According to @jairideout,
All of the commands available under
qiime dev, and
qiime infoare built-in commands provided by the CLI, and aren’t QIIME 2 plugins
Qiime tools import command, is import a plugin?
All the qiime 2 plugins are conveniently listed on the available plugins page. This is so perfect!
In contrast, I can’t find a page listing these ‘built-ins’. The command
qiime info is only mentioned twice, and I can’t find a single mention of
qiime dev in the official docs.
The crucially important
qiime tools import has a great tutorial, but no comprehensive docs. This has confused some users:
What can we do to remove this conceptual ambiguity? Is there something that makes ‘built-ins’ special, or could these just as easily be plugins?
I’ve never seen a CLI be created before, so it’s cool to see the action up close. Thanks for letting me into the thought process.
Happy New Year!
