I have a multiple file directory format inheriting from qiime2.plugin.model.DirectoryFormat.
The framework is invoking the _validate_ method twice when I output to this format. I am wondering if this is by design or if I have somehow triggered this by something that I have done?
My _validate_ method is a little bit slow so I am a bit concerned by the multiple invocations !
Could I please get some insight into what might be going on here?
It's hard to say exactly what's happening with your validation method without seeing the construction of your directory format. Can you provide a link to your Github where this is located, or share code blocks that contain your validation method and format construction? You're welcome to send me a private message as well if you don't want to share these publicly yet!
I just followed up with you on our other thread. I'm going to unqueue this post so that we can keep our conversations on a single post (just to help me keep things organized on my end) - thanks again for your patience!
