Problems with Animation

Dear all,
I want to do a simple animation:

using Plots
anim = Animation()
for θ in range(0,2π,length=10)

However, an error message apperars:

MethodError: no method matching _show(::IOStream, ::MIME{Symbol("image/png")}, ::Plots.Plot{Plots.PlotlyBackend})
Closest candidates are:

I don’t have PyPlot so can’t check, but to narrow down the problem I would recommend:

  1. Running the code from the REPL if you are currently running it from Atom/Juno, IJulia, or some other environment;
  2. Running the code with the default GR backend (i.e. comment out plotly()) to see whether it’s backend specific
  3. Running the code in a new environment with only Plots installed (you seem to have a lot of packages in your environment which is generally discouraged, unless you really all need them at the same time you should split your work up into project-specific environments with only those packages installed that you actually need)

You have to install the PlotlyBase package. When you ran plotly() it would have shown the following:

[ Info: For saving to png with the Plotly backend PlotlyBase has to be installed.

And without this package the gif file can’t be created.

Your code block does work with the default gr backend and if PlotlyBase is installed it will also work with plotly backend.
