Calling another plugin with specifications in developing a plugin


I'm developing a plugin and I would like to call qiime taxa collapse and use the collapsed table as a temporary artifact. If it is not possible, I would be forced to adapt taxa methods.

I would be very grateful if anybody could help me to accomplish what I need.

Best regards,


Hi @the_dummy!

This is totally possible - what you're looking for is what we call a Pipeline in QIIME 2:


Ah, perfect, how did I miss that :grimacing:

Thank you very much!!
