I am using plotly express and graph_objects to make plots I want to display and save to file. Some of these plots have a lot of point so I would like to keep them as webGl plots during rendering.
However, when exporting these to
.svg I would like to have them as vectors to avoid the blurryness described here: Blurry image while using plotly express
Basically I need render mode to be ‘webgl’ for display and ‘svg’ for saving. I am able to do it with this solution:
# create fig and show fig = px.line(df, x='x', y='y') fig.show() # save as svg dt = fig.to_dict() dt['data']['type'] ='scatter' # change from 'scattergl' write_image(dt, "test.svg")
This seems very hacky though. Is there a better way? I think an optional kwarg for
write_image() would be a big boon.
