Follow these 5 steps to Install Streamlit on Ubuntu 20.04.

1. Keep the server updated

Using the following command, please update the server:

# apt upgrade -y

2. Install python pip

The following command will established the Python package manager, pip:

# apt install python3-pip -y

3. Install Streamlit

Set up Streamlit with the python pip package manager.

# pip install streamlit

4. Deploy Streamlit app

One python file must be created using the following command in order to deploy the Streamlit application:

# vi

To the file, paste the following:

import streamlit as st
st.text_input("Your name", key="name")

# You can access the value at any point with:

Use the escape:wq key combination to save your work and close the file.

You can now deploy the application on port 80 by typing the following command:

# streamlit run --server.port 80

The Streamlit app can be accessed via a web browser by entering the server's IP address.

5. Use Screen

When you log out of an SSH session, Streamlit will automatically end the session. We need to utilise a screen tool to make it permanent. You can disconnect from the server using a different terminal after you've established a connection in screen. Specifically, a persistence session will be formed.

# screen -S streamlit

Deploy Streamlit app:

# streamlit run --server.port 80

Now disconnect from the server and open a new terminal; from there, use the following command to display information about your current screen experience.

# screen -list
command output

We finished the setup procedure and deployed our first app without any problems. I hope you understand now how to install Streamlit on Ubuntu 20.04.
