Plotly via Python API

Spent some time working with the Plotly Python API.  Able to read my data logger files and upload to a plot with ease. Will need to comment code better I know…just started playing with it and wanted to share. Upload all environmental data and if the additional “Annotation” field exist add that to the plot as well.

More Info at: Plotly Python API

Next steps: Create a way to add the annotation to the data file on the Arduino.
