What is the jar equivalent in Python?

Hi,
I want our customers to install the app.
What is the jar equivalent in Python? Do you use zip?
Can you sign the zip files with a certificate like jar files?

Thanks
Jamie

Hi Honor

1. I want to install the python package outside of site-packages.
2. sign the file so it is not tampered with.
3. handle install, uninstall, upgrades.

Does python have an archive file that can handle this like jars in Java?

Thanks
Jamie

hm.  I don't know.

If your target is for a Windows system, I would consider looking at using the py2exe module.

Yah, i think packaging as an executable will work.
cx_Freeze for cross platform too
