In order to follow the examples in this documentation site, you should have the latest version of
plotly installed (126.96.36.19900), as detailed in the Getting Started guide. This documentation (under https://plotly.com/r) is compatible with
plotly version 4.x but not with version 3.x. In general you must also have the correct version of the underlying Plotly.js rendering engine installed, and the way to do that depends on the environment in which you are rendering figures: Dash. Read on for details about troubleshooting
plotly in these environments.
import problems or
AttributeErrors can be traced back to having multiple versions of
plotly installed. It's often worthwhile to uninstall before following the Getting Started instructions from scratch with one or the other. You can run the following commands in the console to fully remove
plotly before installing again:
Problems can also arise if you have a file named
plotly.Rin the same directory as the code you are executing.
If you are encountering problems using
plotly with Dash please first ensure that you have upgraded
dash to the latest version, which will automatically upgrade
dash-core-components to the latest version, ensuring that Dash is using an up-to-date version of the Plotly.js rendering engine for
plotly. If this does not resolve your issue, please visit our Dash Community Forum and we will be glad to help you out.
This is an example of a
plotly graph correctly rendering inside
library(plotly) fig <- plot_ly(x = c(0,1,2), y = c(3,7,9), type = 'bar') #fig library(dash) library(dashCoreComponents) library(dashHtmlComponents) app <- Dash$new() app$layout( htmlDiv( list( dccGraph( id = 'graph', figure= fig ))) ) #app$run_server()
app$run_server() to run the dash app.
If you get an error message stating that the
orca executable that was found is not valid, this may be because another executable with the same name was found on your system. Please specify the complete path to the Plotly-Orca binary that you downloaded.
What About Dash?
Learn about how to install Dash for R at https://dashr.plot.ly/installation.
Everywhere in this page that you see
fig, you can display the same figure in a Dash for R application by passing it to the
figure argument of the
Graph component from the built-in
dashCoreComponents package like this:
library(plotly) fig <- plot_ly() # fig <- fig %>% add_trace( ... ) # fig <- fig %>% layout( ... ) library(dash) library(dashCoreComponents) library(dashHtmlComponents) app <- Dash$new() app$layout( htmlDiv( list( dccGraph(figure=fig) ) ) ) app$run_server(debug=TRUE, dev_tools_hot_reload=FALSE)
