# Different ways to use the API

st.download_button('Download CSV', text_contents, 'text/csv')
st.download_button('Download CSV', text_contents)  # Defaults to 'text/plain'

with open('myfile.csv') as f:
   st.download_button('Download CSV', f)  # Defaults to 'text/plain'

# ---
# Binary files

binary_contents = b'whatever'

# Different ways to use the API

st.download_button('Download file', binary_contents)  # Defaults to 'application/octet-stream'

with open('myfile.zip', 'rb') as f:
   st.download_button('Download Zip', f, file_name='archive.zip')  # Defaults to 'application/octet-stream'

# You can also grab the return value of the button,
