Managing plugins

JIPipe has its own plugin (extension) system that is independent of the one provided by ImageJ/SciJava. You can find a list of plugins in Plugins > Manage plugins.

Plugin manager UI

JIPipe by default supports two types of extensions:

  1. Java extensions are similar to ImageJ plugins (*.jar) and are the most powerful plugin type. Just like ImageJ plugins, they are located in the plugins directory.
  2. JSON plugins are similar to ImageJ macros or scripts, as they are pure text files. Such extensions can be created without programming via the JSON Extension Builder

Some plugins require that dependencies are installed and will notify you if something is wrong. To check if all plugins are in working condition, check if the top right button displays All plugins valid. Otherwise click the button to show what went wrong and how to solve the issue.
