Python and cell profiler

Just starting to learn the cell profiler, there are many things that don’t quite understand.
How to contact the cell profiler and the machine language, I saw a lot of using python or other Java language to write commands to run the cell profiler, what is the connection between the cell profiler and other software, for example, how to contact the cell profiler in python language. I want to open the image in python language or run the pipeline in the cell profiler. What should I do? Is it also something similar to plugins to run these programming software?
