Streamlit, a popular app framework for data science and machine learning, has reached its version 1.0 milestone. The open source project is curated by a company of the same name that offers a commercial service built on the platform. So far, the project has had more than 4.5 million GitHub downloads and is used by more than 10,000 organizations.
The framework fills a vital void between data scientists who want to develop a new analytics widget or app and the data engineering typically required to deploy these at scale. Data scientists can build web apps to access and explore machine-learning models, advanced algorithms, and complex data types without having to master back-end data engineering tasks.
Streamlit cofounder and CEO Adrien Treuille told VentureBeat that “the combination of the elegant simplicity of the Streamlit library and the fact that it is all in Python means developers can do things in hours that normally took weeks.”
Join us in San Francisco on July 11-12, where top executives will share how they have integrated and optimized AI investments for success and avoided common pitfalls.
The crowded landscape of data science apps
The tools are used by everyone from data science students to large companies. The company is seeing the fastest growth in tech-focused enterprises with a large base of Python users and a need to rapidly experiment with new apps and analytics.
“Every company has the same problems with lots of data, lots of questions, and too little time to answer all of them,” Treuille said.
Improvements in v1.0 include faster app speed and responsiveness, improved customization, and support for statefulness. The company plans to enhance its widget library, improve the developer experience, and make it easier for data scientists to share code, components, apps, and answers next year in 2022.
