Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF), as an approach for multi-parametric, quantitative imaging, imposes new paradigms for sequence design in terms of optimized signal encoding and dictionary matching. In this work, we present a novel comprehensive framework and tool chain for rapid and efficient MRF prototyping. Key concepts are modularization and abstraction of the MRF experiment related to spin-physics, spatial encoding, and scanner hardware.
