chakravala That tiling window looks awsome and I bet the speed is lightning fast.
For my personal preference, I can never get myself proficient enough in VIM, and I still like an IDE that can do intellisense (auto-completion, function parameter prompt, documentation lookup, jump to definition/references, refractoring, and even debugging though I know Juno cannot do that properly today either - it’s a Julia feature to be desired not a Juno one).
I just discovered that Visual Studio Code, with the Julia add-in, seems to do a better job much faster. The basic interface is similar to Juno but all the funcitons work well and speedy. And though it’s Microsoft stuff, it’s actually cross platform.
I will try it out more and if anybody else is interested, here’s the download link.
Visual Studio Code: https://code.visualstudio.com/
Julia plugin (for now use the newest Beta as it fixed an important issue; in the future can just install from inside VS Code like installing plugins in Atom): https://github.com/JuliaEditorSupport/julia-vscode/releases/ (just download the vsix file, and in VS Code do: View, Extensions, …, Install from VSIX).
Here’s one screen shot:
There are still a couple things I’d like to see improved:
- Ability to move the console window to the right, or just pop it out;
- One button click to run the whole script (you can use a plugin called Code Runner - that’s the “run” button on the topright corner of the screenshot, but that will run the code as new everytime, so the compilation overhead is always there; I just use “include(“myscript.jl”)” in the terminal window myself;
- And yes, debugging from within VS Code! This is what Julia has to provide first though.
Overall I am pretty happy with VS Code.
