Scatterpolar Not Available?

Hey there,

I’ve checked the forum here, and don’t see anything related for the Python API.

I’m working from the docs (https://plot.ly/python/polar-chart/) to create a polar chart.

The code is:
import plotly.plotly as py
import plotly.graph_objs as go

data = [
        r = [0.5,1,2,2.5,3,4],
        theta = [35,70,120,155,205,240],
        mode = 'markers',
        marker = dict(
            color = 'peru'

layout = go.Layout(
    showlegend = False

fig = go.Figure(data=data, layout=layout)
py.iplot(fig, filename = 'polar/basic')

This gives a result
AttributeError: module ‘plotly.graph_objs’ has no attribute ‘Scatterpolar’

I also ran an update to the library:
pip3 install --upgrade plotly
Collecting plotly
Downloading plotly-2.5.1.tar.gz (24.9MB)

from plotly import __version__

Gives “2.2.3”
Am I missing something obvious? Is the Scatterpolar graph available?


I think you need version 2.4

Thanks! Now I’m trying to figure out why pip upgrade to 2.5 didn’t affect my version number in jupyter notebook.


I had to upgrade pip (pip install --upgrade pip)
Then upgrade plotly again (pip install --upgrade plotly)
Then restart the notebook kernel.

Now I’m getting 2.5.1 as the version and the graph is showing properly.
