Add supported library: plotly

What is this new feature?
Add plotly as supported library.

Why should this feature be added?
Additional data visualization package to matplotlib. Give users more options with supported libraries. Potentially allows for use of interactive plots.

Who will use this new feature?

Hi @tommy_mikalson.
Your feature request has been granted as it meets our guidelines for adding libraries:

  1. Plotly will add functionality that is not supported by existing libraries. Eg. interactive plots
  2. Plotly is popular, well-documented, and widely used

Here is an example on how to use Plotly in MecSimCalc:

import as px
import pandas as pd

def main(inputs):
    # Create Plotly figure
    df = pd.DataFrame(dict(
        x=[1, 3, 2, 4],
        y=[1, 2, 3, 4]
    fig = px.line(df, x="x", y="y", title="Plotly Line Chart")

    # Convert figure to html code
    plotly_html = fig.to_html(full_html=False, include_plotlyjs=True)
    return {"plot": plotly_html}
