Python for weka, Image Processing
I am trying to use Java within Python. But it seems that it is still not fully ‘done’ for integrate the power of Python and Java. Jython is one option, but it is not including the numpy and scipy. Here is the link for some examples for using weka from Jython.
Also, sadly, there are not too many packages for image processing (Image, Mahotas, OpenCV-python wrapper). In terms of UI, wxpython is good choice, but to make things with animation effect, you have to switch to python game, etc. And many things require dependent packages, which is not convenient. Especially, to create a cover flow effect is not so simple. Below are some cover flow demo that I found interesing:
Anyway, I still love python very much, which is so clear and much easier to express your idea.
