Re: [Gimp-developer] Python vs Scheme

Hi Simon,
the better way - in my opinion - should be the best technical solution
(let's call it Scheme) BUT with the best user experience (let's call it
'script builder'?).
A normal user cannot start and study Scheme (or Python) in order to have a
script... should need a script builder/recorder.

Hi Massimo.

Massimo Fidanza via gimp-developer-list (gimp-developer-list gnome org)
in the source archive there are 51 .scm scripts and 11 .py Scheme scripts
has a complex syntax and I do not know how much it is used today. What
the advantages of Scheme compared to Python? Would it make sense to
plugins that still use Scheme in Python and remove the Scheme language?

The main advantage of scheme is, that we can easily ship the interpreter
within gimp. With python we'll always depend on an external python

Yeah, scheme sometimes can be a bit optuse, but in my eyes having an
interpreter within the gimp distribution is a strong point to consider.
