Developing sophisticated software tools is essential to support studies of solar activity evolution, climate change understanding and space weather prediction . With new space missions such as SDO, solar images are being produced in unprec e dented volume s . To capitalize on that huge data availability , the scientific community needs a new generation of software tools , which enable automatic and efficient data process ing and manipulation. In this work, we argue that a modular system design is required to achieve a stable, extendable and comprehensive solar feature tracking tool.
