Hi all, just today I merged a patch into VTK-master to improve the vtk-python method descriptors and docstrings. This should help autocompletion and hinting for ipython and jupyter. Anyone who wants to try it out, please do so, because VTK 9.1 is coming soon and I won’t have time to do additional testing myself.
if you have an IDE that uses .pyi files, there is a script that you can run to generate them. Note that this script will only work with the current master branch, it will not work with yesterday’s master or with VTK 9.0.3.
@amaclean since you’re a PyCharm user, is there a chance that you can try this script to see if it makes any difference to the user experience? When run with no arguments, the script will simply deposit the .pyi files next to the .pyd files.
