I didn’t find a Place_to_Praise_Julia category, so I’ll post here.
I had a situation today in which an algorithm was supplied in the form of C snippets, and having a vague memory that one could compile C++ functions from a Julia REPL, I searched and found Cxx.jl. I tried the Cxx example, then a little copyy/paste with the snippets and whammo!, instant answers at the REPL! So much fun!
Here’s a big Thank You to the authors and contributors of Cxx.jl and all of Julia.
