File uploader widget - accept_multiple_files flag


I’ve been using Streamlit for the past few months and having a blast so far. Thanks for building such an intuitive platform!

I have a question about uploading multiple files. Currently, I can achieve this locally by modifying (accept_multiple_files = True). Going forward this is a blocker for me as I’d like to deploy my app using the stock library. Is there a timeline to add the accept_multiple_files flag as an optional argument to the file_uploader widget? This feature is mentioned in the API reference, but is not currently implemented. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Hi @iainmacg,

We’re actually in the works of redesigning the file uploader and will be releasing the multiple file upload functionality in that release. We’re currently targeting early Q4 so stay tuned!
