Plotly is a free and open-source graphing library for JavaScript. We recommend you read our Getting Started guide for the latest installation or upgrade instructions, then move on to our Plotly Fundamentals tutorials or dive straight in to some Basic Charts tutorials.

### Basic Overlaid Area Chart

var trace1 = {
x: [1, 2, 3, 4],
y: [0, 2, 3, 5],
fill: 'tozeroy',
type: 'scatter'
};

var trace2 = {
x: [1, 2, 3, 4],
y: [3, 5, 1, 7],
fill: 'tonexty',
type: 'scatter'
};

var data = [trace1, trace2];

Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', data);


### Overlaid Area Chart Without Boundary Lines

var trace1 = {
x: [1, 2, 3, 4],
y: [0, 2, 3, 5],
fill: 'tozeroy',
type: 'scatter',
mode: 'none'
};

var trace2 = {
x: [1, 2, 3, 4],
y: [3, 5, 1, 7],
fill: 'tonexty',
type: 'scatter',
mode: 'none'
};

var layout = {
title: 'Overlaid Chart Without Boundary Lines'
};

var data = [trace1, trace2];

Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', data, layout);


### Stacked Area Chart

var plotDiv = document.getElementById('plot');
var traces = [
{x: [1,2,3], y: [2,1,4], stackgroup: 'one'},
{x: [1,2,3], y: [1,1,2], stackgroup: 'one'},
{x: [1,2,3], y: [3,0,2], stackgroup: 'one'}
];

Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', traces, {title: 'stacked and filled line chart'});


### Normalized Stacked Area Chart

var plotDiv = document.getElementById('plot');
var traces = [
{x: [1,2,3], y: [2,1,4], stackgroup: 'one', groupnorm:'percent'},
{x: [1,2,3], y: [1,1,2], stackgroup: 'one'},
{x: [1,2,3], y: [3,0,2], stackgroup: 'one'}
];

Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', traces, {title: 'Normalized stacked and filled line chart'});



### Select Hover Points

var data = [
{
x: [0,0.5,1,1.5,2],
y: [0,1,2,1,0],
fill: 'toself',
fillcolor: '#ab63fa',
hoveron: 'points+fills',
line: {
color: '#ab63fa'
},
text: "Points + Fills",
hoverinfo: 'text'
},
{
x: [3,3.5,4,4.5,5],
y: [0,1,2,1,0],
fill: 'toself',
fillcolor: '#e763fa',
hoveron: 'points',
line: {
color: '#e763fa'
},
text: "Points only",
hoverinfo: 'text'
}]

var layout = {
title: 'Hover on <i>points</i> or <i>fill</i>',
xaxis: {
range: [0,5]
},
yaxis: {
range: [0,3]
}
}

Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', data, layout)
