steps to create a Python executable with docx:
- Install PyInstaller: If you haven’t installed PyInstaller already, you can do so by running the following command in your command prompt or terminal:
pip install pyinstaller
- Write your Python code: Write the Python code that uses the docx module to create or modify Word documents. For example, you could write a script that creates a new Word document and adds some text to it:
from docx import Document doc = Document() doc.add_paragraph('Hello, World!') doc.save('hello.docx')
- Create the executable: Once you have written your Python code, you can use PyInstaller to create an executable. To do this, run the following command in your command prompt or terminal:
pyinstaller --onefile your_script.py
Replace “your_script.py” with the name of your Python script. This will create a standalone executable file in a “dist” folder in your project directory.
- Test the executable: You can test the executable by running it from the command prompt or terminal. For example, if you created a “hello.docx” file using the above script, you should see it in the same directory as the executable after running it.
That’s it! You have created a Python executable that works with the docx module using PyInstaller. You can distribute this executable to others who do not have Python or the docx module installed, and they should be able to run it on their machine.
