Creating a table in Plotly.js

Hi there!

Hope someone can help with this rather surprising question.
I just started using plotly.js for creating a dashboard for my site’s internal data. But some data display has too many columns and cannot be represented through chats or graphs. eg.

Date | URL | RECIPIENT EMAIL | SENDER EMAIL | TOTAL VIEWS

Is there a way to use plotly to create a table element with this data? I know I can do it in html or even D3, but it would be great if all my data is parsed and rendered through plotyjs’s renderer for default styling and layouts.

Thanks vey much!

plotly.js doesn’t currently have a table view. A workaround, potentially with JS but especially via Python, is to use some existing plot type e.g. heatmap and annotate it with text. A proper table widget is being in the works, can’t give an ETA yet.
