ziplane - run on a cloud with IB

I'm looking at the zipline tutorial: http://www.zipline-live.io/tutorial.

As far as I can tell, I need to get the IB app running at the same time. If I do this on google cloud, I think its possible to get the app by setting environment DISPLAY. But if I close the browser that shuts down the IB app. Is there a way to get it to work on the google cloud?

i'm just wondering if you found a solution to run zipline on the cloud with IB interface?

there is a good environment setup manual at https://dimon.ca/how-to-setup-ibc-and-tws-on-headless-ubuntu-in-10-minutes/

That I have used to set it up and it works fine

Thanks for the heads up!

That's cool. Thanks.

Here's some another library that could help;
