Using python bindings in windows

Asked by ben barker on 2017-11-09

Hi,
In Ubuntu I am able to use the python bindings to hugin after installing "hugin-tools"

On W7, having installed the hugin binary, there seems to be no python support. Am I missing something, or is it necessary to compile from source in windows in order to use the python hsi module?

Yes, to use the Python binding they had to be activated at compile time.

For the official Windows binaries I decided against the Python binding. The causes are
* I'm not aware of many usable scripts in hsi.
* It would require a pre-existing Python installation, even if not using the Python binding. This would add another hurdle for the casual user.
* It would be bounded to a specific Python version. You would need a special version for each Python version. The effort to build and maintain the different versions is too much for the benefit of the current number of supplied scripts.

Can you help with this problem?
