I have an issue sending and reading plotly charts over my RESTful API.
The user can request to receive the plot in a json format. However, I want to direct the user on how to load in the response back into a plotly chart.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a sample of what the API sends the user when the chart is requested:
import plotly.express as px def send_user_fig(): df = px.data.gapminder().query("country=='Canada'") fig = px.line(df, x="year", y="lifeExp", title='Life expectancy in Canada') fig.to_json() # fig.to_dict() (does not work - not JSON serializable due to ndarray) return fig
Here is a sample of how I want to direct the user on how to transform the response back into a plotly figure. this is where the error is:
# API returns fig in json format api_response = send_user_fig() fig = go.Figure( data=api_response.json()['data'], layout=api_response.json()['layout'] ) fig.show() # ERROR occurs
