I am switching from VSCode to Emacs+Revise.jl, and the only pain point I have not yet found a solution to is graphics in the REPL. In VSCode, images, plots, etc can be shown easily, but in the TUI REPL, even images are not displayed.
(A lot of newer terminals support both 24-bit colors and a specific protocol to show images, so this is just the REPL not invoking the necessary APIs. An old attempt is GitHub - m-j-w/TerminalGraphics.jl: True graphics for your Julia REPL , but it used libsixel which is old.)
Is there any native (non-Chromium) REPL frontends?
PS: I know the TUI REPL can open a canvas and draw on it, but this is not as uniform as having everything in the REPL itself. Also,
makie made macOS hang the last time I tried it.
PPS: Even if there is no alternative, what’s my most lightweight Chromium-based option? E.g., can a Julia REPL run directly as a local site, instead of firing up the whole VSCode?
