Plotly Comments

Price has skyrocketed, API leaves much to be desired

about Plotly · · 1 Helpful

Plotly 2.0 is the only choice for a free Community account. The original is not available except with a Pro account, which is now $396 a YEAR, billed annually. This works out to $1.08 PER DAY, for ONE USER. Of course, if you only need it a few days a year, it isn't worth $400.

If it's for a business, then okay. Maybe you'd pay that much. But then you're looking at $948, and that's still for a cloud service.

Want on-premise, behind-the-firewall protection for your data? That'll be $9,950 please, and only for 5 licenses.

It works OKAY, assuming you're actually going to use javascript coding. If you're just trying to use the API, well, it's terrible. Unless you get the full support of the original with Pro or better, which of course you can't test out for free.

one of the fastest charting programs I've tested. It took about 62 ms to chart a line representing 99k pts and rescale the x & y axis. Nice pan and zoom features.
Open source.
