2D Histograms in plotly.js

How to make a D3.js-based 2D histogram in javascript. A 2D histogram is a visualization of a bivariate distribution.

var x = [];
var y = [];
for (var i = 0; i < 500; i ++) {
	x[i] = Math.random();
	y[i] = Math.random() + 1;
}

var data = [
  {
    x: x,
    y: y,
    type: 'histogram2d'
  }
];
Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', data);
var x = [];
var y = [];
for (var i = 0; i < 500; i ++) {
	x[i] = Math.random();
	y[i] = Math.random() + 1;
}

var data = [
  {
    x: x,
    y: y,
    histnorm: 'probability',
    autobinx: false,
    xbins: {
      start: -3,
      end: 3,
      size: 0.1
    },
    autobiny: false,
    ybins: {
      start: -2.5,
      end: 4,
      size: 0.1
    },
    colorscale: [['0', 'rgb(12,51,131)'], ['0.25', 'rgb(10,136,186)'], ['0.5', 'rgb(242,211,56)'], ['0.75', 'rgb(242,143,56)'], ['1', 'rgb(217,30,30)']],
    type: 'histogram2d'
  }
];
Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', data);
var x0 = [];
var y0 = [];
var x1 = [];
var y1 = [];
var x2 = [];
var y2 = [];

for (var i = 0; i < 500; i ++)
{
	x0[i] = Math.random() + 1;
	y0[i] = Math.random() + 1.5;
}

for (var i = 0; i < 100; i ++)
{
	x1[i] = Math.random();
	y1[i] = Math.random() + 1;
}

for (var i = 0; i < 500; i ++)
{
	x2[i] = Math.random()*2;
	y2[i] = Math.random()*3;
}

var trace1 = {
  x: x0,
  y: y0,
  mode: 'markers',
  marker: {
    symbol: 'circle',
    opacity: 0.7,
	 color:'rgb(200,111,200)',
  },
  type: 'scatter',
};
var trace2 = {
  x: x1,
  y: y1,
  mode: 'markers',
  marker: {
    symbol: 'square',
    opacity: 0.7,
	 color:'cyan',
  },
  type: 'scatter'
};
var trace3 = {
  x: x2,
  y: y2,
  type: 'histogram2d',
  colorscale : [['0' , 'rgb(0,225,100)'],['1', 'rgb(100,0,200)']],
  
};

var data = [trace1, trace2, trace3];
Plotly.newPlot('myDiv', data);
