problem with sentdex data

set_symbol_lookup_date('2012-10-01')
fetch_csv('http://sentdex.com/api/finance/sentiment-signals/sample/', pre_func = preview)

It hangs there and was timed out as following:

TimeoutException: Fetcher data not processed in 360 seconds
There was a runtime error on line 9.

Hi Roy,

This error means that the input file is too big for Fetcher to read in. Fetcher has 360 seconds to read in the CSV file or it raises the timeout exception that you mentioned. In this case, I would recommend downloading the CSV to your local machine, and then uploading a subset of it to a public directory as outlined in the help documentation. A smaller file will be read in properly.

One other point -- we're working with Sentdex to store and provide the data natively on Quantopian similar to Accern, Estimize, Quandl and EventVestor.

When we get it polished up and available publicly, I'll come back and comment here.

Thanks
Josh
