import plotly.express as go
import numpy as np
  
df = go.data.tips()
  
x = df['total_bill']
y = df['day']
  
plot = px.Figure(data=[px.Scatter(
    x=x,
    y=y,
    mode='lines',)
])
  
plot.update_layout(
    xaxis=dict(
        rangeselector=dict(
            buttons=list([
                dict(count=1,
                     step="day",
                     stepmode="backward"),
            ])
        ),
