If you've tried using D3.js, it's a pretty poor developer experience, and that translates to spending a bunch of time getting the graphs one wants even for things that are conceptually pretty basic. Plotly isn't amazing (it's decent), but it's way better than than D3 unless you have very specialized needs.
D3.js is an amazing library for doing visualizations, charts/graphs, etc. We are experimenting with it for metric visualizations, marketing graphs/charts, and basically anywhere we could use this amazing library.
Creating online data visualizations to illustrate your potential or interact in new ways with your users. Including transistions, animations and graphs.
Charts, charts, charts. Data visualizations are a great way to communicate information to people who need to know it, quickly and concisely.
We use D3 for creating custom charts that aren't available in off-the-shelf libraries
