Charts when running in my machine (not in the cloud)

Hi, I'm new on this amazing platform and i'm doing my first runs. The final goal will be to run strategy in the Quant Connect cloud platform but in the meantime I want to code and test in my local machine, as I have my development environment ready. My question is (and sorry if the answer is somewhere but I looked for it and I could find it) can I get similar charting tools in the download from github lean solution as the ones I get when I run backtest on the cloud platform? What do I have to do to get that? I just want to see some basics and not get all the power but something. Plot method in my algorithm doesn't fail but looks like I need to use that charts somewhere. 

Any help? Thanks a lot in advance.

Update Backtest








In order to have charts locally, we need to  modify one key in the configuration file (config.json): "environment" from "backtesting" to "backtesting-desktop" or "live-desktop" (when we are using a live data stream).
Additionaly, we need to provide our user id and API token. For that, please edit the "job-user-id" and "api-access-token" with information available at your account page.

With these settings, Lean will launch a UX with an embeded browser that shows all the charts we would get at QC.com.
