I am starting a project with some friends and I’d really like to be able to use Julia in a Jupyter notebook to share results and explanations. I am using VSCode on Windows Subsystem for Linux 1 (WSL1). The problem is that Julia syntax highlighting does not appear to work on the current build of VS Code and the Jupyter extension.
I found one solution, described here.
However, I was not able to reproduce what is described as the fix because:
When I go to
/home/USERNAME/.vscode-server/extensions/julialang.language-julia-1.1.40there is no
/usr/share/code/resources/app/extensions/juliadid not exist (there was no
/usr/shareso I had to create it. But I could only copy
syntaxes folderto it because the configuration file does not appear to exist (see previous bullet).
Only copying over
syntaxes folder does not appear to fix the problem (I still have no syntax highlighting).
Does anyone know where I can find
julia.configuration.json or how I can get it to appear?
