My desktop application uses HDF5 1.10.7 on Mac OS and Windows.
I succeeded in getting dynamically loaded filters (a.k.a., plugins) to work on Windows using hdf5plugin-1.10.7-win10_64-vs15.zip from https://support.hdfgroup.org/ftp/HDF5/releases/hdf5-1.10/hdf5-1.10.7/plugins/
I am not able to get them to work on Mac OS. I tried hdf5plugin-1.10.7-osx1013_64-clang.tar.gz and hdf5plugin-1.10.7-osx1013_64-intel.tar.gz. Both provided “.so” files (e.g., libh5blosc.so) but I believe on Macintosh I need .dylib files. I have not been able to find .dylib files.
I have installed the .so files in the right place ("/usr/local/hdf5/lib/plugin") but they are not found by the HDF5 library.
Even with hdf5plugin-1.10.7-osx1013_64-clang.tar, the README file talks about Linux and Windows but nothing about Mac. So I’m starting to think that dynamically loaded filters are not supported on Mac.
Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.
