Timeline chart using plotly


I was wondering if plotly is able to produce timeline charts such as these.

According to this Wikipedia article, the answer is no however perhaps there is a good workaround available.


Here’s a possible solution using the new bar base attribute.

Perfect! Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

My x-axis would be UNIX timestamp and I have only two y-axis. Can I use start and end instead of x, y, and base in the plot?
