    I use Python because it's a beautiful (both visually and in terms of function) and multi-purpose language. In Paperless, Python is the primary connecting tissue holding all of the parts together: it's the basis of the consumption engine (communicating with Tesseract OCR via pyOCR) and the user-interface (based on Django).

    I needed a tool that could convert a rasterised image into text. There are a few out there, but I don't think there's any that match Tesseract OCR for cross-language capability, community support and freedom (it's Free as in freedom and beer).

    The setup isn't super-obvious, but once you've got it figured out, all of that can be automated. On top of that, there's lots of programming language-specific libraries out there that'll help plug your stuff into it.
