Streamlit Cloud Git LFS Support

Wassup Guys,

I am currently writing a transcriptor app. I’ve deployed it since a couple versions to my cloud.
However, I added a few files to Git LFS because they’re too big to be uploaded normally.
I store the logic for my models as .npy, .pth, .bin files.

Everythings works locally normally, but the cloud project seems to have issues cloning my stored files.
How can I solve this? I don’t want to use an ugly workaround.

Hi @fuccDebugging -

Streamlit Cloud supports using GitLFS, but if I’m not mistaken it does require credits to be purchased (from GitHub) over a certain size. How large are the files you are using?


Using Git LFS Premium didn’t work either.

However, my solution:

checkFiles = ("distilbert-dlf/pytorch_model.bin",
                  "wandering-sponge-4.pth", "label_embeddings.npy")
    for path in checkFiles:
        if os.path.exists(path) == False:
            print('I miss :', path)
            msg = st.warning("🚩 Models need to be downloaded... ")
                with st.spinner('Initiating...'):
                    url_pth = "
                    url_npy = ""
                    url_bin = ""

                    r_pth = requests.get(url_pth, allow_redirects=True)
                    r_npy = requests.get(url_npy, allow_redirects=True)
                    r_bin = requests.get(url_bin, allow_redirects=True)

                    open("wandering-sponge-4.pth", 'wb').write(r_pth.content)
                    open("label_embeddings.npy", 'wb').write(r_npy.content)
                    del r_pth, r_npy, r_bin
                    msg.success("Download was successful ✅")
                msg.error("Error downloading model files...😥")
