My app comes with some package code that needs to be installed. For example with
python setup.py install
pip install .
And I don’t want to add my github packgage URL to my requirements.txt file.
But when I deploy the app to the streamlit server it does not find the required libraries.
I tried adding a Procfile, but that did not work. Seems that is only for heroku.
Try adding a line to requirements.txt that is just a single dot (
-e . (which may be more handy in local development, as it will install the local package in editable mode.
Thanks, it just not best practice to add . to the requirements.txt. But it works. I guess, I should better separate the app code from the main library.
I agree that it’s a good idea to separate out the app code from the main library. One structure I tend to prefer, in the case where I have a python package that needs installed, and also a streamlit app to show it off is:
And then putting
-e . in the requirements.txt so that it installs the package code along with 3rd party libraries I’m using.
