Python Dashboard error py.dashboard_ops.upload

Hi, I’m trying to replicate the dashboard example here:

I got 2 errors:

  1. using the “fileId_from_url” function I get the raw_fileId as empty so that when I try to access it
    raw_fileId = re.findall("~[A-z]+/[0-9]+", url)[0][1: ]
    I get the error
    IndexError: list index out of range
  2. If I manually change “/” to “:” in the urls, I can go on. When I try to create the dashboard with the line:
    py.dashboard_ops.upload(my_dboard, ‘My First Dashboard with Pythonvv’)
    I get the error:
    raise exceptions.PlotlyRequestError(message, status_code, content)
  3. What if I want to try to run it offline? If I import “import plotly.offline as pyo” I can’t use “pyo.dashboard_ops.upload” anymore.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
I add the code below
