Hi all,

I would like to launch Paraview from a bash command so as to execute a script and then exit automatically at the end of the script.

To launch Paraview and execute the script, I use:

Code:
paraview --script=script_name.py
But after the script execution, Paraview stays open...

Does anybody know how to make it close?

Thank you very much for help!

Best regards,

William

Greetings William,

Why not use pvpython or pvbatch?

Beyond this, you can try the instructions given here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9...python-program

In case someone is reading on and, like me,

1) doesn't have the python-qt4 libraries compatible with his paraview binaries installed, and
2) obtains the desired rendering only using paraview --script and not by using pvpython or pvbatch, for some mysterious reason,

a solution may also be to execute something like this within the python script:

Code:
import subprocess
subprocess.call("kill $(ps aux|grep -e 'paraview --script=./YOUR_SCRIPT_NAME.py'|grep -v grep|awk {'print $2'})", shell=True)

Sorry to respond even later but this is what came up when I was searching this and I found an even simpler way!

Just import sys and then run sys.exit(0). This closes paraview for me, and the 0 is an OK exit code.
