I am currently modifying a web application that loads a volume from a server(say a .vti file) and renders it. To make it more usable on slow internet networks, I created a girder plugin that loads the volume data into an array and split this data array into blocks along one direction. The client application can then request the blocks one by one with corresponding requests, dynamically recompose the volume and render it as data arrays are received.
Now it is starting to work but I am wondering if I am not reinventing the wheel. Is there already a simple way to send data by block/chunk with girder ?
I hope I have been clear enough with my goals.
