I have long intended to provide an easier to use version of the D43 oscilloscope software  that doesn't require the user to jump through hoops to install it.

I finally got around to figuring out how to build a binary package of a Python program.  What's better, I found it is possible to do so even for operating systems I don't have access to.

I have put a set of binary distributions of the D43 software up on the D43 GitHub "Releases" page.

Just download the appropriate file and start it up - no installation necessary.

Download files:

I have tested the Linux and Windows versions.  I don't have any access to a macOS system at all, so it is still untested just like the program itself.

D43 on Windows:

It looks pretty much like it does on Linux - which is kind of the point of cross platform development.  It works just as well on Windows as it does on Linux.

If you have a way to test it on macOS, drop me a line here or in the comments of the blog and let me know how it turns out.

I'll be updating my other PyQt5 projects and making distributable binaries of them in the next few days.

Linux users need to make sure that their system uses GLIBC version 2.27 or higher.
I've tested the Windows version on Windows 10.  It ought to work on other versions, but it is untested.
