api_create(x = last_plot(), filename = NULL, fileopt = c("overwrite",
  "new"), sharing = c("public", "private", "secret"), ...)

## S3 method for class 'plotly'
api_create(x = last_plot(), filename = NULL,
  fileopt = "overwrite", sharing = "public", ...)

## S3 method for class 'ggplot'
api_create(x = last_plot(), filename = NULL,
  fileopt = "overwrite", sharing = "public", ...)

## S3 method for class 'data.frame'
api_create(x, filename = NULL,
  fileopt = "overwrite", sharing = "public", ...)

api_download_plot(id, username)

api_download_grid(id, username)

api(endpoint = "/", verb = "GET", body = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

An R object to hosted on plotly's web platform. Can be a plotly/ggplot2 object or a data.frame.

filename

character vector naming file(s). If x is a plot, can be a vector of length 2 naming both the plot AND the underlying grid.

fileopt

character string describing whether to "overwrite" existing files or ensure "new" file(s) are always created.

sharing

If 'public', anyone can view this graph. It will appear in your profile and can appear in search engines. You do not need to be logged in to Plotly to view this chart. If 'private', only you can view this plot. It will not appear in the Plotly feed, your profile, or search engines. You must be logged in to Plotly to view this graph. You can privately share this graph with other Plotly users in your online Plotly account and they will need to be logged in to view this plot. If 'secret', anyone with this secret link can view this chart. It will not appear in the Plotly feed, your profile, or search engines. If it is embedded inside a webpage or an IPython notebook, anybody who is viewing that page will be able to view the graph. You do not need to be logged in to view this plot.

...

For api(), these arguments are passed onto httr::VERB(). For api_create(), these arguments are included in the body of the HTTP request.

id

a filename id.

username

a plotly username.

endpoint

the endpoint (i.e., location) for the request. To see a list of all available endpoints, call api(). Any relevant query parameters should be included here (see examples).

verb

name of the HTTP verb to use (as in, httr::VERB()).

body

body of the HTTP request(as in, httr::VERB()). If this value is not already converted to JSON (via jsonlite::toJSON()), it uses the internal to_JSON() to ensure values are "automatically unboxed" (i.e., vec.
