Thanks for getting back to me. My 'use case' is that I have some written up a couple of pipeline factors, some of which can take a long time to run. It would save a considerable amount of time, personal and computer, if I could store the factor for later, more in-depth analysis, combining them in different ways, backtesting them in a portfolio simulation, regime anaylsis., etc.
Yes, I would like to store the output for importation into another notebook all in the research environment. Would it be feasible to download all of the pipeline factors in an encrypted file that only Quantopian could read, in order to protect your data? Then one would upload the workspace back up to Quantopian. The ideal would be that you would then be at the point in the research process where you have completed running 'run_pipeline_chunks()', 'get_asset_pricing()', and set your indices.
I am a newbie at python although I do have reasonable quant chops. If you want you can check out my bonafides on Linkedin. I do have one quick question. I haven't been able to figure to get from pipeline to backtester yet? And where do I find the backtest number? Thanks again Dan.
