Create dashboard with tabs in plotly dash

Create dashboard with tabs in plotly dash using an interactive plotly data visualization library and dash web library.

Inputs: Tabs, drop down list and radio items

Create dashboard with tabs in plotly dash. Tabs are very useful when we want to display multi charts on a single page. We can divide data in a dashboard using tabs. In this dash app, I have added four tabs just for demonstration.

Other contents are same as well as in this post.

See below how tabs work in this dashboard?

CSS style of Tabs

Create css style of tabs before the dash app layout in this dashboard. We can change the color of selected tab and we can also change the size of tabs in this css style code. See below in the code template.

Layout of Tabs

Create the layout of tabs using the dash html and core components. Give id to tabs for callback in the dash app. Use name of tab styles in each dash core components to display tabs on the right position in the dash app.

App Layout

In tabs dash app, we need to put two times dash core components in the dash app. First time, we need to put in the dash app layout and second time after the dash app layout in the callback of tabs. See below, I have added dash core components in the dash app layout.

Second time, I have added tabs in the callback of tabs. Put the same dash core components after the callback and def tabs as well as I have added in the dash app layout. Then create callback for each tabs and display contents in each tab. See full code on the GitHub using the below link.
