Hi Patrick,

Is there a reason you don't want to write a C++ plugin to achieve this?
Readers are fairly straightforward to implement with ParaView and there are
plenty of examples. Plus, I don't know if it is possible to achieve what you
want with Python API alone, but hopefully someone will correct me if I'm

Yes, especially if you want to design a plugin where filename is an entry
choosen by a user.
I am looking for a real example in the configuration of a
ServerManagerConfiguration file for a python reader.
