Hi everyone! I want to create a model where the data is in the excel file located in the computer. After developing the app I want to send it to the client. What i want to know is how can I use the excel file as the data source after deploying the app in the streamlit cloud while keeping its confidentiality?
You could load the Excel file into the cloud (there are a few posts in the forum on connecting to google cloud excel files), or use a DB holding the data, or look at this post which shows how to put an API on an Excel file:
You’ll likely want to add authentication too (again there are a few posts on doing this).
