I’m currently trying to make the switch from Matlab to Julia 1.5.3. I am currently working with Atom/Juno (Atom 1.54.0, uber-juno 0.3.0) because of it’s similarity to the the Matlab editor. While I like many things in Julia, I’m having a really hard time debugging my code. Coming from Matlab, I am used to set breakpoints to see the definition of variables inside loops, functions etc. quickly.

In Juno, evaluating steps in the debugger takes AGES (I am speaking of minutes!) unless the function is very simple. I’ve been searching for solutions for a quite long time now and my current understanding is that this is to be expected(?) I would be grateful for a brief reply from an expert. Are there any good alternatives to Atom/Juno?

Thanks!
