Python Native Visualizations in Spotfire

Having a iframe or embedded "Python Visualization" in Spotfire is a good idea. There are a lot of Python based visualization mechanism exist which follow a simple pattern -

DataFrame ➡️Some Transformation using Python ➡️ Visualization as Plot

Benefit of adding as an independent visualization are -

  • Easy to duplicate, move and configure visualization

  • Using python native visuals as details visualization

  • Low learning curve for existing python audience, to attract more developers

  • Reusable Python code - to replicate charts as and when needed, without much python experience as well.

Suggested options available may be :

  • Configure DataTable from Visualization Properties (will act as input DataFrame)

  • Axes Expression replaced by Python Code Snippet

  • Allow saving Visualization Code to Library, making it reusable.

I agree that Visualization Mods are awesome, however to create them from scratch needs a learning curve.
