Initialize and save state

I don’t know if this is a flask question or a dash question, but I’m wondering how one could initialize the dash app with a particular state. I’m currently prototyping a data viewer that’s capable of some limited analysis and selection and I thought it would be neat to be able to start up the app from a link as well as save one’s view so that it can be easily shared with others.

I think I can build a session server, but don’t quite understand how I could serve that info to the app itself.


This functionality isn’t quite possible right now. We are planning on building this functionality into the Plotly platform ( so that viewers can save and share “Dash App Views” to their Plotly account and view them alongside the rest of their files in their account ( I’ll keep this thread posted when this feature is available!

Has there been an update on this feature yet?
