Can I upload a .Net assembly?

I have some classes I'd like to make use of in an assembly. Can I upload this?

I don't think you can currently do this. It's possible to control what references an assembly is allowed to make however (AFAIK) so I don't rule out they could add a similar thing. However, I would expect assemblies that have not been built with QuantConnect in mind to e.g. have references to System.IO namespace (which is blacklisted on QC). Don't click link, QC automatically makes a link from it...

There are two workarounds at the moment:

1) Upload source code, this can work if the source is reasonably small. It quickly gets out of hand with larger libraries however.

2) Ask QC to whitelist your library of choice - if this is a generally useful open source library your chances are pretty good.

Thank you. It would be handy if QC allowed everyone access (by putting them in the GAC) to commonly used third party libraries such as MathDotNet, Accord.Net and AForge, Unity and TA-Lib.

In case you haven't seen it, the list of already whitelisted libraries can be found here:

Brilliant. That has made my day. Thanks!
