Hi Martin,
It looks a really nice idea!
I will try it as soon I have time and also include it for my papers!
All the best,

> I have started a project on Github (https://github.com/martinResearch/PyIPOL) that aims at providing a python interface to each of the algorithms that are on IPOL with an example for each algorithm. 
> I think that having Python bindings for the IPOL algorithms can be interesting to people who want to  test easily and integrate quickly these codes in their applications written in python or in order to script tests easily . The goal is to put it on the official python packages index website (https://pypi.python.org/pypi) which could potentially increase the visibility of the IPOL algorithms. 
> I have for now interfaced about a dozen of papers and the goal is to get almost all of the IPOL papers interfaced with python. Most of the interfaces have been done by calling the original executable with temporary files. Some bindings have been written using Cython.
> Adding a paper takes between 15 min and an hour, depending on the complexity of the input/output formats for the executable. Writing the code to get nice drawings of the results in python might take a bit of time when there is not yet another paper that perform a similar task already interfaced on whose code can be reused (drawing point matches for images of different sizes for example, or optical flow vector fields).
> I invite you to install a test my bindings and to make suggestions for improvements and contribute by adding articles (I have tried to simplify as much as possible the steps and to document them in detail).
