napari is a fast, interactive, multi-dimensional image
viewer for Python. It’s designed for browsing, annotating, and analyzing large
multi-dimensional images. It’s built on top of
Qt (for the GUI),
performant GPU-based rendering), and the scientific Python stack (
scipy). It includes critical viewer features out-of-the-box, such as support
for large multi-dimensional data, and layering and annotation. By integrating
closely with the Python ecosystem, napari can be easily coupled to leading
machine learning and image analysis tools (e.g.
PyTorch), enabling more user-friendly automated analysis.
A plugin called napari-imagej is currently being developed to enable use of ImageJ2 commands from the napari interface. Like other ImageJ2 Python integrations (e.g. CellProfiler), the napari-imagej plugin is built on PyImageJ.
