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.

Organizing Streamlit apps

Each Streamlit app we create in this book should be contained in its own folder. It is tempting to create new files for each Streamlit app, but this promotes a bad habit that will bite us later when we talk about deploying Streamlit apps and deal with permissions and data for Streamlit.

For this book, I would recommend that you have a dedicated individual folder that will house all the apps you'll create throughout this book. I have named mine streamlit_apps. The following command will make a new folder called streamlit_apps and make it our current working directory:

mkdir streamlit_apps
cd streamlit_apps

All the code for this book is housed at https://github.com/tylerjrichards/Getting-Started-with-Streamlit-for-Data-Science, but I would highly recommend coding these by hand for practice.
