Deploying a Streamlit app with python

Last year I created a 2020 Masters predictor, published on Tableau, which (correctly!) identified Dustin Johnson as the winner in the week before the tournament (you can see the dashboard here). This year, I want to create a similar app, but keep the entire process in python by leveraging the Streamlit API.
