Getting Started with Streamlit for Data Science

By: Tyler Richards

Overview of this book

Streamlit shortens the development time for the creation of data-focused web applications, allowing data scientists to create web app prototypes using Python in hours instead of days. Getting Started with Streamlit for Data Science takes a hands-on approach to helping you learn the tips and tricks that will have you up and running with Streamlit in no time. You'll start with the fundamentals of Streamlit by creating a basic app and gradually build on the foundation by producing high-quality graphics with data visualization and testing machine learning models. As you advance through the chapters, you’ll walk through practical examples of both personal data projects and work-related data-focused web applications, and get to grips with more challenging topics such as using Streamlit Components, beautifying your apps, and quick deployment of your new apps. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to create dynamic web apps in Streamlit quickly and effortlessly using the power of Python.

Chapter 10: The Data Project – Prototyping Projects in Streamlit

In the previous chapter, we discussed how to create Streamlit applications that are specific to job applications. Another fun application of Streamlit is to try out new and interesting data science ideas and create interactive apps for others. Some examples of this include applying a new machine learning model to an existing dataset, carrying out an analysis on some data uploaded by users, or creating an interactive analysis on a private dataset. There are numerous reasons for making a project like this, such as personal education or community contribution.

In terms of personal education, often, the best way to learn a new topic is to observe how it actually works by applying it to the world around you or a dataset that you know closely. For instance, if you are trying to learn how Principal Component Analysis works, you can always learn about it in a textbook or watch someone else apply it to a dataset. However...
