Plotly graph empty in flask

Hi,

I’m relatively new to plotly+flask integration.

I’m trying to plot a bar graph on the flask server. Here’s my approach.

@app.route('/transactions_plot', methods=['GET'])
def get_transaction_plot():
   exp_category = {'x':['giraffes', 'orangutans', 'monkeys'],
               'y': [20, 14, 23]}
   my_plot_div = px.bar(exp_category, x='x', y='y')

   graph1Plot = plotly.offline.plot(my_plot_div, 
                config={"displayModeBar": False}, 
                show_link=False, include_plotlyjs=False, 
                output_type='div')

   return render_template('index.ejs',graph1Plot=Markup(graph1Plot))

I get this output when I check graph1Plot.

'<div>\n        \n        \n            <div id="72221a07-faa7-48f9-94eb-a802982d4369" class="plotly-graph-div" style="height:100%; width:100%;"></div>\n            <script type="text/javascript">\n
