I got to know about plot.ly via this PyCon blog post about Startup Row selections for PyCon US 2013.
Then I tried it out. plot.ly enables you to create plots in your browser. They support plotting data via entering it, importing it from a file, or programming the plot in Python - the Python method seems to be fairly simple, conceptually, at least for simple plots.
I first tried it out using the Python method, but it did not work. No error message, but not output was displayed. Then I tried it out using the method of copy-pasting some data into the screen, and that method worked; it instantly created a plot.
I wrote to them about the problem with the Python plotting method, and one of the founders, Jack, replied, saying they currently have some issue with that. They are working on it.
Once they solve the issue, it may be a useful way of plotting using Python in the browser.
