This list tracks compatibility status of third-party packages with PyInstaller.

Most packages will work out of the box with PyInstaller, even if they are not listed here. This is especially true for pure Python packages and for packages not requiring additional files.

As for the packages in the Python standard library we only list the exceptions that don't work correctly; thus, if not listed, it works correctly.

This list is largely incomplete. You are encouraged to try anyway (and then report your results on the mailing list so that we can update this list!). If you find a mistake or want to do some additions, please write to the mailing list.
