Quantopian API / mobile apps

Is there any plan to release smartphone apps to control your quantopian algorithms and their stats?

In case the answer is no, is there any plan to release a public API to programmatically check those algorithm stats?

Regards.

You can view live algorithms in the browser your mobile or tablet. When you login to your Quantopian account, click the top menu, and select "Active Live Algorithms". Then choose the algo you want to view, and get directed to the live trading dashboard.

Cheers,
Alisa

Hi Alisa

I know you can open the website on the smartphone but it's a big pain cause it's logging you out very often. If you have the 2F authentication on it's a real nightmare.

Hi Jorge, sorry about the 2fa/logging-out issue. We have a fix internally and will release it after some more testing.

We don't currently have any plans to release native mobile apps, but that can certainly change based on user feedback. We would prefer to have a mobile-optimized website for phones and other mobile devices, as it speeds up our development cycle.

Of course, that only works if our mobile site is pleasant to use! Please let us know if you have any further feedback, thanks.

+1 for native mobile app. Mobile web view is so 2012 :-)

I'd like to see a public API as well, namely I'd like to locally edit algorithms on my computer using my favorite editor (that I'm comfortable in) and then have those automatically synced with my account rather than performing a copy&paste operation.

So although my use case is different than what the OP asked it'd still be satisfied by a public API -possibly a HTTP REST one-: rather than accessing stats using read-only methods, a client would have a set of methods for reading and writing the algos.

+1 to that algorithm API
