pip install plotly "notebook>=5.3" "ipywidgets>=7.2"

Inside Jupyter notebook:

import plotly.graph_objs as go
fig = go.FigureWidget()
# Display an empty figure
# Add a scatter chart
fig.add_scatter(y=[2, 1, 4, 3])
# Add a bar chart
fig.add_bar(y=[1, 4, 3, 2])
# Add a title
fig.layout.title = 'Hello FigureWidget'

See the Python documentation for more examples.

Installation may be installed using pip...

pip install plotly==3.4.1

or conda.

conda install -c plotly plotly=3.4.1

Jupyter Notebook Support

For use in the Jupyter Notebook, install the notebook and ipywidgets packages using pip...

pip install "notebook>=5.3" "ipywidgets>=7.2"

or conda.

conda install "notebook>=5.3" "ipywidgets>=7.2"

JupyterLab Support (Python 3.5+)

For use in JupyterLab, install the jupyterlab and ipywidgets packages using pip...

pip install jupyterlab==0.35 "ipywidgets>=7.2"

or conda.

conda install jupyterlab=0.35 "ipywidgets>=7.2"

Then run the following commands to install the required JupyterLab extensions:

# Avoid "JavaScript heap out of memory" errors during extension installation
# (OS X/Linux)
export NODE_OPTIONS=--max-old-space-size=4096
# (Windows)
set NODE_OPTIONS=--max-old-space-size=4096

# Jupyter widgets extension
jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager@0.38 --no-build

# FigureWidget support
jupyter labextension install plotlywidget@0.5.1 --no-build

# offline iplot support
jupyter labextension install @jupyterlab/plotly-extension@0.18 --no-build

# JupyterLab chart editor support (optional)
jupyter labextension install jupyterlab-chart-editor@1.0 --no-build

# Build extensions (must be done to activate extensions since --no-build is used above)
jupyter lab build

# Unset NODE_OPTIONS environment variable
# (OS X/Linux)
# (Windows)

Static Image Export supports static image export using the to_image and write_image functions in the package. This functionality requires the installation of the plotly orca command line utility and the psutil Python package.

These dependencies can both be installed using conda:

conda install -c plotly plotly-orca psutil

Or, psutil can be installed using pip...

pip install psutil

and orca can be installed according to the instructions in the orca README.
