  • 📨 Ability to turn websocket compression on/off via the config option server.enableWebsocketCompression. This is useful if your server strips HTTP headers and you do not have access to change that behavior.
  • 🗝️ Out-of-the-box support for CSRF protection using the Cookie-to-header token technique. This means that if you're serving your Streamlit app from multiple replicas you'll need to configure them to to use the same cookie secret with the server.cookieSecret config option. To turn XSRF protection off, set server.enableXsrfProtection=false.

Notable bug fixes:

  • 🖼️ Added a grace period to the image cache expiration logic in order to fix multiple related bugs where images sent with st.image or st.pyplot were sometimes missing.

Release date: June 2, 2020

Highlights:

  • 📅 Support for date ranges in st.date_picker. See docs for more info, but the TLDR is: just pass a list/tuple as the default date and it will be interpreted as a range.

  • 📊 Changed behavior of st.pyplot to auto-clear the figure only when using the global Matplotlib figure (i.e. only when calling st.pyplot() rather than st.pyplot(fig)).

Release date: March 26, 2020

Highlights:

  • ⏲️ Ability to set expiration options for @st.cache'ed functions by setting the max_entries and ttl arguments. See docs.
  • 🆙 Improved the machinery behind st.file_uploader, so it's much more performant now! Also increased the default upload limit to 200MB (configurable via server.max_upload_size).
  • 🔒 The server.address config option now binds the server to that address for added security.
  • 📄 Even more details added to error messages for @st.cache for easier debugging.

Release date: February 15, 2020

Highlights:

  • 📄 Improved error messages for st.cache. The errors now also point to the new caching docs we just released. Read more here!

Breaking changes:

  • 🐍 As announced last month, Streamlit no longer supports Python 2. To use Streamlit you'll need Python 3.5 or above.

Release date: February 4, 2020

Highlights:

  • 📺 Ability to record screencasts directly from Streamlit! This allows you to easily record and share explanations about your models, analyses, data, etc. Just click ☰ then "Record a screencast". Give it a try!

Release date: January 29, 2020

Highlights:

  • ⌨️ Support for password fields! Just pass type="password" to st.text_input().

Release date: January 14, 2020

Highlights:

  • 🗺️ Support for all DeckGL features! Just use Pydeck instead of st.deck_gl_chart. To do that, simply pass a PyDeck object to st.pydeck_chart, st.write, or magic.

    Note that as a preview release things may change in the near future. Looking forward to hearing input from the community before we stabilize the API!

    The goals is for this to replace st.deck_gl_chart, since it is does everything the old API did and much more!

  • 🆕 Better handling of Streamlit upgrades while developing. We now auto-reload the browser tab if the app it is displaying uses a newer version of Streamlit than the one the tab is running.

  • 👑 New favicon, with our new logo!

Notable fixes:

  • Magic now works correctly in Python 3.8. It no longer causes docstrings to render in your app.

Breaking changes:

  • Updated how we calculate the default width and height of all chart types. We now leave chart sizing up to your charting library itself, so please refer to the library's documentation.

    As a result, the width and height arguments have been deprecated from most chart commands, and use_container_width has been introduced everywhere to allow you to make charts fill as much horizontal space as possible (this used to be the default).

Release date: December 20, 2019

Highlights:

  • 📤 Preview release of the file uploader widget. To try it out just call st.file_uploader!

    Note that as a preview release things may change in the near future. Looking forward to hearing input from the community before we stabilize the API!

  • 👋 Support for emoji codes in st.write and st.markdown! Try it out with st.write("Hello :wave:").

Breaking changes:

  • 🧹 st.pyplot now clears figures by default, since that's what you want 99% of the time. This allows you to create two or more Matplotlib charts without having to call pyplot.clf every time. If you want to turn this behavior off, use st.pyplot(clear_figure=False)
  • 📣 st.cache no longer checks for input mutations. This is the first change of our ongoing effort to simplify the caching system and prepare Streamlit for the launch of other caching primitives like Session State!

Release date: November 30, 2019

Highlights:

  • 🐕 You can now tweak the behavior of the file watcher with the config option server.fileWatcherType. Use it to switch between:
    • auto (default) : Streamlit will attempt to use the watchdog module, and falls back to polling if watchdog is not available.
    • watchdog : Force Streamlit to use the watchdog module.
    • poll : Force Streamlit to always use polling.
    • none : Streamlit will not watch files.

Notable bug fixes:

  • 🐱 Ability to call streamlit run directly with Github and Gist URLs. No need to grab the "raw" URL first!
  • 📃 Cleaner exception stack traces. We now remove all Streamlit-specific code from stack traces originating from the user's app.

Release date: October 23, 2019

Highlights:

  • 💯 New input widget for entering numbers with the keyboard: st.number_input()
  • 📺 Audio/video improvements: ability to load from a URL, to embed YouTube videos, and to set the start position.

  • 🔄 Streamlit now automatically selects an unused port when 8501 is already in use.
  • 🎁 Sidebar support is now out of beta! Just start any command with st.sidebar. instead of st.
  • ⚡ Performance improvements: we added a cache to our websocket layer so we no longer re-send data to the browser when it hasn't changed between runs
  • 📈 Our "native" charts st.line_chart, st.area_chart and st.bar_chart now use Altair behind the scenes
  • 🔫 Improved widgets: custom st.slider labels; default values in multiselect
  • 🕵️‍♀️ The filesystem watcher now ignores hidden folders and virtual environments
  • 💅 Plus lots of polish around caching and widget state management

Breaking change:

  • 🛡️ We have temporarily disabled support for sharing static "snapshots" of Streamlit apps. Now that we're no longer in a limited-access beta, we need to make sure sharing is well thought through and abides by laws like the DMCA. But we're working on a solution!

Release date: September 19, 2019

Highlights:

  • ✨ Magic commands! Use st.write without typing st.write. See https://docs.streamlit.io/en/latest/api.html#magic-commands

  • 💎 Fixed multiple bugs and improved polish of our newly-released interactive widgets

Release date: July 9, 2019

Highlights:

  • ⚡ Support for interactive widgets! 🎈🎉

Release date: July 1, 2019

Highlights:

  • 💾 Ability to save Vega-Lite and Altair charts to SVG or PNG
  • 🐇 We now cache JS files in your browser for faster loading
  • ⛔ Improvements to error-handling inside Streamlit apps

Release date: June 24, 2019

Highlights:

  • 📈 Greatly improved our support for named datasets in Vega-Lite and Altair
  • 🙄 Added ability to ignore certain folders when watching for file changes. See the server.folderWatchBlacklist config option.
  • ☔ More robust against syntax errors on the user's script and imported modules

Release date: June 10, 2019

Highlights:

  • Streamlit is more than 10x faster. Just save and watch your analyses update instantly.
  • We changed how you run Streamlit apps: $ streamlit run your_script.py [script args]
  • Unlike the previous versions of Streamlit, streamlit run [script] [script args] creates a server (now you don't need to worry if the proxy is up). To kill the server, all you need to do is hit Ctrl+c.

Why is this so much faster?

Now, Streamlit keeps a single Python session running until you kill the server. This means that Streamlit can re-run your code without kicking off a new process; imported libraries are cached to memory. An added bonus is that st.cache now caches to memory instead of to disk.

What happens if I run Streamlit the old way?

If you run $ python your_script.py the script will execute from top to bottom, but won't produce a Streamlit app.

What are the limitations of the new architecture?

  • To switch Streamlit apps, first you have to kill the Streamlit server with Ctrl-c. Then, you can use streamlit run to generate the next app.
  • Streamlit only works when used inside Python files, not interactively from the Python REPL.

What else do I need to know?

  • The strings we print to the command line when liveSave is on have been cleaned up. You may need to adjust any RegEx that depends on those.

  • A number of config options have been renamed:

    Old configNew config
    proxy.isRemoteserver.headless
    proxy.liveSaveserver.liveSave
    proxy.runOnSaveserver.runOnSave
    proxy.watchFileSystemserver.runOnSave
    proxy.enableCORSserver.enableCORS
    proxy.portserver.port
    browser.proxyAddressbrowser.serverAddress
    browser.proxyPortbrowser.serverPort
    client.waitForProxySecsn/a
    client.throttleSecsn/a
    client.tryToOutliveProxyn/a
    client.proxyAddressn/a
    client.proxyPortn/a
    proxy.autoCloseDelaySecsn/a
    proxy.reportExpirationSecsn/a

What if something breaks?

If the new Streamlit isn't working, please let us know by Slack or email. You can downgrade at any time with these commands:

pip install --upgrade streamlit==0.37
conda install streamlit=0.37

What's next?

Thank you for staying with us on this journey! This version of Streamlit lays the foundation for interactive widgets, a new feature of Streamlit we're really excited to share with you in the next few months.
