It takes VS Code about 10 seconds to go from me clicking on “Julia: Start REPL” to the REPL being up and running. In comparison, starting Julia in a terminal takes only one second.
Where does this difference come from? Is there a way to speed up the VS Code REPL start-up, perhaps by disabling some rarely used features? For example, it seems that the VS Code REPL loads Revise.jl, which I’m not using at the moment. Can I disable Revise in return for faster start-up times?
