Create a new ‘AngularAxis’ object

`visible`

- A single toggle to hide the axis while preserving interaction like dragging. Default is true when a cheater plot is present on the axis, otherwise false`type`

- Sets the angular axis type. If *linear*, set `thetaunit` to determine the unit in which axis value are shown. If *category, use `period` to set the number of integer coordinates around polar axis.`autotypenumbers`

- Using *strict* a numeric string in trace data is not converted to a number. Using *convert types* a numeric string in trace data may be treated as a number during automatic axis `type` detection. Defaults to layout.autotypenumbers.`categoryorder`

- Specifies the ordering logic for the case of categorical variables. By default, plotly uses *trace*, which specifies the order that is present in the data supplied. Set `categoryorder` to *category ascending* or *category descending* if order should be determined by the alphanumerical order of the category names. Set `categoryorder` to *array* to derive the ordering from the attribute `categoryarray`. If a category is not found in the `categoryarray` array, the sorting behavior for that attribute will be identical to the *trace* mode. The unspecified categories will follow the categories in `categoryarray`. Set `categoryorder` to *total ascending* or *total descending* if order should be determined by the numerical order of the values. Similarly, the order can be determined by the min, max, sum, mean or median of all the values.`categoryarray`

- Sets the order in which categories on this axis appear. Only has an effect if `categoryorder` is set to *array*. Used with `categoryorder`.`thetaunit`

- Sets the format unit of the formatted *theta* values. Has an effect only when `angularaxis.type` is *linear*.`period`

- Set the angular period. Has an effect only when `angularaxis.type` is *category*.`direction`

- Sets the direction corresponding to positive angles.`rotation`

- Sets that start position (in degrees) of the angular axis By default, polar subplots with `direction` set to *counterclockwise* get a `rotation` of *0* which corresponds to due East (like what mathematicians prefer). In turn, polar with `direction` set to *clockwise* get a rotation of *90* which corresponds to due North (like on a compass),`hoverformat`

- Sets the hover text formatting rule using d3 formatting mini-languages which are very similar to those in Python. For numbers, see: https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Formatting.md#d3_format And for dates see: https://github.com/d3/d3-time-format#locale_format We add one item to d3's date formatter: *%{n}f* for fractional seconds with n digits. For example, *2016-10-13 09:15:23.456* with tickformat *%H~%M~%S.%2f* would display *09~15~23.46*`uirevision`

- Controls persistence of user-driven changes in axis `rotation`. Defaults to `polar<N>.uirevision`.`color`

- Sets default for all colors associated with this axis all at once: line, font, tick, and grid colors. Grid color is lightened by blending this with the plot background Individual pieces can override this.`showline`

- Determines whether or not a line bounding this axis is drawn.`linecolor`

- Sets the axis line color.`linewidth`

- Sets the width (in px) of the axis line.`showgrid`

- Determines whether or not grid lines are drawn. If *true*, the grid lines are drawn at every tick mark.`gridcolor`

- Sets the color of the grid lines.`gridwidth`

- Sets the width (in px) of the grid lines.`tickmode`

- Sets the tick mode for this axis. If *auto*, the number of ticks is set via `nticks`. If *linear*, the placement of the ticks is determined by a starting position `tick0` and a tick step `dtick` (*linear* is the default value if `tick0` and `dtick` are provided). If *array*, the placement of the ticks is set via `tickvals` and the tick text is `ticktext`. (*array* is the default value if `tickvals` is provided).`nticks`

- Specifies the maximum number of ticks for the particular axis. The actual number of ticks will be chosen automatically to be less than or equal to `nticks`. Has an effect only if `tickmode` is set to *auto*.`tick0`

- Sets the placement of the first tick on this axis. Use with `dtick`. If the axis `type` is *log*, then you must take the log of your starting tick (e.g. to set the starting tick to 100, set the `tick0` to 2) except when `dtick`=*L<f>* (see `dtick` for more info). If the axis `type` is *date*, it should be a date string, like date data. If the axis `type` is *category*, it should be a number, using the scale where each category is assigned a serial number from zero in the order it appears.`dtick`

- Sets the step in-between ticks on this axis. Use with `tick0`. Must be a positive number, or special strings available to *log* and *date* axes. If the axis `type` is *log*, then ticks are set every 10^(n*dtick) where n is the tick number. For example, to set a tick mark at 1, 10, 100, 1000, ... set dtick to 1. To set tick marks at 1, 100, 10000, ... set dtick to 2. To set tick marks at 1, 5, 25, 125, 625, 3125, ... set dtick to log_10(5), or 0.69897000433. *log* has several special values; *L<f>*, where `f` is a positive number, gives ticks linearly spaced in value (but not position). For example `tick0` = 0.1, `dtick` = *L0.5* will put ticks at 0.1, 0.6, 1.1, 1.6 etc. To show powers of 10 plus small digits between, use *D1* (all digits) or *D2* (only 2 and 5). `tick0` is ignored for *D1* and *D2*. If the axis `type` is *date*, then you must convert the time to milliseconds. For example, to set the interval between ticks to one day, set `dtick` to 86400000.0. *date* also has special values *M<n>* gives ticks spaced by a number of months. `n` must be a positive integer. To set ticks on the 15th of every third month, set `tick0` to *2000-01-15* and `dtick` to *M3*. To set ticks every 4 years, set `dtick` to *M48*`tickvals`

- Sets the values at which ticks on this axis appear. Only has an effect if `tickmode` is set to *array*. Used with `ticktext`.`ticktext`

- Sets the text displayed at the ticks position via `tickvals`. Only has an effect if `tickmode` is set to *array*. Used with `tickvals`.`ticks`

- Determines whether ticks are drawn or not. If **, this axis' ticks are not drawn. If *outside* (*inside*), this axis' are drawn outside (inside) the axis lines.`ticklen`

- Sets the tick length (in px).`tickwidth`

- Sets the tick width (in px).`tickcolor`

- Sets the tick color.`showticklabels`

- Determines whether or not the tick labels are drawn.`showtickprefix`

- If *all*, all tick labels are displayed with a prefix. If *first*, only the first tick is displayed with a prefix. If *last*, only the last tick is displayed with a suffix. If *none*, tick prefixes are hidden.`tickprefix`

- Sets a tick label prefix.`showticksuffix`

- Same as `showtickprefix` but for tick suffixes.`ticksuffix`

- Sets a tick label suffix.`showexponent`

- If *all*, all exponents are shown besides their significands. If *first*, only the exponent of the first tick is shown. If *last*, only the exponent of the last tick is shown. If *none*, no exponents appear.`exponentformat`

- Determines a formatting rule for the tick exponents. For example, consider the number 1,000,000,000. If *none*, it appears as 1,000,000,000. If *e*, 1e+9. If *E*, 1E+9. If *power*, 1x10^9 (with 9 in a super script). If *SI*, 1G. If *B*, 1B.`minexponent`

- Hide SI prefix for 10^n if |n| is below this number. This only has an effect when `tickformat` is *SI* or *B*.`separatethousands`

- If "true", even 4-digit integers are separated`tickfont`

- Sets the tick font.`tickangle`

- Sets the angle of the tick labels with respect to the horizontal. For example, a `tickangle` of -90 draws the tick labels vertically.`tickformat`

- Sets the tick label formatting rule using d3 formatting mini-languages which are very similar to those in Python. For numbers, see: https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Formatting.md#d3_format And for dates see: https://github.com/d3/d3-time-format#locale_format We add one item to d3's date formatter: *%{n}f* for fractional seconds with n digits. For example, *2016-10-13 09:15:23.456* with tickformat *%H~%M~%S.%2f* would display *09~15~23.46*`layer`

- Sets the layer on which this axis is displayed. If *above traces*, this axis is displayed above all the subplot's traces If *below traces*, this axis is displayed below all the subplot's traces, but above the grid lines. Useful when used together with scatter-like traces with `cliponaxis` set to *false* to show markers and/or text nodes above this axis.`categoryarraysrc`

- Sets the source reference on Chart Studio Cloud for categoryarray .`tickvalssrc`

- Sets the source reference on Chart Studio Cloud for tickvals .`ticktextsrc`

- Sets the source reference on Chart Studio Cloud for ticktext .

- Sets the horizontal domain of this polar subplot (in plot fraction).`y`

- Sets the vertical domain of this polar subplot (in plot fraction).`row`

- If there is a layout grid, use the domain for this row in the grid for this polar subplot .`column`

- If there is a layout grid, use the domain for this column in the grid for this polar subplot .

Create a new ‘RadialAxis’ object

`visible`

- A single toggle to hide the axis while preserving interaction like dragging. Default is true when a cheater plot is present on the axis, otherwise false`type`

- Sets the axis type. By default, plotly attempts to determined the axis type by looking into the data of the traces that referenced the axis in question.`autotypenumbers`

- Using *strict* a numeric string in trace data is not converted to a number. Using *convert types* a numeric string in trace data may be treated as a number during automatic axis `type` detection. Defaults to layout.autotypenumbers.`autorange`

- Determines whether or not the range of this axis is computed in relation to the input data. See `rangemode` for more info. If `range` is provided, then `autorange` is set to *false*.`rangemode`

- If *tozero*`, the range extends to 0, regardless of the input data If *nonnegative*, the range is non-negative, regardless of the input data. If *normal*, the range is computed in relation to the extrema of the input data (same behavior as for cartesian axes).`range`

- Sets the range of this axis. If the axis `type` is *log*, then you must take the log of your desired range (e.g. to set the range from 1 to 100, set the range from 0 to 2). If the axis `type` is *date*, it should be date strings, like date data, though Date objects and unix milliseconds will be accepted and converted to strings.

- Determines on which side of radial axis line the tick and tick labels appear.`hoverformat`

- Sets the hover text formatting rule using d3 formatting mini-languages which are very similar to those in Python.
