Installing Plotly

Iḿ trying to install plotly & set up streaming, but i can seem to get past step 1 (installing plotly).
Every reference to plotly i try in python gives the same response:

import plotly
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
File “plotly.py”, line 1, in
import plotly.plotly as py # plotly library
ImportError: No module named plotly

plotly.version
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
NameError: name ‘plotly’ is not defined

I´ve read through this forum & updated pip & python, as well as put the correct username & API key in the credentials file, all to no avail.

Anyone got any ideas for a beginner?

Try downloading the free version of Enthought’s Canopy, which installs with a GUI and comes the most recent version of Plotly for free: https://store.enthought.com/downloads/
