I am interested in contributing some changes to the reader for AMReX data. I am considering changes that might address issues regarding the file format such as the one mentioned here: https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/-/issues/21279. Is there someone who can make some suggestions or offer advice about the best way to get started addressing something like this? I’ve looked through the developing and contributing docs, and am referring to more specific information like which part of the code to start with, good examples, etc.
We definitely welcome your updates! You are likely looking for the AMReX readers in VTK here, especially the vtkAMReXParticleReader. If you make a merge request, feel free to tag me on it, and I’d be happy to review.
Thanks for your response. I have a few deadlines coming up, but I’m hoping to start on it soon. I will definitely tag you when it goes in.
I submitted a merge request to VTK: https://gitlab.kitware.com/vtk/vtk/-/merge_requests/9129 . Since the change was entirely contained in their repo, it seemed like the right thing to do. Please let me know if I should have put it somewhere else.
