About this page
This page contains materials for a VTK-m tutorial. A mini version of the tutorial will be offered at the VTK-m Code Sprint in Albuquerque on July 30th. The full version (3.5 hours) will be offered at VIS19 in Vancouver, Canada on Sunday October 20th.
Download and build VTK-m
- Download V1.4.0 here.
- (note the build page assumes you will be accessing the master via a git clone, but we encourage you to use the released version for the tutorial)
- Do not enable the TBB, OpenMP or CUDA support, at least at first.
- (we stand behind our support for these backends, but it is good to start simple)
In all, your process on Unix/Mac should be something like:
# wget https://gitlab.kitware.com/vtk/vtk-m/-/archive/v1.4.0/vtk-m-v1.4.0.tar.gz # tar xvfz vtk-m-v1.4.0.tar.gz # mkdir vtkm-build # out of source build # cd vtkm-build # cmake ../vtk-m-v1.4.0 # cmake --build . -j 4
The main instructions to download and build are here. That said, we recommend following the instructions above.

Build example code
Your process on Unix/Mac should be something like:
# (downloads from above) # export P=/path/where/you/want/to/run/tutorial/examples # export D=/path/to/where/your/browser/downloads/files # cp $D/kitchen.vtk $D/VTKm_tutorial_examples.tar $P # cd $P # tar xvf VTKm_tutorial_examples.tar # places 9 files in $PWD # cmake . -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="<path_to_vtkm-build>/vtkm/" # cmake --build . # ./tut_io # run 1st example # ls out_io.vtk # confirms 1st example successfully completed
