For keeping data at our institute organized, I need to write a simple Fiji plugin that creates (as good as possible) below YAML text file from an image file.
I am, of course, thinking about using BioFormats to extract the information.
I actually do not have a concrete question, but I thought it is good to post this here in case this overlaps with other activities. And, of course, I am very happy to hear any suggestions regarding this!
