Hi there! I am relatively new to plotly so I apologize if this is something already covered by the docs–if so please just help me find the appropriate place.
A common functionality desired in EDA is the ability to scatter columns against each other. Plotly almost has this with the splom plot type (
px.scatter_matrix(...)), however one really critical functionality that seems to be missing is the ability to filter which rows and columns get shown, a functionality present in seaborn. I had considered trying to do this manually by modifying the splom trace object, however it appears to primarily consist of a list of arrays, one for each column of the dataframe, meaning I don’t see an obvious way to remove single rows/columns as would be required to reproduce the functionality. I also looked into using subplots, and I think it might be feasible to achieve something similiar, but I then lose a lot of the convenience of
px.express because I have to, for example, manually link colorbars if I am coloring each subplot by a value, and manually setup hovertemplates. Does anyone have advice on how to reproduce this functionality? I am so grateful for your help!
