I am just working on Anki source code for learning and just trying to understand how it is build. I have cloned Anki from git and installed all dependencies. Made couple of changes to the UI. I ran Anki from terminal and it is running successfully without errors. Now, I just want to know hot to convert this source code to installable file like anki,exe (Windows) or .tar.gz(Linux) just like I am downloading Anki and installing it. I have already searched regarding this but could not find any discussions about this.
Thanks in advance

    Hi Venkata,

    You can do so with a packaging program like pyinstaller or py2app, but I'm afraid I can't provide any support for using/building the source code.
