Is it possible to create a standalone plugin that uses the pyrevit API?


I apologize in in advance as I feel like this question has already been asked, but I was unable to find the answer.

I want to create a standalone application that uses some of the pyRevit APIs. I have already completed the base application in Python and use RevitPythonShell to export the it as a standalone app by exporting it as a dll.

I was wondering if something similar can be completed with pyRevit? I am wondering if it is possible to expert a standalone plugin that uses pyRevit APIs but does not require pyRevit itself.
