Project χ vs Plotly Oval 17

Hi @Jayson.Harshbarger.47 , Project χ seems like an amazing tool! I was just wondering how does it compare to services like https://labworm.com/tool/plotly that seem to perform a similar function..?

Thank you for the comment. Actually, Plotly and Project χ have very different goals and functionality. Plotly, the open-source tool, is a graphing library and the Plotly website is one of many interfaces to the Plotly to help generate Plotly graphs. They alos have interfaces for Python, R, MATLAB, and others.

Project χ, on the other hand, is an open-source web framework (for lack of a better term) for creating standalone data visualization websites. The visualizations are built using d3, pure HTML, or charting libraries like Chiasm or Vega. I've also been attempting to integrate Plotly but it still needs some work. Project χ gives you a set of tools that help build a functional standalone website.

In summary, Plotly provides graphing, analytics, and stats tools. Project χ provides tools for building web applications that integrate with graphing, analytics, and stats tools.

Thanks for clearing up the differences. I trust that Project χ will be very handy to the many biological tool developers that visit LabWorm. Keep it up!
