Using Sikuli to learn openCV

Asked by Dale on 2017-05-16

I independently code 1) Java on Windows using the Eclipse IDE and 2) Android using Android Studio. I'm also a SikuliX Windows occasional user.

I'd like to "play around" with OpenCV with the intent of one-day coding an Android app that uses OpenCV to match video frames or camera images with images from a defined library of images (these images would be consumer product packages).

Would getting the source for Siluki building on my Windows machine be something that would be reasonably easy? Is there a place where the Windows dev machine build steps are documented? Or is this idea kind of not so smart because I'd spend too much time on things other than how OpenCV works?

Does not make sense, to look into SikuliX with your intention:
only some features of OpenCV around matchTemplate are used.
In Sikuli(X) version 1 the interface to OpenCV is written in C++, which does not help for Android.

My recommendation:
concentrate on examples and tutorials in the net about the possible use of OpenCV with Java on Android.

All the best

Thanks for the quick, well-reasoned reply. And thanks for keeping SikuliX vibrant.
