Run it on a server and don't let them see the source code.

Nope. If you're going to ship Python code for people to run on their
own systems - or, honestly, *any* code - you should assume that they
can read it themselves. The only way is to NOT ship the code, which
(in today's world) usually means publishing it as a web app.
