I just started with Bokeh and looked at the docs but couldn’t really figure this out easily.
I have an existing application. Uses angularJS with Java Spring backend. The plotting is done by getting the data via REST request from the backend and uses a JS plotting library nvd3 to plot it. In short, we hate this plotting library and are looking for a better option. The data being plot is actually created with python and is soon going to be sent to the client through a Flask app in development. Currently the data is created in batch, loaded into a database and served up by Spring.
How could we replace our js plotting library with Bokeh?
Does this require running bokeh server separately from Flask? Can we just embed the result of the call somehow?
Imagine this as something like an app that gives you a text box for you to type a ticker symbol and a few other parameters and get back both the data you want and a plot made from bokeh.
What’s the easiest way to do this? We don’t really want to use python for anything more than serving up data or a plot. That is, we’re not going to serve up an html page using Flask as the page is already created using angularJS.
