Application Packaging

I have a very simple GUI that I'd like to distribute to some users, however it requires that a module be present on the workstation where it's being run from. Is there a way I can package this app so that the module folder is installed upon initial app installation?

You can just copy the folder to the folder that the script runs in as a subfolder and load it using an explicit path. It is also possible to create a module project and use it to create an installer for the module.

All of this assumes a module that does not require specific custom installation.

Thanks, I'd definitely rather have this as a package that when the user installs it, that module folder automatically gets copied to the correct location locally. I'm a newbie here, so can you point me in the right direction on getting started with that?

You would have to customize the installer for that to happen.

Look at the Sapien blog articles on installing packaged scripts and modules.
