Can't import streamlit anymore!

My streamlit was working fine a couple of days ago but now it does not even import. I deleted, and removed cache, even reinstall anaconda python, nothing helped.

This is the error:

    740         if v == 'true':

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

In [20]:

Do you have a config file at any of these locations?

  • [your project folder]/.streamlit/config.toml
  • ~/.streamlit/config.toml

If so, my guess is there’s a syntax error in one of those. Probably something that looks like foo= (with nothing on the right side). If you see something like that, please remove it from the config file and try running Streamlit again.

(And in the meantime, I’ve opened a bug on our end since we should throw a clearer error message in that case!)

Actually the error in the config file should be near line 3, character 25.

Empty value is invalid (line 3 column 1 char 25)

Yes, I messed up the config file. Deleted that from home folder. All is good now.

Thank you :slight_smile:
