Plotly.js已经开源了,可以在线下生成独立的html文件,因此现在通过python使用plotly完全免费了。本文介绍基于python使用plotly的方法。

Plotly for Python is now entirely open source, free, and self-hosted

安装方法

pip install plotly

需要升级的话,可以输入:

pip install plotly –upgrade

使用方法

最简单的使用方法是参照plotly网站给出的案例,见这里(https://plot.ly/python/

Initialization for Online Plotting

如果不上传到plotly网站,此处可以忽略。

import plotly
plotly.tools.set_credentials_file(username='your-name', api_key='your-pass-word')

Initialization for Offline Plotting

  • Use plotly.offline.plot() to create and standalone HTML that is saved locally and opened inside your web browser.
  • Use plotly.offline.iplot() when working offline in a Jupyter Notebook to display the plot in the notebook.

数据准备

trace0 = Scatter(
    x=[1, 2, 3, 4],
    y=[10, 15, 13, 17]
)
trace1 = Scatter(
    x=[1, 2, 3, 4],
    y=[16, 5, 11, 9]
)
data = Data([trace0, trace1])

plotly.offline.plot

plotly.offline.plot(data, filename = '/Users/chengjun/GitHub/cjc2016/vis/basic-line.html')
