We have already developed a ParaView Desktop plugin in order to support an additional file format. Now, we aim to develop a web-based visualization application in order to support this format in a web browser (we go for client-side rendering).
From my understanding, VTK.js is the library you will support going forward for web-based visualization. According to a brief description on GitHub, “ParaView Glance already can serve as a foundation for building custom web-based visualization applications involving ITK.js and VTK.js”. However, it is unclear for us how easy it is to customize Glance in order to support our file format (a nice customization would include both the capability to open such files and new pieces of UI dedicated to the exploration of the files content). In particular, from my understanding, Glance does not seem to be “plugin-based”.
Is there a convenient way to transpose our existing plugin from ParaView Desktop to Glance? Does VTK.js/Glance is the most appropriate choice in this case? We also had a look at ParaViewWeb applications.
