Streamlit Overview

Turns data scripts into shareable web apps in minutes. All in pure Python. No front‑end experience required.

Streamlit: The Basics

Streamlit is an open-source Python library that makes it easy to create and share beautiful, custom web apps for machine learning and data science. In just a few minutes you can build and deploy powerful data apps.

In practice, a Streamlit application is just a .py file where you add a few Streamlit commands and then you run it with streamlit run:

streamlit run [-- script args]

As soon as you run the script as shown above, a local Streamlit server will spin up and your app will open in a new tab in your default web browser. This app is your canvas, where you'll draw charts, text, widgets, tables, and more. This .py file is all you need to build a fully-featured web-app!

What gets drawn in the app is up to you. For example st.text writes raw text to your Streamlit app, and st.line_chart draws a line chart. Refer to Streamlit's API documentation to see all commands that are available to you.
