Awesome Streamlit Awesome

The fastest way to build Awesome Tools and Apps! Powered by Python!

The purpose of this project is to share knowledge on how Awesome Streamlit is and can become. Pull requests are very welcome!

Streamlit has just been announced (Oct 2019) but I see the potential of becoming the Iphone of Data Science Apps. And maybe it can even become the Iphone of Technical Writing, Code, Micro Apps and Python.

This project provides

  • A curated list of Awesome Streamlit resources. See below.
  • An awesome Streamlit application with a gallery of Awesome Streamlit Apps.
    • Feel free to add your awesome app to the gallery via a Pull request. It's easy (see below).
  • A vision on how awesome Streamlit is and can become.
  • A best practices example and starter template of an awesome, multipage app with an automated CI/ CD pipeline, deployed to the cloud and running in a Docker container.

The Magic of Streamlit

The only way to truly understand how magical Streamlit is to play around with it. But if you need to be convinced first, then here is the 4 minute introduction to Streamlit!

Afterwards you can go to the Streamlit docs to get started. You might also visit Awesome Streamlit docs.

Introduction to Streamlit

Awesome Resources

Getting Started with the Awesome Streamlit Repository


  • An Operating System like Windows, OsX or Linux
  • A working Python installation.
    • We recommend using 64bit Python 3.7.4.
  • a Shell
    • We recommend Git Bash for Windows 8.1
    • We recommend wsl for For Windows 10
  • an Editor
  • The Git cli


Clone the repo

git clone

cd into the project root folder

cd awesome-streamlit

Create virtual environment

via python

Then you should create a virtual environment named .venv

python -m venv .venv

and activate the environment.

On Linux, OsX or in a Windows Git Bash terminal it's

source .venv/Scripts/activate

or alternatively

source .venv/bin/activate

In a Windows terminal it's

or via anaconda

Create virtual environment named awesome-streamlit

conda create -n awesome-streamlit python=3.7.4 

and activate environment.

activate awesome-streamlit

Then you should install the local requirements

pip install -r requirements_local.txt

Finally you need to install some spacy dependencies

python -m spacy download en_core_web_sm
python -m spacy download en_core_web_md
python -m spacy download de_core_news_sm

Build and run the Application Locally

streamlit run

or as a Docker container via

invoke --rebuild

Run the Application using the image on Dockerhub

If you don't wan't to clone the repo and build the docker container you can just use docker run to run the image from Dockerhub

To run bash interactively

docker run -it -p 80:80 --entrypoint "/bin/bash" marcskovmadsen/awesome-streamlit:latest

To run the streamlit interactively on port 80

docker run -it -p 80:80 --entrypoint "streamlit" marcskovmadsen/awesome-streamlit:latest run

Code quality and Tests

We use

  • isort for sorting import statements
  • autoflake to remove unused imports and unused variables
  • black the opinionated code formatter
  • pylint for static analysis
  • mypy for static type checking
  • pytest for unit to functional tests

to ensure a high quality of our code and application.

You can run all tests using

invoke test.all

Streamlit Tests

I've created a first version of an awesome streamlit test runner. You run it via

streamlit run

or in Docker

docker run -it -p 80:80 --entrypoint "streamlit" marcskovmadsen/awesome-streamlit:latest run

Awesome Streamlit Test Runner


We use the power of Invoke to semi-automate the local workflow. You can see the list of available commands using

$ invoke --list
Available tasks:                            Build Docker image
  docker.push                             Push the Docker container                              Run the Docker container interactively.                       Run the Docker container interactively
  docker.system-prune                     The docker system prune command will free up space
  test.all (test.pre-commit, test.test)   Runs isort, autoflake, black, pylint, mypy and pytest
  test.autoflake                          Runs autoflake to remove unused imports on all .py files recursively
  test.bandit                             Runs Bandit the security linter from PyCQA.                              Runs black (autoformatter) on all .py files recursively
  test.isort                              Runs isort (import sorter) on all .py files recursively
  test.mypy                               Runs mypy (static type checker) on all .py files recursively
  test.pylint                             Runs pylint (linter) on all .py files recursively to identify coding errors
  test.pytest                             Runs pytest to identify failing tests


You can configure the app in the file.

Please note that Streamlit has its own config files in the ~/.streamlit folder.

CI/ CD and Hosting

The application is

  • build as a Docker image and tested via Azure Pipelines builds
    • You find the Dockerfiles here and the Azure pipelines yml files here

Azure Pipelines


  • released via Azure Pipelines

Azure Pipelines

  • to a web app for containers service on Azure on the cheapest non-free pricing tier

Azure Pipelines

The Awesome-Streamlit Package

You can build the package using

cd package
python sdist bdist_wheel

If you wan't to publish the package to PyPi you should first

update the version number in the file. The format is YYYYmmdd.version. For example 20191014.2

Then you run

twine upload dist/awesome-streamlit-YYYYmmdd.version.tar.gz -u <the-pypi-username> -p <the-pypi-password>

For more info see the package

Project Layout

The basic layout of a application is as simple as


As our application grows we would refactor our file into multiple folders and files.

  • assets here we keep our css and images assets.
  • models - Defines the layout of our data in the form of
    • Classes: Name, attribute names, types
    • DataFrame Schemas: column and index names, dtypes
    • SQLAlchemy Tables: columns names, types
  • pages - Defines the different pages of the Streamlit app
  • services - Organizes and shares business logic, models, data and functions with different pages of the Streamlit App.
    • Database interactions: Select, Insert, Update, Delete
    • REST API interactions, get, post, put, delete
    • Pandas transformations

and end up with a project structure like

└── src
    └── assets
    |    └── css
    |    |   ├── app.css
    |    |   ├── component1.css
    |    |   ├── component2.css
    |    |   ├── page1.css
    |    |   └── page2.css
    |    └── images
    |    |   ├── image1.png
    |    |   └── image2.png
    ├── core
    |   └── services
    |       ├──
    |       └──
    └── pages
    |   └── pages
    |       ├──
    |       └──
    └── shared
        └── models
        |   ├──
        |   └──
        └── components

Further refactoring is guided by by this blog post and the Angular Style Guide.

We place our tests in a test folder in the root folder organized with folders similar to the app folder and file names with a test_ prefix.

└── test
    ├── core
    |   └── services
    |       ├──
    |       └──
    └── pages
    |   └── pages
    |       ├── page1
    |       |   └──
    |       └── page2
    └── shared
        └── models
        |   ├──
        |   └──
        └── components
