Graphing
This documentation explains how to create presentation-ready graphs in Mito.
Graphing in Mito is designed to help you build intuition about your data and create presentation-ready graphs to communicate insights. Mito creates interactive and customizable graphs using the Plotly Express open source graphing library.
Like everything in Mito, when you create a graph, Mito generates the equivalent Python code so have complete control of your analysis.

Creating a new graph

The Graph button in the Mito toolbar will create a new graph in Mito.

Setting up the graph

Data Source: The sheet that contains the data that you want to graph.
Chart Type: The type of graph that you want to create. Mito supports:
X Axis: The data to graph along the x axis.
  • You can select multiple series either along the x or y axis (not both) as long as the series have similar dtypes.
Y Axis: The data to graph along the y axis.
  • You can select multiple series either along the x or y axis (not both) as long as the series have similar dtypes.
Color by Column: An additional column to further breakdown the graphed data using the color attribute.
  • For best results, select a column with few unique values.
  • This option is selectable for all graphs expect the Density heatmap.
Filter to safe size: By default, Mito only graphs the first 1000 rows of data to ensure that the browser tab doesn't crash while attempting to load too much data into the graph. Turning off filter to save size graphs the entire dataframe and may slow down or crash your browser tab.
