ParaView Glance is an open-source web application developed at Kitware for visualizing volumetric images, molecular structures, geometric objects, and point clouds. It is part of the ParaView platform and can serve as a foundation for building custom web-based visualization applications involving ITK.js and VTK.js.
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.
Because of ParaView Glance's ease of distribution, the stable and nightly releases of the code on github can be run by visiting the appropriate web page:
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-glance.git $ cd paraview-glance/ $ npm install $ npm run build $ npm run dev
This will run a development build and you can visit the application at
To generate a production build, use the following commands:
$ npm run build:release
This will output the final bundle and assets to
dist/. You can then recursively copy all of those files into the web location of your choice. As there is no server-side code involved, all you need is some web hosting!
If you make changes to any of the ITK filtering code under
itk/, you should run the following command from the root folder. For more information, check out itk.js.
$ npx itk-js build itk/
