Using PYOMO + GLPK on Streamlit Share

Hello,
I’m not able to install pyomo on Streamlit Sharing.
Anyone has the same experience?

Hi @Tianoklein1, welcome to the Streamlit community!! :clap: :partying_face:

I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble installing pyomo on sharing. Could you please share any error message you’re getting? That will help us to reproduce it. A screenshot would help too!

I was able to successfully install pyomo by including pyomo in my requirements.txt file. The demo/example repo can be found here GitHub - snehankekre/pyomo-test: test

Note that in their documentation, there is a section about conditional dependencies:

Extensions to Pyomo, and many of the contributions in pyomo.contrib, also have conditional dependencies on a variety of third-party Python packages including but not limited to: numpy, scipy, sympy, networkx, openpxl, pyodbc, xlrd, pandas, matplotlib, pymysql, pyro4, and pint. Pyomo extensions that require any of these packages will generate an error message for missing dependencies upon use.

If you’re using pyomo extensions that require additional dependencies, do include them in your requirements file.

Happy Streamlit’ing! :balloon:

Sorry. My mistake.
I mean, GLPK is getting error to install on streamlitshare.

Hi @Tianoklein1,

I was able to reproduce the GLPK error on my personal Linux computer and on Streamlit sharing. The problem seems to be that the glpk Python package requires some non-obvious apt-get dependencies. i.e glpk requires additional software to be installed on sharing.

In particular, it requires libglpk-dev and libgmp3-dev. To install both of them on Streamlit sharing, create a packages.txt file in your repo with the following entries:

libglpk-dev
libgmp3-dev

And include the following in your requirements.txt:

pyomo
glpk

Once you create the packages file and reboot your app, both pyomo and glpk will install successfully. :confetti_ball:

I’ve updated the demo repo with the required entries in the packages file: GitHub - snehankekre/pyomo-test: test

Happy Streamlit’ing! :balloon:
