How can I remove the success message in jupyter?

I am using plotly in a jupyter notebook. Whenever I render a chart, it first prints a message:

“High five! You successfully sent some data to your account on plotly. View your plot in your browser at [link] or inside your account where it is named ‘d3-cloropleth-map’”

Is there a way to remove this message? I really don’t want it in my notebook, as this is for a school project and we want it to look polished.

Hi @caseyah,

I’m not really sure where this message is coming from, but I don’t see it in Jupyter when I run this snipped with 3.4

import plotly.plotly as py
import plotly.graph_objs as go

trace0 = go.Scatter(
    x=[1, 2, 3, 4],
    y=[10, 15, 13, 17]
trace1 = go.Scatter(
    x=[1, 2, 3, 4],
    y=[16, 5, 11, 9]
data = [trace0, trace1]

py.iplot(data, filename = 'basic-line')

Do you see it in this case? If not, could you add an example of when you get the message? Also, please include the version of you’re using. Thanks!


Thanks for your answer, @jmmease!

I don’t see it with your code, but I’m still seeing it with mine:
I’m using plotly 3.4.2.

import pandas as pd
import plotly, api_key=key)

for col in data_538.columns:
    data_538[col] = data_538[col].astype(str)

scl = [[0.0, 'rgb(242,240,247)'],[0.2, 'rgb(218,218,235)'],[0.4, 'rgb(188,189,220)'],\
            [0.6, 'rgb(158,154,200)'],[0.8, 'rgb(117,107,177)'],[1.0, 'rgb(84,39,143)']]

data_538['text'] = data_538['state'] + '<br>' +\
    'AVerage per 100k people '+data_538['avg_hatecrimes_per_100k_fbi']

data = [ dict(
        colorscale =  scl,
        autocolorscale = False,
        locations = data_538['code'],
        z = data_538['avg_hatecrimes_per_100k_fbi'].astype(float),
        locationmode = 'USA-states',
        text = data_538['text'],
        marker = dict(
            line = dict (
                color = 'rgb(255,255,255)',
                width = 2
        colorbar = dict(
            title = "Hate Crimes per 100k"
    ) ]

layout = dict(
        title = 'Hate crimes per 100k people',
        geo = dict(
            projection=dict( type='albers usa' ),
            showlakes = True,
            lakecolor = 'rgb(255, 255, 255)',

fig = dict( data=data, layout=layout )

py.iplot( fig, filename='d3-cloropleth-map' )```

Hi @caseyah,

The data_538 data frame isn’t defined in the code above so I’m not able to run it. Could you add a URL to the dataset? When I replace it with another dataframe I don’t see the message.


Hi @jmmease, sorry about that!

Here is a link to the data:

However, I’m not sure it’s an issue with the data. The only other thing that would be different when you run it is the authentication, do you think I could be getting the message because I’m on the free plan of plotly?


Hi @caseyah,

I’m still not able to run the example because the dataset doesn’t include a code column. I’m also not sure that it’s related to the data, but it always best to start troubleshooting with the same example :slightly_smiling_face:

Another option is to switch to using offline mode, which doesn’t upload any data and won’t produce any logging messages.
