Dash interactive filtering

Hi all

Interactive filtering (filtering graphs based on click actions on other graphs) is a standard expected feature in any dashboard.

The default behaviour of ‘clickData’ property in the Graph component is very limited. Particularly around the ability to ‘unclick’ a mark to undo a filter action (by clicking the already selected mark), persisting the filter choices when the callback is triggered and having a visual que for the current clicked mark on a graph.

In this app, I have implemented these features and they work as the below GIF shows.

It’s a hacky workaround that’s certainly going to introduce performance issues especially with large scale production apps, but still hope it will be of use for some.
