Getting Started

To begin using the PVGeo python package, create a new virtual environment and install PVGeo through pip.

$ conda create -n PVGeoEnv python=2.7

# Install VTK through conda as this is OS-independent
$ conda install -n PVGeoEnv vtk

$ source activate PVGeoEnv
(PVGeoEnv) $ pip install PVGeo

# Test the install on non-Windows OS
(PVGeoEnv) $ python -m PVGeo test

Now PVGeo is ready for use in your standard python environment. To use the PVGeo library as plugins in ParaView, please see the detailed explanation here.
