Hi Nermin…

Only partly, its posible to use a something called a Deamon which allows for running back ground proccess using python or C++…

and it is even posible to use “interpreter mode” to use python for adding UR script…

But all the interaction layer aka the UI stuff will have to be coded in Java.

So far as I see, no. URCaps are compiled to binary, which means they could be developed in any language, buuuuut the URCap API and resources are only available in Java.
As said in other comment, a URCap can only be done partially in Python/C++, because you can use those in background processes, but not in the UI and setup. I will also add that having a Python background process can be also quite difficult to compile, since you need to add all the dependencies/additional modules to the Java project folder.

I think it would be great if the API could be used entirely on Python/C++, URCaps would be much more approachable towards other users and there is already compilers in Python to binary.
