I’m trying to run a Streamlit app in a docker container. When I start the container, I get the Streamlit email prompt (see image), but I’m unable to enter anything into it, as the terminal automatically exits to a new line. As a result, the application does not appear to run. How do I get around this?
That’s a great catch — we should add something about that to our docs.
The way we address this right now is by passing the credentials via the Dockerfile:
RUN bash -c 'echo -e "\ [general]\n\ email = \"email@example.com\"\n\ " > /root/.streamlit/credentials.toml'
Or, if you don’t want to pass your actual email, you can use an empty string.
In the future we will probably also provide an API for passing in credentials via the command line. Here’s a Github issue I just created, so you can follow our progress
This is currently returning the error
bash: /root/.streamlit/credentials.toml: No such file or directory
Would the file path be different for a Docker build? Or possibly a root permissions issue?
Oh, I think you just have to
mkdir /root/.streamlit in the Dockerfile.
RUN mkdir -p /root/.streamlit RUN bash -c 'echo -e "\ [general]\n\ email = \"firstname.lastname@example.org\"\n\ " > /root/.streamlit/credentials.toml'
That made it work. Thanks!
