Plotly is an interactive graphing library. Databricks supports Plotly 2.0.7. To use Plotly, install the Plotly PyPI package and attach it to your cluster.


Inside Databricks notebooks we recommend using Plotly Offline. Plotly Offline may not perform well when handling large datasets. If you notice performance issues, you should reduce the size of your dataset.

To display a Plotly plot:

  1. Specify output_type='div' as an argument to the Plotly plot() function.

  2. Pass the output of the plot() function to Databricks displayHTML() function.
