Plotly is an open source library specializing in developing data analytics and visualization tools. Plotly supports a number of different languages and provides a number of tools, for analytics, statistical tools, and online graphing, for the following:

  • Python
  • R
  • Perl
  • Julia
  • Arduino
  • REST

The Plotly Python library (referred to as to differentiate between language-specific versions) was built on top of plotly.js; the advantage of this is that this gives great versatility to display web-based visualizations in Jupyter notebooks, incorporated into Python web applications using Dash, or saved to standalone HTML files.

To install the library, install onto your version of Python from command line using the following command:

                        pip install plotly==5.3.1
