  • imageio_download_bin: Download binary dependencies for imageio plugins to the users application data directory. This script accepts the parameter --package-dir which will download the binaries to the directory where imageio is installed. This option is useful when freezing an application with imageio. It is supported out-of-the-box by PyInstaller version>=3.2.2.

  • imageio_remove_bin: Remove binary dependencies of imageio plugins from all directories managed by imageio. This script is useful when there is a corrupt binary or when the user prefers the system binary over the binary provided by imageio.
