I am building a Dash application for a school project that requires me to create a scatter plot. This was straightforward and easy to implement based on the Dash documentation. My question is this though: for the markers of my scatter plot, I was wondering if it were possible to replace the default markers with another object or image?
To describe it further this is the goal I have: in my scatter plot each point represents a gene in a dataframe. Each gene has a column that contains a list of pathways that this gene is part of. We want to color the markers by pathway but since most genes have several pathways I was wondering if it were possible to replace the marker with its own pie chart representing these pathways?
My initial idea is so create a function to generate the static pie chart image and use that for the marker but I am not even sure if this is possible from the searches I have done. There was a post here a couple here’s ago, How to make custom marker for Dash scattergl? that asked a similar question but at the time this was not possible. I was wondering if anything has changed on that front?
