Hi, I need to insert shapes into a time series using PlotlyJS, and name them. I know how to do it using Plots or PGFPlotsX. For example, what I want is something similar to the following plot, produced with PGFPlotsX after some raw LaTeX code passed into the script:
This material is for teaching, and the combination of Pluto and PlotlyJS looks perfect due to the interactivity that we may get even in static HTML files. I had no problem replicating the example that is available in the PlotlyJS documentation:
Unfortunately, I have failed to accomplish this particular need in PlotlyJS, even in the more archaic version of my demands (just the shapes). Nevertheless, I also need to name the different shapes (as in the first plot above). My example below is not working as intended because I am not correctly passing the type Date array into shapes, and after many twists, I still do not know how to do it.
using PlotlyJS using Dates using MonthlyDates
My useless efforts surrounded this piece of code:
period10_5 = QuarterlyDate(1960, 1):Quarter(1):QuarterlyDate(2021,1) y1 = randn(length(period10_5)) y2 = rand(length(period10_5)) #z = period10_5 trace00 = scatter(;x = Date.(period10_5), y = y1, name = "Shrek", mode="markers+lines", marker_symbol = "circle", marker_size = "5", line_width = 0.3 , marker_color = "Blue") trace01 = scatter(;x = Date.(period10_5), y = y2, name = "Murphy", mode = "markers+lines", marker_symbol = "circle", marker_size = "5", line_width = 0.3, marker_color = "Red") shapes = rect(["period10_5", "period10_5"], ["period10_5", "period10_5"], 0, 1 ; fillcolor = "red", opacity = 0.2, line_width = 0, xref = period10_5, yref = "paper") layout00 = Layout(;title_text = "Shapes, my shapes", title_x = 0.5, shapes=shapes, xaxis = attr( title = "Quarterly obervations", tickformat = "%Y", hoverformat = "%Y-Q%q", tick0 = "1960/01/01", dtick = "M120"), #xaxis_range = [1960, 2020], yaxis_title = "Percentage points", #yaxis_range=[-2, 2], titlefont_size = 16) plot([trace00, trace01], layout00)
This produces the following plot, but I am unable to get the shapes.
Some help will be very much appreciated. Thanks.
