    I don't believe there's a Python library for FOVE. I could make a crude version, but I would need someone to collaborate with to do it right. Although I don't know if I'll have time to.

    Hi Philip,

     

    FOVE is awesome for research, because of the eye tracking part, but there are far less data analysts / researchers that know C++ than Python... Also there are some pretty tools for experimenting/visualization/interaction that are made in python or that accept a python connection.

    Maybe someone from staff can help us in the process?

    My C++ knowledge is near "zero", but I will gladly help with python part, testing or general ideas.

     

    Best regards,

    Miroslav

    Hi guys,

    It seems that using "subprocess" is quite okay to use the data stream from the C++ sample syntax...

    But it's rather a poor workaround...

     

    Still trying to understand how to wrap functions into a python library...

    Hi guys,

    I don't normally like to announce things in advance, but I thought a heads up here might be helpful. We're working on a python library for FOVE and are nearly done with it. Barring any major issues, it should be out, at least in beta form, with our next release. I'll report to this thread once it's out.

    Thanks, Jeff,

    These are great news!

     

    I'll wait, then, the new release. Beta is already much better than no library.

    Wonderful news! 

    This will really help our lab too.

    Thank you.
