Save all objects from your session into a single compressed file

def save_env(path: str, objects: Optional[List[str]] = None, compress: str = 'gzip', protocol: int = -1):
Save the environment (list of objects) of Jupyter Notebook into a compressed file
path: path to the file
objects: names of global objects to be saved
compress: compression - default 'gzip', slower but better 'bz2', faster but much worse 'none'
protocol: pickle protocol version (-1 = latest)

A list of object names that have been loaded.
