IJulia allows running Julia from within the web browser-based Jupyter IDE. In general (for all operating systems) it’s recommended to install and update Julia via the downloads from Julia website.
Install Jupyter: locate Jupyter binary location
- Linux, MacOS:
If Jupyter is not installed, just do
conda install jupyter
Install IJulia: start Julia with this environment variable (only necessary once)
Linux / MacOS:
JUPYTER=$(which jupyter) julia
Windows: “C:\miniconda3\scripts\jupyter.exe” is from
set JUPYTER=C:\miniconda3\scripts\jupyter.exe julia
Finally, type at Julia prompt:
using Pkg Pkg.add("IJulia")
This installs numerous packages via conda automatically.
.jl files are NOT runnable from IJulia.
Start the Notebook by EITHER:
- Terminal/Command Prompt:
using IJulia; notebook()
Create an interactive Julia
.ipynb Julia notebook by clicking New → Julia.
- IJulia install reference
