  • Create interactive figures with go-plotly!
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 18 Jul 2021
    I have used both https://github.com/wcharczuk/go-chart and https://github.com/gonum/gonum/tree/master/graph for charts, but my need for charts and graphs isn't constant. Since these are far more popular projects, there might be some hesitance for people to use something else without a specific differentiator. What is the biggest difference in your mind? I use a fair bit of Python, but not for graphs and charts. Is yours more similar to plotly? I know Gonum gets a lot of inspiration from Python libraries, but perhaps yours is a more specific equivalent to Plotly? I don't know exactly what you mean about interactivity until I get to play with it. I'm wrapping up a master's project now and might have a few weeks to poke at some visualizations.

    So far I've been using gonum anyway the couple times I've needed a chart, so I've used gonum, and while I did get confused in a few cases, I never tried the alternative I've heard mentioned: https://github.com/wcharczuk/go-chart Not sure how it compares, but if I ever have some time, I would love to contribute to gonum especially.
