I’m new to Julia and not what I would call an advanced programmer. I’m an engineer and I and know some languages including C and Python. I found Julia and find it very interesting.
I’d like to explain my problem of getting into Julia with an example: I often use programming to deal with data from measurements. I have large sets of various data, mostly in form of excel sheets or csv. To analyse these data I most often use Python. To do this, I use Spyder, write the necessary code (e.g. load exel data, perform some math-magic, draw some plots and spit out some values). I then have finished “scripts” i can always execute when i have new data to be analysed, or change/add functionality of the code.
I now found julia very promising, because it seems to have an even easier way to work with vectors, arrays or complex numbers.
But I cant seem to find an IDE that I can write my code and execute it, change a line, execute again …
I found the Julia console, which is not very applicable for my use case. Also stuff like Jupiter notebooks and alike seems like a terrible solution for my use case (or i just dont understand how to employ that). I installed JuliaPRO/Atom, which looks somewhat similar to Sypder, but there is no way of simply writing code in a file, press a Run button and have the code executed and your results in the console.
Can you maybe point me to a programming environment that is similar to Spyder for Python?
