The origin of VTK is with the textbook "The Visualization Toolkit, an Object-Oriented Approach to 3D Graphics" originally published by Prentice Hall and now published by Kitware, Inc. (Third Edition ISBN 1-930934-07-6). VTK has grown (since its initial release in 1994) to a world-wide user base in the commercial, academic, and research communities.
vtk.js aims to be a subset of VTK and provide 3D rendering using WebGL for both geometry and volume rendering.
If you have found a bug:
If you have a patch, please read the CONTRIBUTING.md document.
Otherwise, please join the one of the VTK Mailing Lists and ask about the expected and observed behaviors to determine if it is really a bug.
Finally, if the issue is not resolved by the above steps, open an entry in the VTK Issue Tracker.
In general VTK tries to be as portable as possible; the specific configurations below are known to work and tested.
vtk.js supports the following development environments:
- Node 8+
- NPM 5+
and we use babel-preset-env with the last 2 versions to browsers target. But when built from source this could be adjusted to support any browser as long they provide WebGL.
See the documentation for a getting started guide, advanced documentation, and API descriptions.
