I’m having difficulty using julia-repl to run a remote REPL with tramp in emacs. I like julia-repl better than ESS because it uses the emacs term which allows use of the package manager, etc. in the REPL. However, it seems that julia-repl uses the emacs function make-term which uses start-process (instead of start-file-process) which, it seems, doesn’t allow one to change the default-directory variable. Has anyone managed to solve this?
I don’t see an easy way to change julia-repl to fix this. I think the emacs builtin file term.el would have to change.
