New to Julia. I want to use Julia using only a simple text editor and the Julia 1.6.0 REPL. My initial programming goal is to replicate in Julia some code I’d written in Mathematica (Wolfram Language) to display a graph, with the additional feature to popup a description when a node is clicked or an edge is clicked to document its meaning (this works in Mathematica when I have the full system installed, but doesn’t work with a Mathematica reader).
The first step was to just create simple graphs able to pop up the node or edge description.
Creating the graph with LightGraphs was easy, as was calling on gplot from the GraphPlot package, but REPL output the plain text version of the graph, not a display or image of the graph.
Next, I found example code for the Lorenz Attractor in the documentation for the Plots package. I used that code as is to see what Julia REPL would do. It didn’t go well.
The result was an “infinite” sequence of
read: Connection reset by peer send: Broken pipe
When I was finally able to kill this process, the system indicated the generate GIFS were placed in a subdirectory deep under the /var directory on my MacOS system. These GIFS display correctly when opened under Safari.
I’ve attached a screenshot of REPL output.
The Lorenz Attractor code is
using Plots # define the Lorenz attractor Base.@kwdef mutable struct Lorenz dt::Float64 = 0.02 σ::Float64 = 10 ρ::Float64 = 28 β::Float64 = 8/3 x::Float64 = 1 y::Float64 = 1 z::Float64 = 1 end function step!(l::Lorenz) dx = l.σ * (l.y - l.x); l.x += l.dt * dx dy = l.x * (l.ρ - l.z) - l.y; l.y += l.dt * dy dz = l.x * l.y - l.β * l.z; l.z += l.dt * dz end attractor = Lorenz() # initialize a 3D plot with 1 empty series plt = plot3d( 1, xlim = (-30, 30), ylim = (-30, 30), zlim = (0, 60), title = "Lorenz Attractor", marker = 2, ) # build an animated gif by pushing new points to the plot, saving every 10th frame @gif for i=1:1500 step!(attractor) push!(plt, attractor.x, attractor.y, attractor.z) end every 10```
