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!
plotly.js, and thus everything occurs in the browser. What this also means is that you aren’t utilizing the REST API, and thus this can be done offline (as long as you have a local version of plotly.js). To mimic this behaviour, you may try to utilize
shiny in R (plot.ly/r/shiny-gallery) and
ipywidgets in Python (https://plot.ly/python/#chart-events).
Hi dmcneela,I’m new to plotly, I have the same needs like you. Do you find some methods to resolve this problem?
