Fides reader for ADIOS2 data

ParaView has a new reader for reading ADIOS2 data. Fides is a library that uses a JSON data model to map ADIOS2 data arrays to VTK-m datasets. The goal is to enable interoperable visualization services that can be readily integrated into scientific workflows without the need to write specialized adaptors. The JSON data model describes the details of the mesh and fields in the data to be read. Simulations already using ADIOS2 do not need to make any changes to the way their data is written/streamed by ADIOS.

The Fides user guide contains an example of using the ParaView reader.

So far we’ve been focused on supporting fusion energy codes, but we are currently working with the ADIOS2 team to make sure Fides works for any application using ADIOS2.
