Five call limit for "fetch_csv"


I've been developing an algorithm which pulls in multiple external datasets-- as I was testing, I ran into the following error:

MethodCalledTooManyTimes: 0033 fetch_csv may only be invoked 5 times

Would it be possible to allow an arbitrary number of fetcher calls? The workaround would be to externally compile this data then pull it all at once, but I'd rather stick with the fetch_csv method to limit the potential points of failure in my pipeline.

Hi Jim,

We're actually working on improvements that should allow you to import more of your own data to work with. I'm curious, what types of datasets are you pulling in? Did you generate them, or collect them from another source? I'd love to hear more. If you're uncomfortable answering in public, feel free to email in to [email protected].
