Is there anyone here who uses backtrader?

Been playing around with this opensource tester and so far it works really well.

I played around with python back testing frameworks years ago, including backtrader, but in the end became frustrated with them, either too complex or didn't fit my requirements.

In the end I wrote my own. Felt like I was getting nowhere at the start but glad I did.
