That is in my opinion the way to go ... "get it up and running", keeping it simple to use, demonstrating that is worth to invest more work.oliveroxtoby wrote:The aim of this wokbench is to assist OpenFOAM beginners to get up and running rather than to provide advanced functionality (such as fluid-structure interaction).

Gnuplot, Paraview and OpenFOAM is included in the blueCFD binary of OpenFOAM (please see the readme). We did not want to include/package it because it is really large (+700 MB). We thought it might be best if the user download it directly and install it?!sgrogan wrote:+1 and the name change would facilitate this.saso wrote:PS: yes I think it is probably preferred to have it as an extra WB, but it should be added to the Addon manager
Some additional work would be needed on windows though. The windows build linked above handles the dependencies
I see some stuff in bin/Scripts and bin/Libe/site-packages.
Are the Gnuplot, Paraview, OpenFoam executables required to be on the users system.
I will answer some of these questions myself, but I look at the packaging before testing the functionality.
Great job and thanks for this
