ANN: Julia Installer 4 Linux - Light


#1

I’ve created JILL, a script to install the latest stable Julia on Linux.

My objective was to provide a quick way to install Julia without depending on the distribution, in the way that I use the Julia binaries: (download, unpack, link to /usr/local/bin).

I welcome opinions and contributions from other Linux users.

Cool. You probably want to build a system-specific image as well, see point #7 in http://www.stochasticlifestyle.com/7-julia-gotchas-handle/.


#3

Not anymore.


#4

A non-sudo version would be great :slight_smile:


#5

Can you elaborate why that is?


#6

#7

Cool! So has this been used to create the current 0.6.1 distribution?


#8

no, nightly only


#9

A non-sudo version is up now. It requires creating a folder beforehand and adding it to PATH.
