I have some some updates for the Colour Deconvolution plugin which I would like to apply to the Fiji version.
Some time ago, that plugin source was split into two separate files by a contributor to make some methods public and to generate a single file which holds the colour vector matrices which makes them easier to edit and maintain.
One drawback is that now I cannot compile that source in IJ1 anymore.
I will have to move from using just a text editor (yep!) and use Eclipse instead.
I tried to find a step by step instruction on how to do this but the instructions are somewhat circular and perhaps understandable for experienced programmers.
I have installed eclipse, maven, git, gitk and Fiji (but never used maven before). I am using linux if that makes any difference.
(I have cloned the IJ source code long time ago, but I currently cannot access that machine and do not recall exactly how I did it and now I am not sure if there is a specific place in Eclipse where I should place the repository.) So, sorry to ask these basic questions…
How do I clone just the Colour Deconvolution plugin and use the current working Fiji install for testing?
Do I need to clone the whole Fiji to work with Eclipse and update the plugin?
Can somebody please suggest how to set up Eclipse to do the above?
