Julia is a programming language for scientific programming that some of us (mostly Carl and Nick) have found useful.
You can install Julia without needing root permissions on both Kibo and Hyak. The relevant files and checksums are at julialang.org. Download and unzip the tar file using:
wget https://julialang-s3.julialang.org/bin/linux/x64/1.5/julia-1.5.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz tar zxvf julia-1.5.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
Then add julia to your path. Further (and probably more up-to-date) instructions for setting up Julia on Linux are here: https://julialang.org/downloads/platform/#linux_and_freebsd
Julia comes with its own package manager called Pkg. You can invoke it by typing
] inside the Julia REPL.
add Package to install.
Pluto is a computational notebook environment for Julia.
Here is how to run it on Kibo. First choose a PORT you are going to use and log into Kibo:
ssh -L localhost:PORT:localhost:PORT kibo
Start Julia and run
using Pluto Pluto.run(port=PORT)
