Apache Zeppelin and Julia

Hi,

I recently came across Apache Zeppelin, which is somewhat similar to Jupyter (and actually supports Jupyter / IPython notebooks), but more focussed on big data and multi-user capabilities. Especially the latter makes it interesting for large companies providing data analytics platforms to their business departments.

Julia is not (yet?) an officially supported language, but it is possible to use Julia in Zeppelin notebooks via the existing Jupyter interpreter and IJulia.

Below is a Docker image as a POC:

Long-term it would be good to have a first-class Julia integration in Zeppelin. This should in principle be possible by creating a Community Managed Interpreter:

Maybe someone with Java knowledge (which I unfortunately do not have) is interested to take a look at it?

Best Regards
Benjamin
