How to create pie chart using plotly in R?


To create pie chart using plotly, we first need to find the count data based on categories and then use the plot_ly function by mentioning chart type as "pie".

To find the count data, we can use count function from dplyr package after that plot_ly function will be applied.

Check out the below example to understand how it can be done.

Example

Following snippet creates the mtcars data −

data(mtcars)
head(mtcars,20)

Output

The following mtcars data is created −
