... ngrok.


Sometimes you need to give somebody a demo and this person cannot sit next to you. This can be a stakeholder or a fellow developer. In these situations there's a great tool you can use to create a tunnel to your laptop. It's called ngrok.


Notes

The config file we used in this video is;

authtoken: <YOUR TOKEN>
tunnels:
  streamlit:
    addr: 8501
    proto: http
    auth: "vincent:password2020"

You can use this config file by pointing to it directly.

ngrok start streamlit --config path/to/config.yml

But if you've updated your global config file, then you can also run;

ngrok start streamlit
