Plotly API rate limits
Updated November 18, 2015
For free users, Plotly throttles the number of requests made to its servers. This keeps server traffic and costs maneagable while still providing a useful experience. If you exceed the number of allowed requests, you will receive a message and have to wait 1 to 24 hours to make additional requests.
Limits on Requests to Plotly Servers
The API limits are as follows:
|API client||Exceptions||Per Day||Per Hour||API Version|
|Python, Arduino, R, MATLAB||None||50||30||V1|
|Plotly Web App (plot.ly)||GET requests are not limited||1000||None||V2|
To avoid limits in requests to Plotly servers, you have the option to upgrade to a Professional Plan.
