This is an unofficial Plotly Perl module. Currently I'm not affiliated in any way with Plotly. But I think plotly.js is a great library and I want to use it with perl.



Serialize the trace to JSON. This method should be called only by JSON serializer.


  • coloring

    Determines the coloring method showing the contour values. If *fill*, coloring is done evenly between each contour level If *heatmap*, a heatmap gradient coloring is applied between each contour level. If *lines*, coloring is done on the contour lines. If *none*, no coloring is applied on this trace.

  • end

    Sets the end contour level value. Must be more than `contours.start`

  • impliedEdits

  • labelfont

  • labelformat

    Sets the contour label formatting rule using d3 formatting mini-languages which are very similar to those in Python. For numbers, see:

  • operation

    Sets the constraint operation. *=* keeps regions equal to `value` *<* and *<=* keep regions less than `value` *>* and *>=* keep regions greater than `value` *[]*, *()*, *[)*, and *(]* keep regions inside `value[0]` to `value[1]` *][*, *)(*, *](*, *)[* keep regions outside `value[0]` to value[1]` Open vs. closed intervals make no difference to constraint display, but all versions are allowed for consistency with filter transforms.

  • showlabels

    Determines whether to label the contour lines with their values.

  • showlines

    Determines whether or not the contour lines are drawn. Has an effect only if `contours.coloring` is set to *fill*.

  • size

    Sets the step between each contour level. Must be positive.

  • start

    Sets the starting contour level value. Must be less than `contours.end`

  • value

    Sets the value or values of the constraint boundary. When `operation` is set to one of the comparison values (=,<,>=,>,<=) *value* is expected to be a number. When `operation` is set to one of the interval values ([],(),[),(],][,)(,](,)[) *value* is expected to be an array of two numbers where the first is the lower bound and the second is the upper bound.
