ImageJ2 documentation - transition macro -> advanced

Hey ImageJ gurus,

there are some discussions ongoing in parallel about our ImageJ2/Fiji documentation. I’m just searching for a good written online tutorial on how to switch from ImageJ macro to an advanced mode. Assume, I come from a non-computer-science field. Maybe I don’t know anything about objects, classes, java, python, jython, groovy, git, maven. But I’m an advanced macro coder for years. Do we have documentation for this audience?

I’m in particular wondering how to translate my favorite workflow: CCA on blobs.gif

This is how it looks in macro:

// load image
run("Blobs (25K)");
// correct LUT
run("Invert LUT");

// preprocessing: filtering
run("Gaussian Blur...", "sigma=2");

// thresholding
setAutoThreshold("Default dark");
setOption("BlackBackground", true);
run("Convert to Mask");

// configure measurements
run("Set Measurements...", "area redirect=None decimal=3");
// connected components analysis
run("Analyze Particles...", "  show=[Count Masks] display");

// result visualisation
run("glasbey on dark");

I know that this workflow can be quite complicated in ImageJ2, but it contains basically everthing you need to understand to switch to ImageJ2: Imgs, Ops, Regions, Labels, Tables. Is there a written online tutorial out there how to do such a translation? Either for the script editor (Jython/Groovy) or using IDEs (Java).

Any link is welcome!

Thanks,
Robert
