ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'plotly'

Hi,
I’m exploring the free version of viktor.ai and wanted to incorporate plotly, but no matter what I do I always get the error “ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘plotly’”.
How can I solve this?

Thanks, Ana

Hi Ana,

Welcome to this Community Forum! Thank you for posting.

Since plotly is a separate python package, this will need to be explicitly installed along with the VIKTOR package. Please see: VIKTOR docs - Use other Python Packages, for more information on this.

In summary, what you’ll need to do to be able to use any additional python package in your VIKTOR app:

  1. Add the package to the requirements.txt file (I advise you to ‘pin’ the version)
  2. Re-install the app, using viktor-cli install

Please let us know if that solves your problem.

Thank you! It worked :grinning:
