[PlotlyJS.jl](https://github.com/spencerlyon2/Plotl...) leverages the unique features of Julia to bring the power of plotly.js to Julia users. PlotlyJS.jl has two main goals (1) Make it convenient to construct and manipulate _any_ plotly.js visualization from Julia and (2) provide infrastructure for viewing plots on multiple frontends and saving _publication quality plotly graphics_ to files. This talk will survey the capabilities of PlotlyJS.jl. Along the way we’ll pick up some Julia know-how and show some of the novel features PlotlyJS.jl brings to the plotly world.
