Its 2018, how to IDV in Python?

I’ve got a fun little viz that I need to demo for Important People (IP) in early March [editor’s note: still not done… that deadline was highly optimistic!]. How to do it?

In Python? Sure. In a Jupyter notebook? Maybe. With Matplotlib? Probably not… at least I better have a look at the state of the alternatives.

Did I mention that it is essential for this viz to be *interactive*? It needs to allow the Important People to explore the predictions of some ML model, or at least allow me to explore them while they call out how to explore.

Years ago, I attempted to designate a particular plot the “hello, world” of data viz. Remember that? I think we should extend it to a hello world of interactive data viz. Maybe just choosing the number of digits is enough. Or should it follow the visual information seeking mantra? But “hello, world” cannot be too complicated.

yhat?
