Open the Nexus compliant HDF5 file written by the Nexus writer with silx

From Bliss Shell

Silx can be launched from inside bliss using:

BLISS [1]: silx_view()

If at least one scan was performed in the current session, the command will open as a default the last scan (SCANS[-1]).

As an option, you can specify which scan to open, passing it as an argument:

BLISS [7]: silx_view(SCANS[-3])

From System Shell

Be sure to activate the proper conda environment and type:

silx view /data/visitor/hg123/id21/sample/sample_0001/sample_0001.h5


Do not use a silx version older than 0.12.0.
