Plotly web server/ Plotly for R

I am new with plotly and I have couple of questions:

  1. Can the plotly web server be deployed on premises? is there any guideline or procedure for doing that?

  2. Can the plotly for R library ( be used for free even though one does not use the plotly web service?

Thank you

Yes and yes :slight_smile:

By default, the R library is completely free and open source (released under MIT license), but you may opt to premium services, such as sending a figure to an on-premise server via api_create().

You can review our On-Premise server options at and our hosted cloud options at You can also purchase R developer support at
