Upload a file larger than 800 GB


I’m currently working on a Dash project where users need to upload a csv file. The dash upload component supports only files smaller than 150 MB (I read somewhere). The files I need are around 800 MB up to 1GB.

Question 1: how can I solve this?

Question 2: When uploading works, how can I use the dataset on a multi Page App?

Kind regards, Sarah

Hi @Sarah.decock2,

I havent tried it, but i think this component should do for the upload,

Show And Tell -- Dash Resumable Upload


Thanks for the anwser!

Sorry for my late response. I have tried this before but still doesn’t work. When I tried the ‘npm run’ as described on the GitHub, I got the following error:
npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE npm ERR! errno 1 npm ERR! active_learning_platform@1.0.0 start: builder run build-dev npm ERR! Exit status 1 npm ERR! npm ERR! Failed at the active_learning_platform@1.0.0 start script. npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above.

When just try to run the Dash app with ‘index.py’ in the command line, I got the following error:

caught Error: dash_resumable_upload was not found.

header.py (I work with a multipage app)



app = dash.Dash(__name__, external_stylesheets=external_stylesheets)
dash_resumable_upload.decorate_server(app.server, 'uploads')

app.scripts.config.serve_locally = True
app.config.suppress_callback_exceptions = True

Is there something important that I did not do?

Thanks in advance

Kind regards,
