Trouble compiling jython script into a plugin



I’ve written a script in ImageJ’s script editor, and I have it saved as
I’ve also used the jython compiler to create the myfile$py.class

I’ve tried installing both files in Fiji through Plugins>Install and Plugins > Install Plugins

Each time, Fiji says the plugin is successfully installed and to restart it. I can see the plugin in the correct fiji-win64/ file location (a .py and .class file), but can’t seem to find the them in the Fiji Plugins menu.

I’m pretty sure I’m missing a step somewhere… Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Running Windows 10, 64 bit
Java 1.8.0_66 (64 bit)
ImageJ 1.51w
Fiji distribution


Well. I feel foolish. This was an issue of improper naming.

Saving the file as and then File>Install Plugins works perfect.
ImageJ requires an underscore + the .py extension


Yes it needs underscore you can even install it just copying your .py file in the Fiji plugins directory and restart Fiji and you will see it under plugins menu
