Deploy your app
Streamlit Community Cloud lets you deploy your apps in just one click, and most apps will deploy in only a few minutes. If you don't have an app ready to deploy, fork or clone one from our App gallery — you can find apps for machine learning, data visualization, data exploration, A/B testing and more. You can also fork and deploy samples straight from the New app button. Once you've deployed your app, check out how you can Edit your app with GitHub Codespaces.
If you want to deploy your app on a different cloud service, check out the Deploy Streamlit apps article in our Knowledge Base.
Add your app to GitHub
Streamlit Community Cloud launches apps directly from your GitHub repo, so your app code and dependencies need to be on GitHub before you try to deploy your app. For more information on how to specify dependencies, see App dependencies.
Your directory structure should look similar to this:
your-repository/ ├── your_app.py └── requirements.txt
If you are including any custom Configuration or Theming, make sure your config file is saved relative to the root of your repo. Within your repo, your config file should be named
your-repository/ ├── .streamlit/ │ └── config.toml ├── your_app.py └── requirements.txt
Although you can deploy multiple apps from the same repository, there can be only one configuration file.
Deploy your app
From your workspace at share.streamlit.io, click "New app" from the upper-right corner of your workspace.
Fill in your repo, branch, and file path. As a shortcut, you can also click "Paste GitHub URL" to paste a link directly to
An app URL with a random hash is prefilled but you can change this to a custom subdomain instead. In the example below, the app would be deployed to
https://red-balloon.streamlit.app/. You can always change your subdomain later. See more about Custom subdomains at the end of this page.
Advanced settings for deployment
Streamlit Community Cloud supports all released versions of Python that are still receiving security updates. Streamlit Community Cloud defaults to version 3.9. You can select a version of your choice from the "Python version" dropdown in the "Advanced settings" modal. If an app is running a version of Python that becomes unsupported, it will be forcibly upgraded to the oldest, supported version of Python and may break.
(Optional) If you are connecting to a data source or want to specify the Python version for your app, you can do that by clicking "Advanced settings" before you deploy the app. Learn more about Secrets management.
Watch your app launch
Your app is now deploying and you can watch while it launches. Most apps take only a couple of minutes to deploy, but if your app has a lot of dependencies it may take longer to deploy the first time. After the initial deployment, any change that does not touch your dependencies should show up immediately.
The Streamlit Community Cloud logs on the right hand side of your app are only viewable to users with developer access to your repository. These logs help you debug any issues with the app. Learn more about Streamlit Community Cloud logs.
Your app URL
That's it — you're done! Your app now has a unique subdomain URL that you can share with others. Read more about how to Share your app with viewers.
If the "Custom subdomain (optional)" field is blank when you deploy your app, a URL is assigned following a structure based on your GitHub repo. The URL begins with your GitHub username or organization owning your repo, followed by your repo name, app path, and a short hash. If you deploy from a branch other than
master, the URL also includes the branch name.
https://[GitHub username or organization]-[repo name]-[app path]-[branch name]-[short hash].streamlit.app
For example, this is an app deployed from the
streamlit organization. The repo is
demo-self-driving and the app name is
streamlit_app.py in the root directory. The branch name is
master and therefore not included.
Setting a custom subdomain makes it much easier to share your app since you can choose something memorable. Whether you set a custom subdomain during deployment or later, your app's URL will appear as:
To view or customize your app subdomain from the dashboard:
- Click the overflow icon (more_vert) to the app's right and select "Settings".
- View the "General" tab in the App settings modal. Your app's unique subdomain will appear here.
- Pick a custom subdomain between 6 and 63 characters in length for your app's URL and hit "Save".
It's that simple! You can then access your app by visiting your customized URL 🎉.
If a custom subdomain is not available (e.g. because it's already taken), you'll see an error message like this:
