Installation with python 3.8 for versions > 0.62.0 stopped working

I am trying to pip install steamlit on Windows using python 3.8. Latest release (0.66.0) fails. I realized a fix was made at 0.53.0 and indeed it installed fine. Using a “binary search” I found that starting from 0.63.0 it failed again to install.

Hi @yoavch, welcome to the Streamlit community.

Can you be more specific? What is the error you are getting?

Here is the log:

The error is quoted above. The reason why this issue comes up is because starting with 0.63 of Streamlit, we added Apache Arrow as a dependency via pyarrow. For whatever reason, pyarrow via pip wants to compile from source, which requires Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools.

The install is generally a one-time thing, so once you install the compiler tools, you shouldn’t need to do anything for future Streamlit installs.

Thank you. I will try it.
And happy to join this community.
