Plotly is a collaborative platform for analyzing, graphing, and sharing data. It's like GitHub, for data and graphs.
Users get powerful analytical tools to make sense of data with beautiful graphs. The product is online, social, and collaborative, meaning you don't have to work alone, or download tools. You can do all your coding, analytics, graphing, and collaboration inside Plotly.
Plotly is also flexible. You can stream data, or import files from your computer, Dropbox, or Google Drive. The data grid has fits, custom functions, stats, and more. The GUI lets you style line charts, scatter plots, bubble charts, histograms, 2D histograms, box plots, heatmaps, and error bars. Plotly also has log axes, date axes, multiple axes, and subplots.
Plotly offers a Python sandbox, and scientific graphing libraries for Python, R, MATLAB, Perl, Julia, Arduino, and REST, and is ideal for styling interactive IPython graphs. For dashboard solutions, check out plotly.js.
