Is it possible to import Python module (in my case jinja2 for generating HTML report) into Paraview 5.8 ?
Absolutely it is possible. Did you try ?
We have read it was not possible in 5.7. Just wondering if it would be possible before digging this in . I am not an Python expert so would need to figure out at which level I would install the library and referenced it
Thank you any way for the quick reaction
I’ve been using virtual-env inside pvpython since ParaView 5.4.
Just put your package to bin/Lib/site-packages like Python directory, take a reference at files/directory structure generated by paraview installer
Could you please explain us how do you manage to use virtualenv with the default paraview binaries? Thanks!
NVM: I found it https://blog.kitware.com/using-pvpython-and-virtualenv/
With Python 3 you need to do something like that and use virtualenv not venv.
if '--virtual-env' in sys.argv: virtualEnvPath = sys.argv[sys.argv.index('--virtual-env') + 1] virtualEnv = virtualEnvPath + '/bin/activate_this.py' exec(open(virtualEnv).read())
