Installing IJulia with Julia1.0 behind corporate firewall

Hi all,

I am trying to install IJulia at work, but it fails building MbedTLS with this error:

│ [18:12:51] If you’d like to turn off curl’s verification of the certificate, use

the problem seems to be downloading from github being behind a firewall,

how can I tell julia not to check for the ssl certificate, for instance I need to give this to conda before installing jupyterlab

conda config --set ssl_verify false

thanks,
andrea

I think I found how to install IJulia from windows with julia1.0:

go to the conda installation in your home directory, for me was .julia\packages\Conda\m7vem\deps\usr\Scripts

from there run
.\conda.exe install -c conda-forge jupyter

similarly for PyPlot, run
.\conda.exe install -c conda-forge matplotlib
