OMERO is an open source client/server system written in Java for visualizing, managing, and annotating microscope images and metadata. The OMERO API allows clients to be written in Java, Python, C++ or MATLAB. The OMERO platform includes a Java client OMERO.insight, a Python-based web client OMERO.web, a Command Line Interface which uses Python, and a Java ImageJ plugin. OMERO also supports a scripting service which allows Python scripts to be run on the server and called from any of the other clients.
You are welcome to write your own client code or scripts, or extend the server to suit your needs, and there is a whole community and extensive documentation to support you.
The strength of OMERO lies in its interoperability. Some of the main extension points are highlighted below.
