installation on linux without sudo/root?

I was wondering if it was possible to install julia on a linux server without sudo or root? For python it is possible by miniconda. Is there any similar solution for julia?

Yes, just untar the tarball in your home directory.


When you download julia from you can place it wherever you want and run it in-place.

See my post here for some options for how to set it up.


I define an alias in my .bashrc pointing at Julia, eg:

alias ju="/home/chriselrod/Documents/languages/julia/usr/bin/julia -O3"

so I can launch it from the command line with ju. You may prefer writing out the entire name julia.

Atom, VS Code, and Emacs let you specify the path to the Julia binary.
IJulia will know the path once you install the kernel.
