I use PythonTeX for a number of my articles, yet a number of journals request a single
.tex file which they can compile with what I assume is just texlive and a bunch of packages.
The problem being that they don't have PythonTeX. The way I understand it, however, PythonTeX generates a bunch of PGF and PNG figures, which are then static unless it is re-run. I also see that PythonTeX does not re-run any Python code if I do just recompile the document without editing any of the code.
Is there any way to use the trace files generated by pdflatex and PythonTeX upon compilation to create a document which will compile without PythonTeX and simply based on the static figures I can distribute to them?
I have tried
arlatex based on this question but it fails for the PythonTeX elements (be they figures or text).
