Firstly, I have been overjoyed using Streamlit, and I really like the service. Everything except for this one small thing has been a breeze.
I am building a small app to use for an introductory course to corpus linguistics. Some of the functions I want to showcase are dependant on the “en_core_web_sm-2.2.0” for SpaCy. The repository can be found here:
Whenever these functions are called, the app will crash and return this error:
OSError: [E050] Can’t find model ‘en_core_web_sm’. It doesn’t seem to be a Python package or a valid path to a data directory.
Including the pip import line in the requirements.txt results in this error:
ERROR: Invalid requirement: ‘�\x08\x08���]\x02�dist/en_core_web_sm-2.2.0.tar\x00�|gXT˲(JRD\x04\x11AA\x01E\x01�\x19fV�d��1!q@\x04f�’ (from line 1 of https://github.com/explosion/spacy-models/releases/download/en_core_web_sm-2.2.0/en_core_web_sm-2.2.0.tar.gz)
Where exactly am I supposed to instruct the Streamlit Cloud to install this model? I have found previous mentions of a setup.sh file concerning Heroku deployment. If that is what I am supposed to do, where can I find the Streamlit Cloud documentation for it?
EDIT: I forgot to include the app url: https://firstglance.streamlit.app/
