Plotly Dash suits well where you need to build a web-based reporting tool as a minimum viable product. You will be surprised when you build your first hosted web-based reporting tool in a few minutes without the need for web development expertise. However, when it comes to building a more complete solution, you may feel a bit restricted by the options provided by the API. But as you imagine, this is the cost of the abstraction of the web development layer, in other words, simplicity vs completeness. Still, Plotly Dash is a powerful option whenever you prefer simplicity over completeness.
