Hello All! Recently I’ve been working on slide automation projects and Streamlit has proved to be very effective in quickly scaling an idea to proof of concept and further.
I’d like to share an app that I created which scrapes Yahoo Finance data using yfinance library and then creates PowerPoint slides with information about selected company and some graphs showing revenue, stock price, etc.
I think the script can serve as a good starting point for more complex slide automation projects.
The app’s URL: https://pptx-generator.streamlit.app
GitHub Repo: https://github.com/arsentievalex/streamlit-pptx-generator
Any feedback is much appreciated
Really great app! I do love auto-generated powerpoints
We may have fancy streamlit dashboards, tableus, grafana’s but often it all comes to PowerPoint karaoke great PoC!
thanks, yeah exactly, especially in consulting and sales
Hey @Oleksandr_Arsentiev this sounds like it could be really cool but when I try it out on that app URL I get this error
Do you know what might be the issue?
it seems there is a problem with yfinance library at this moment, there was a GitHub issue opened yesterday for this error: https://github.com/ranaroussi/yfinance/issues/1291
hopefully, they will fix it soon
Oh ok good to know, fingers crossed!
there was a fix introduced and I pointed the requirements.txt to the dev branch for now, so the app should be working
