hvPlot and Panel: Visualize all your data easily, from notebooks to dashboards
Sophia Yang, James A. Bednar

This tutorial will show you how to use the Pandas or Xarray APIs you already know to interactively explore and visualize your data even if it is big, streaming, or multidimensional. Then just replace your expression arguments with widgets to get a web app that you can share as HTML+WASM or backed by a live Python server. These tools let you focus on your data rather than the API, and let you build linked, interactive drill-down exploratory apps without having to run a web-technology software development project, which you can then share without becoming an operations specialist.
