Plotly and Google Colab

Plotly is super nice as it fixed the critical issue of non-interactivity in Python MatPlotLib. Sure MatPlotLib is superpowerful but still, you need to iterate likemad if you want to change anything and is not super easy to explore data points on mouseover etc. Plotly is quite nice but does not play well with CoLab environment unless you call initialization in EVERY SINGLE CELL. Luckily, someone solved that problem for you. Check out this StackExchange answer:

Yeah, another weird quirk of Google Colab vs regular jupyter notebook…
