I once worked on web sites with multiple big servers for everything - the web pages themselves, the Oracle database, additional RAID systems and so on. No longer. This is my server, content generator, file system, network connection, and the user-side WiFi access point:
I tried making a custom bundle with just scatter and scattergl and no transforms, but the minimized file is only 3% smaller.
Would it be possible to radically downsize plotly? At the risk of shocking everyone, I could even do without any interactive features. A nice clear plot with axis labels is really the only requirement. Okay, 4 colors and 2 line types would be nice.
What answer am I looking for? I could imagine things like:
- A way to identify unused code and delete it.
- You can tell me that plotly is the wrong tool for the job, ideally suggesting a replacement.
- Surprise me and say that with IOT and microcontrollers on the upswing a “plotly light” is on the way any day now.
Thanks for any input.
