Issue with init of pyimagej with specific plugin

I can’t seem to start pyimagej with a specific plugin, even using examples provided in the documentation:

Although this works:

import imagej
ij = imagej.init(['net.imagej:imagej', 'net.imagej:imagej-legacy'])

When I try to do this with BigStitcher:

>>> import imagej
>>> ij = imagej.init(['net.imagej.imagej:2.1.0', 'net.preibisch:BigStitcher:0.4.1'])

I get:

Error in `~/anaconda3/envs/mycondaenv/bin/mvn -B -f ~/.jgo/net.imglib2/imglib2-imglyb/1.0.0+net.imagej.imagej-2.1.0-RELEASE+net.preibisch-BigStitcher-0.4.1/pom.xml dependency:resolve': 1

Any tips? I’ve tried with other plugins but they don’t work either.

Hey @kephale

I had a similar issue earlier. Can you execute the command you mentioned and post its error message?

@kephale pulling in other versions of ImageJ (or, it looks like, additional plugins) is currently broken. Technical explanation here.


@hinerm Great, thanks! I see your workaround (and caveats) which I will test out when I get a chance.


@kephale shoot, actually, there is a typo here. net.imagej.imagej should be net.imagej:imagej because it’s G:A:V. That’s why the pom isn’t resolving.

You also need to add imagej-legacy explicitly, unfortunately. This actually initializes successfully for me:

>>> import imagej
>>> ij = imagej.init(['net.imagej:imagej:2.1.0', 'net.preibisch:BigStitcher:0.4.1', 'net.imagej:imagej-legacy:0.37.4'])
