Development Installs

New in version 3.8, we are now providing Development packages of ParaView. The primary purpose of these packages is to provide the necessary libraries and headers for one to build and deploy plugins that are binary compatible with the release ParaView binaries available on the download page.

Note

  • The Development install includes no debugging symbols and is built Release mode with the same compiler flags as the ParaView binaries.
  • The Development install DOES NOT include third party libraries and headers such as Qt.

Usage

To build your plugins using the Development install, one simply needs to set their ParaView_DIR to the development when configuring with CMake. The ParaView_DIR should be set to the location of the ParaViewConfig.cmake file. It can be found in the following locations:

  • On Windows ParaViewConfig.cmake is in the root of the install tree. For exampe C:\Program Files\ParaView-Development 3.8.0\ParaViewConfig.cmake
  • On Mac and Linux the ParaViewConfig.cmake file is located in lib\paraview-3.8.

Example
