JuliaPro 6.0.1 with Jupyter and RISE?

#1

I have installed JuliaPro 6.0.1, which is generally pretty great.

However, when I ran the installed Jupyter notebook, I noticed that I didn’t seem to have acesss to RISE (https://github.com/damianavila/RISE)

Two things:

  • I think RISE is sufficiently useful that it should be added to the JuliaPro build
  • Second, I was unable to install RISE following the instructions in https://github.com/damianavila/RISE In particular, it says to run from the REPL:
using Conda
Conda.add_channel("damianavila82")
Conda.add("rise")

This gets through most of the installation, but then dies and says

ERROR conda.core.link:_execute_actions(337): An error occurred while installing package 'damianavila82::rise-5.1.0-py27_0'.
CondaError: Cannot link a source that does not exist. C:\appsl\JuliaPro-0.6.0.1\pkgs-0.6.0.1\v0.6\Conda\deps\usr\pkgs\rise-5.1.0-py27_0\Scripts\.rise-post-link-script.py
Running `conda clean --packages` may resolve your problem.

… cutting off a bunch of garbage at that point.

You will notice that one of the statements says conda clean --packages may resolve your problem, but I am not sure how to do this with Conda.jl as it isn’t really using the normal conda setup.

An update: right now this is almost certainly a bug which is being looked at: https://github.com/damianavila/RISE/issues/316#issuecomment-343284617

But my more general comment stands: it would be nice for JuliaPro to preinstall RISE.
