Currency Converter using Python 🐍 & Steamlit
Recently had reason to create a little currency converter app. I decided to do it it Python as I've not had the chance to use the language for a while.
I didn’t want to have to build a whole UI or access a fully blown db as it was just overkill.
After some research I decided on the following tech stack:
- Python 3.10
- Poetry - for dependency management
- Streamlit - for the UI framework
- CVS & Pandas - for data storage
- APILayer.io - for the currency convert API
I certainly had fun solving this little challenge.
Decided to spit the code architecture into sections to keep things neat ans tidy.
. └── currency-converter/ ├── api.py -- remote api cal related functions ├── audit_log.py -- read/write from audit log ├── common.py -- common lists, etc └── currency_converter.py -- main python file
There is a live demo of the app available here: https://jgibbarduk-currency-converter-currency-converter-v6ohj8.streamlit.app
