However, the time to first plot is too long. (~50sec)
50.087309 seconds (146.21 M allocations: 7.676 GiB, 3.69% gc time, 98.74% compilation time: 0% of which was recompilation)
I know it is due to compilation process. And actual rendering time is about 150ms.
What should I do to reduce the time to (first) plot??
But I would generally recommend a new user to just use 1.9 beta (Easy to upgrade if you use a Julia installer system juliaup or jill.py), or wait until the non-beta release to have the problem significantly alleviated. As 1.9 is in the third beta release, I do not think it is many week away.
