I am currently deploying an app to streamlit sharing, where I allow users to play around with pre-trained text generation models, but also lets them train their own using their own dataset if they want to.
Due to the limited size of the VMs, I want to make it so that users can only train models if they have cloned the github repo to their local machine and are training using their own resources.
What I am not sure about however is how to know if my app is running in the streamlit sharing vm. Is there some kind of evironment variable I could check? IE
os.environ["IS_STREAMLIT_SHARING"] == True
And then I could do some conditional logic in my app like:
if os.environ.get("IS_STREAMLIT_SHARING"): st.warning("As you are on streamlit sharing you cannot run traning. Please clone repo to train your own model") else: # train model
If not, are there any other ways I could tell if an app is running on streamlit sharing or not?
Looking forward to your response.
EDIT: Add some more clarity to request
