For my project I wanted to use the new pattern matching functionality. One problem I ran into is that I actually want to access the variable which is MATCHed inside the callback, because in this case it is some index that is then used deeper in the program. I could not find a built-in way to do it, so I kinda did one myself.
My question: Is there actually a better way to do this? Some official support on plotly side?
And for those wanting to do a similar thing in the future, this is what I used (when inside the callback function):
ctxt = callback_context ast.literal_eval(ctxt.triggered["prop_id"].split(".")).get( "theValueIWant" ),
