Filter in Python

How to use filters in Python with Plotly.

New to Plotly?¶

Plotly's Python library is free and open source! Get started by downloading the client and reading the primer.
You can set up Plotly to work in online or offline mode, or in jupyter notebooks.
We also have a quick-reference cheatsheet (new!) to help you get started!

Version Check¶

Plotly's python package is updated frequently. Run pip install plotly --upgrade to use the latest version.

In [1]:
import plotly

Basic Example¶

In [2]:
import plotly.offline as off


subject = ['Moe','Larry','Curly','Moe','Larry','Curly','Moe','Larry','Curly','Moe','Larry','Curly']
score = [1,6,2,8,2,9,4,5,1,5,2,8]

data = [dict(
  type = 'scatter',
  x = subject,
  y = score,
  mode = 'markers',
  transforms = [dict(
    type = 'filter',
    target = 'y',
    operation = '>',
    value = 4

layout = dict(
    title = 'Scores > 4'

off.iplot({'data': data, 'layout': layout}, validate=False)
