Hi there and thanks for plotly.js,

the question is is there an interface into plotly.js box plots where I can manually specify the median, quartilles, outlier points etc. instead of handing the raw data to plotly.js and letting it do the computation?

The problem I have is with rendering performance. I use this for showing the results of micro benchmarking so it is not uncommon for me to have a data set with 5 traces ranging 80k to 500k samples each. Trying to render this boxplot in Firefox I get the famous “unresponsive script” (Chrome works mostly fine). This is on a recent i7 with an up to date Firefox.

I already compute the median and other statistics in the main language (Elixir) so it’d be easy for me to compute the other statistics as well and just pass them in so plotly.js wouldn’t have to deal with that overload of data and recompute data I already computed.

Any help would be truly appreciated so I can make a nice and performant HTML formatter for the results

Thanks!
