Community discussion takes place on the ParaView Discourse.
Additional documentation is being created and will be released as it is created on our documentation pages.
As a server based web application, ParaView Lite can be run by starting the server process using the ParaView binaries and connecting to it with any browser at the appropriate URL.
Building for development
If you wish to view, enhance, or adapt this application in any way, you can access and run the freely available source code from any platform using the following commands:
$ git clone https://github.com/Kitware/paraview-lite.git $ cd paraview-lite/ $ npm install $ npm run serve
This will build a development version inside the
./dist directory. You will have to point the ParaView process to use that directory as web content. (i.e.:
$ pvpython ./server/pvw-lite.py --content ./dist --data ~ --port 1234)
open http://localhost:8080/?sessionURL=ws://localhost:1234/ws assuming the serve command started using port 8080.
To generate a production build, use the following commands:
$ npm run build
This will output the final bundle and assets to
