Based on my initial exploration, it looks like each trace object has associated “get” and “set” methods that allow for inspecting and updating of the JSON. Is this the preferred way of doing this? If so, is there a way that I can allow changes to propagate to the HTML plot immediately, as in the realtime JSON editor demo here: http://help.plot.ly/json-chart-schema/, or does this require a call to plotly.offline.plot() each time a change is made?
I also had a question about the Plotly REST API. Is this only for applications that want to interface with plots stored in the user accounts on Plotly’s servers, or can its use also be applied to offline plots?
Thanks for your help!
