Text elements

Streamlit apps usually start with a call to st.title to set the app's title. After that, there are 2 heading levels you can use: st.header and st.subheader.

Pure text is entered with st.text, and Markdown with st.markdown.

We also offer a "swiss-army knife" command called st.write, which accepts multiple arguments, and multiple data types. And as described above, you can also use magic commands in place of st.write.
