Some of us have been working on getting Julia into Raspbian with the amazing folks over at Rapberry Pi. The main focus has been to use as many system libs as possible, a system and newer LLVM, and a few other small things.
Here’s a package that has been put together, which should be ready to go, and it would be great if people can try it out. I have been using it over the weekend and it feels solid. Of course, there may be Julia arm bugs that you may find, and it may be good to know.
This should work on all the Pis, but Pi3 is recommended. Also, note that it will use ATLAS and not OpenBLAS, since the one that is currently in Raspbian is buggy. We are woking on getting it updated.
Jupyter notebooks should work too, but you have to pip install Jupyter, set the JUPYTER environment variable and then Pkg.build(“IJulia”). Plotting works as well, but compilation times are a bit slow.
There are Pi specific packages in the JuliaBerry github org should you want to try those out. Those should be registered shortly.
