Welcome to the documentation for PlotlyJS.jl, a Julia interface to the [plotly.js][_plotlyjs] visualization library.
The goals of PlotlyJS.jl are:
- Make it convenient to construct and manipulate plotly visualizations
- Provide infrastructure for viewing plots on multiple frontends and saving
plotly graphics to files
To install PlotlyJS.jl, open up a Julia REPL, press

PlotlyJS.jl comes with built-in support for saving figures to files via the integration between PlotlyBase.jl (a dependency of PlotlyJS.jl) and Plotly's kaleido tool.
See exporting figures for more information.
If you would like to have a more exhaustive set of top-level functions for constructing plots, see the Plots.jl package. This package is the
plotlyjs Plots.jl backend and is fully supported by Plots.
