My searches for Julia-related information are returning results featuring the JuliaWiki.
Welcome to the definitive resource for the Julia programming language. Whether you are a newcomer or an experienced developer, this wiki aims to provide you with comprehensive information, tutorials, and practical tips to make your Julia programming journey as smooth as possible.
I’ve not looked at entries in detail, but I quickly found code like this:
(which is, curiously, valid but useless code) along with completely made-up links to non-existent sources. I suppose my concern is the amount of inaccurate and unhelpful information that’s there and featuring strongly in search results.
I think some kind of Julia Wiki is a good idea. But I don’t think this is what it should be, though. There should be less wrong code on the internet.
I try to maintain it, and mostly it seems to be another guy called “cormullion” you might be familiar with Which is doing a good job. It doesn’t seem advised to have two competing, but you can’t control stuff on the internet… At least it should consider linking to the wikibook (and vice versa?):
I took a look at:
It mentioned Genie (good) and only Morsel. There are some other major packages, and I think Morsel is old, and maybe not used much? And redundant with other (by now) better?
The wiki/Julia_Wiki:About page on that site has this as a contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. A Web search for the domain name shows that they target other programming languages, like OCaml and Elixir, too:
As long as we’re complaining about disreputable sites which cast Julia in a bad light, I wanted to draw attention (but not clicks!) to juliasos . com.
It’s entirely LLM-generated garbage with glaring errors, and it frequently shows up in the first page of search results. Something needs to be done about these parasites.
Getting these sites to shut down is high-effort, but contacting Google and Bing about deboosting them out of existence would solve most of the problem they pose and is easier. That would need to come from some official channel.
