  • fig is a Figure or a compatible dict. This is the central declarative object that describes every aspect of a plotly graph.
  • file may be a string referring to a local filesystem path, or a file-like object to be written to. If file is a string, then the file extension is used to infer the image format if possible.
  • The format may be used to explicitly specify the format, and it is required if file is not a string with a common extension. Supported formats are png, jpeg (jpg extension supported as well), webp, svg, pdf, and eps (with poppler installed).
