This question might have been discussed in bits and pieces already, but I couldn't find a coherent conversation about what are the best practices and strategies for deploying a moderately complex Mathematica code that
- uses other user-defined functions (sometimes from other notebooks)
- uses packages (located locally)
- contains dynamic-based user interface (nothing fancy -- few sliders, output windows, buttons -- really a small input-output panel, but with lots of calculations behind the scene)
Under deploying I understand here that it can be run on a completely (or almost) fresh machine (read internet cafe), preferably also without a need to install a third party software? Or anything as close to this as possible.
I don't really care if the code is visible/protected or not, but I want the dynamic interface to be the main part a user sees when they open it.
CDF player is not a good option, simply because it is not supported on Chrome, so it is not really a useful method.
I understand it is general enough, and I can make up some minimal code, but I am not sure it would be useful before we understand the general idea how to pre-process such working environment and package it for the deployment.
I suspect there is no easy answer, so it would be great to learn what is the general approach to this.
