Welcome to pyvisfile’s documentation!

Pyvisfile allows you to write a variety of visualization file formats, including

pyvisfile supports many mesh geometries, such such as unstructured and rectangular structured meshes, particle meshes, as well as scalar and vector variables on them. In addition, pyvisfile allows the semi-automatic writing of parallelization-segmented visualization files in both Silo and VTK formats. For Silo files, pyvisfile also supports the writing of expressions as visualization variables.

pyvisfile can write VTK files without any extra software installed.

PyVisfile allows you to write Silo and VTK (XML-style) visualization files from the Python programming language, more specifically from data contained in numpy arrays.
