Julia 0.7 juno's julia console very slow


I just migrated to julia 0.7. Deleted all my atom packages (removed ~/.atom) and installed juno again from the atom package manager.

Now I get a very slow julia console in atom/juno: I have to wait a few seconds after I press any key for the character to appear on the julia console. This on linux x64. Looking at the CPU usage on my machine, it is very low so this is not the problem.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix?

Thank you


Does this happen every time you start up, or just the first time? The first time a bunch of stuff needs to get precompiled etc so I’m not surprised it takes a while. But mine is pretty snappy (on a Mac with Julia 1.0)


Try enabling the fallback renderer in julia-clients console settings, that should massively help with performance.


Thank you. With the fallback renderer, the console is usable again.
