We are in the process of evaluating spatialdata for a non-omics use case, where workflows are very composition heavy - ie. transforms are applied in succession on objects that already have transforms applied.
Using the current API this is a bit cumbersome, though definitely possible as shown e.g. in this example Use landmark annotations to align multiple -omics layers — spatialdata (scverse.org).
Is there a rough timeline when this functionality might be improved, as hinted in this note from the attached example:
Note: this handling of transformation will become more ergonomics in the next code release, removing the need to manually append the transformation as we are doing below. We will update this notebook with the new approach.
