double[] xs = new double[] {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
double[] ys = new double[] {1, 4, 9, 16, 25};
formsPlot1.Plot.AddScatter(xs, ys);

Plot in the Cloud with ScottPlot

This figure is an example of ScottPlot running in the cloud. Every hour an Azure Function hits the GitHub API to get an updated list of stargazers, then uses ScottPlot to create a figure from this data and saves it to web-accessible blob storage. Since this automatically-generated plot is just a static image accessible by a URL, it can be displayed in places where JavaScript is not permitted (like in this readme file). Creating plots as images on a server allows dynamic plots to be displayed in many interesting places!
