Need help getting started

Hello, I am a newbie in Streamlit and I am trying to follow “Get Started” documentation, but I cannot go beyond this point:

streamlit run uber_pickups.py
{ENTER}
File “”, line 2
streamlit run uber_pickups.py
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I also tried URL version but I get this error:

File “”, line 2
$ streamlit run https://github.com/.../uber_pickups.py
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I appreciate your comments on this matter.

Regards,
Alex

Hi @amezar00,

Welcome to the Streamlit community!

I would start with

streamlit hello

and see if that works. Also you can follow the videos created by @dataprofessor and shared by @randyzwitch on the following link

I think the video is a great resource!

Unfortunately your github link does not work, so if you have other questions about a specific issue with that repo feel free to send an updated link. I hope those resources are helpful to you!
