Pre-alpha Python wrapper for C++ Camera SDK

Ever wished you could use the Camera SDK from a Python application? Well, I did, so I've started development on a Python wrapper. You can download it from my lab's Github repository here: ... n/pycamera

The wrapper uses a language called Cython from which C++ is generated and compiled into a Python module. There is a very barebones Readme in the repository to get you started, but this is definitely not ready to just be downloaded and used straight away.

I would really love it if there are other folks here who have some C++/Python knowledge who'd be interested in contributing - my C++ skills are pretty weak, but I have a decent command of Python. I'm more than happy to answer questions when I have time, and I welcome the submission of pull requests to fix bugs or add functionality. This thing should continue to evolve as I wrap more and more of the functionality exposed by the SDK.

Feel free to email me with questions or send me a private message if you want more information or want to be involved with development of the wrapper.
