Julia is a programming language for scientific programming that some of us (mostly Carl and Nick) have found useful.

Installing Julia

You can install Julia without needing root permissions on both Kibo and Hyak. The relevant files and checksums are at Download and unzip the tar file using:

tar zxvf julia-1.5.3-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Installing Packages

Julia comes with its own package manager called Pkg. You can invoke it by typing ] inside the Julia REPL. Then run 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
