TVTK: Traited VTK
TVTK_ provides a Traits enabled version of VTK_. TVTK objects wrap around VTK
objects but additionally support Traits_, support numpy arrays transparently
and provide a convenient Pythonic API. TVTK is implemented mostly in pure
Python (except for a small extension module). TVTK is part of the Enthought
Tool Suite (ETS) and is distributed under a liberal BSD style license. License
information is available in the LICENSE.txt file in this same directory.
