Julia on Google Colab: Free GPU-Accelerated Shareable Notebooks

This worked for me. Thanks, that’s very nice.

Probably best to put our acts together in this product feature request.


Now I just get error

  File "<ipython-input-1-93593d386988>", line 1
    using Pkg
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I’m trying this out, installing Julia seems to work fine and from the install notebook I see e.g.


But I can’t get a second notebook started “in this same runtime” such that it sees the julia-1.2 kernel. I’ve tried the hyperlink suggestion from above which doesn’t work (maybe I got the URL wrong?) and I’ve tried uploading into the install session (but then how do I load the new notebook?). In all cases it gives me the Unrecognized runtime "julia-1.2"; defaulting to "python3" error. Any tips?


I have elaborately written about my issue in this link https://stackoverflow.com/questions/58270424/julia-in-google-colab. I hope some help will come my way?

When you insert a hyperlink, is there a preceding command like - !wget or something else - to be able to run the script in the link?
