Other Atom packages for Julia? Uber Juno, Julia IDE, Jude


#1

I’ve been using VS Code for several weeks but today I wanted to try Atom again and found it has several packages for Julia.

Uber-juno: Install de Juno IDE.
Julia client: Julia Evaluation.
Language-julia: Julia language support for atom. (also included with Uber-juno).
Julia-ide: IDE for Julia.
Linter-julia: support for Atom using linter package.
Atom-julia-run: Run a Julia source file.
Hydrogen: All power of jupyter on Atom. Run code interactively, inspect data.
Jude: Julia development extensions.

Have you used any of them apart from Uber-Juno?
Which one do you suggest: fast, integrated plots, table editor, debugger…?

PD: I’m speaking about Atom’s extensions to create a GUI to use Julia. Not to be confused with Julia’s packages.

There are only two alternatives in your list:

  1. Juno, consisting of
    • Uber-juno: Install de Juno IDE.
    • Julia client: Julia Evaluation.
    • Language-julia: Julia language support for atom. (also included with Uber-juno).
  2. Hydrogen, consisting of
    • Hydrogen: All power of jupyter on Atom. Run code interactively, inspect data.
    • Language-julia: Julia language support for atom. (also included with Uber-juno).

julia-ide and jude are unmaintained, linter-julia probably is as well, and atom-julia-run won’t give you and GUI.

Which one do you suggest: fast, integrated plots, table editor, debugger…?

Juno, obviously :smiley:
No package will give you all of those points, I think, but Juno does have integrated plots and will have a debugger as soon as someone writes one working on Julia 1.0. We’ll also have a table editor once I find some time to finish

Also take a look at http://junolab.org/ – the interactive screenshot should give a fairly complete feature overview, I think.
