Dear Julia Computing,
I find it very uncomfortable to install JuliaPro on a machine that does not have a GUI (headless). A typical scenario is an Ubuntu instance in the cloud (AWS, Azure) having only a terminal (SSH) connection available.
JuliaPro requires registrations and provides download links. Unfortunately, those links do not work with
wget. Trying to download the file and copying the final download link does not work neither.
Hence, currently the only workaround for getting JuliaPro in headless environment running is to download JuliaPro installer (1GB) to my local machine and then upload it back to a virtual server in the cloud.
This problem could be easily solved if Julia Computing could provide links that are short-lived but can be pasted to
wget and just work. Please note that installation is the first experience any newcomer has with Julia so I believe it should be just more friendly…
There are also JuliaPro AMIs for AWS (https://juliacomputing.com/products/ami/juliapro-amis.html) but they do not have the latest JuliaPro version. On the other hans maybe not many people use this…
