Webinar Followup: Vscode-h5web: A VSCode extension to explore and visualize HDF5 files
The HDF Group hosted, Loïc Huder of ESRF for a webinar on Vscode-h5web: A VSCode extension to explore and visualize HDF5 files on August 31, 2022.
H5Web is a web viewer for HDF5 files. It can be used to browse HDF5 files and display datasets with performant WebGL-based visualisations. While such files can be requested from a separate server (e.g. HSDS) for modularity, it is now possible to load and explore a file fully in the browser by using a WebAssembly HDF5 library called h5wasm. In this talk, presenter Loïc Huder will show how the team leveraged h5wasm to design a VSCode extension that uses H5Web to explore and visualize HDF5 files. Once the H5Web extension is installed, exploring and visualising a local HDF5 file in VSCode can be done with a simple double-click.
