What's your "standard" Julia project toolkit?

I’ve started a new job a couple months ago and have been using Julia recently for a project. I’m interested to learn what packages people always turn to/rely on for their general, day-to-day work. I want to expand my knowledge of the Julia ecosystem and hopefully add some new tools to improve my workflow.


Caveat: still a noob. But I always load Revise and OhMyREPL on my REPL sessions (automatically via the startup.jl file). The most common packages I use are Plots, DataFrames, and Unitful.

Maybe PkgTemplates.jl is worth a look. It provides a good starting environment for a new module with tests and documentation configured. Revise.jl is very common, I personally also like ProtoStructs.jl. And I also felt that I should have learned the dev command from the package manager much earlier to keep my own packages in a commonplace.

Anyway, it really depends on your specific field.
