Read files from local directory on deployed app

Hi, I have an app that read files from directory on my machine.
It works great while being local. But when I deployed my app to the Streamlit cloud it didn’t have access to my files any more (I guess.). There is no error. It just empty folder while its not.
I checked the platform (with the line: print(platform.uname())) on Streamlit cloud and its returned:

uname_result(system='Linux', node='localhost', release='5.10.133+', version='#1 SMP Fri Jul 29 14:49:43 UTC 2022', machine='x86_64')

How do I ensure that my deployed app ‘‘knows’’ my paths from my local host?

Hi @Idank96, when you deploy an app on the internet (regardless of whether you’re using Streamlit Community Cloud or some other service), the app is hosted by a server that doesn’t have access to your local machine. As a result, the app will not be able to access the files stored on your local computer. You would need to store these files in the GitHub repository for your app instead.

Thanks!
