I am trying to use the Julia REPL to create some Julia scripts. My programming background is Matlab and a little bit of Python and C/C++.
However, I am a little bit unsure, what the best workflow is for creating Julia scripts.
According to the documentation on workflow the best way is to create a module, where all the functions are defined and then include on the REPL a file like myscript.jl, which in turn imports the module.
On the REPL I can then run myscript multiple times and change things, until I arrive at the final script.
Another workflow outside of the REPL I have seen, is IJulia Notebook, which I do not really like.
Ideally I am looking for a workflow like Python or Matlab:
I have my working folder, can put several functions in one file/several files and directly call them from the REPL, without having to include them. Of course, the ability to make a module is great and a big advantage especially over matlab, but it feels for me like too much overhead, if I just want to make some quick calculations / plot some data in a script.
Is there any way to achieve a more Matlab/Python REPL feeling?
What kind of workflow do you use, when you just want to use the new model, which just has the right tool you needed all along?
