Best way to get data from Python into ParaView

I have coded a geometry generator in Python and am doing some calculations.
Now I'd like to visualize the results in ParaView. The data I want to exchange is the geometry itself as a structured quad mesh and as an unstructured tri-mesh. Further the surfaces have some values associated (scalars and vectors).
In ParaView I want to do some contour plots, deformation animations etc.

What is the best way to get my data out of Python into ParaView?

Thank you very much!

Hi Bruno,

thank you for your reply!
I suspected VTK Files are the way to go but wanted to be sure before I am running the completely wrong direction.
Thanks for the links!
