  • go-plotly

    The goal of the go-plotly package is to provide a pleasant Go interface for creating figure specifications which are displayed by the plotly.js JavaScript graphing library.

  • go-chart

    go chart is a basic charting library in go.

    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.
