Juno works great now


I’ve been trying Juno on and off over the last year, and every time I gave up because I’d run into some error when trying to use the Julia features. I write code in Atom but just use the REPL to run it.

Today I tried Juno again, and everything worked including the console, workspace, and plots tabs. The autocomplete is smart. The Gallium debugger works, and the interface coupled with the workspace tab is a lot more informative than my previous attempts to use it in the REPL.

This is really valuable for convincing my friends who are used to MATLAB to try Julia.


Which version? juno-0.5.1?


Julia 0.5.1, the julia-client package in Atom is at 0.5.12


I’m still waiting for ^C to work on Macs…


Hm, interrupts work fine for me on Fedora (and Windows, which is kinda besides the point since it’s implemented differently anyways). How does ^C fail for you? Does it just kill Julia, or does it not interrupt Julia? Also, are you on Julia 0.5 or 0.6?


This is a long standing known issue, that is apparently caused by Julia’s handling of SIGINT. It may be fixed in 0.6.
