Make a C++ application compatible with an existing Visualization Web Service infrastructure


#1

This hackathon includes:

  • A short presentation of the VWS architecture
  • Presentation and definition of important ZeroEQ events
  • Definition of custom ZeroEQ events specific to candidate application
  • Hands-on implementation
  • Configuration of the VWS to accept new candidate application

This requires the participants to provide a compilable version of their application (ideally in Github) in an Linux environment. Alternatively, a simple OpenGL application provided by the organizer will be used.

This hackathon makes use of the RESTBridge library.


#2

That sounds pretty cool.

Are there currently any HBP produced apps which are integrated with the VWS?


#3

Yes, Livre (Volume rendering), RTNeuron (Rasterization), and my brand new baby BRayns (Interactive Raytracing) are already integrated with the very basic features of setting the camera position and getting a JPEG back.
