Deploy a Dashboard#

Let’s take your dashboard to the next level and get it into the hands of your users. We’ll deploy it to Hugging Face Spaces to make it easily accessible.


Before we begin, ensure that you’ve signed up for Hugging Face and logged into your account. If not, simply click the “Sign Up” button on the Hugging Face page and follow the instructions to create your account.

Clone the Project#

First things first, let’s clone the project:

  1. Open panel-Org/build_dashboard.

  2. Click the three vertical dots, then select “Duplicate this Space”.

Duplicate Space

A new form will pop up. Change the “Visibility” to “Public” if you want to share it with the world.

Now, click “Duplicate Space”.

Hugging Face will now start building your image, which should take less than a minute.

Once done, you’ll have your own copy of the dashboard running.

Check the Files#

Let’s take a quick look at the files tab:

Files Tab

The “Files Tab” makes it incredibly easy to update your project:

  • + Add File: Use this option to add or update files via drag and drop.

  • File: Click on any file and then hit “Edit” to make changes. Remember to “Commit changes” when you’re done.

Check the Dockerfile#

Take a look at the Dockerfile. It should look something like this:

FROM python:3.11


COPY ./requirements.txt /code/requirements.txt
RUN python3 -m pip install --no-cache-dir --upgrade pip
RUN python3 -m pip install --no-cache-dir --upgrade -r /code/requirements.txt

COPY . .

CMD ["panel", "serve", "/code/", "--address", "", "--port", "7860",  "--allow-websocket-origin", "*", "--num-procs", "2", "--num-threads", "0", "--index", "app"]

RUN mkdir /.cache
RUN chmod 777 /.cache


Here’s a breakdown of the Dockerfile:

  • FROM python:3.11: Starts from a Python 3.11 image.

  • WORKDIR /code: Executes commands from the /code folder.

  • pip install ...: Installs the requirements.

  • COPY . .: Copies the repository files to the current WORKDIR.

  • CMD [...]: Runs the specified command when the Docker container starts.

  • "--address", "", "--port", "7860": Serves the app at

  • "--allow-websocket-origin", "*": Allows requests from any domain, including

  • "--num-procs", "2": Starts 2 server processes to handle users in parallel.

  • "--num-threads", "0": Uses threading to execute callbacks and bound functions concurrently.

  • "--index", "app": Also serves the app at

Delete Your Space#

If your dashboard isn’t intended for real usage, please consider deleting it to conserve resources.

Navigate to the “Settings” tab, scroll to the bottom of the page, and follow the instructions to “Delete this space”.
