Local Visual Studio Guide

Hello,
Amother newbie question. I see the guide recommending trying out in the local visual studio, but I don't see the actual steps.

Is there a lib that I can included so at least I can compile locally? Is there a setup that includes some sample data that I can run locally to verify the logic is correct before doing a back test in the cloud?

Thanks!

Update Backtest








Click the 'Lean' button at the top of the menu bar of this page, then download the Lean engine from github. Unzip it and there is a readme file.

Great. Thanks TZ.

Kevin, there's also a tutorial on how to get that engine installed and running with example data.

1.) Go to the Backtester
2.) Click the "Help" button on the left
3.) Navigate to Tutorials --> Getting Started

That page will show you step by step how to run a job on your computer. It also comes with sample data.

Note that the tutorial says that you need to have QuantConnect.Lean.Engine selected as the start up project. This is incorrect. You need to have the QuantConnect.Lean.Launcher selected as the start up for it to work.

Good luck :-)
