Julia is a high level, high performance, dynamic language for technical computing.
Julia is fast: It was designed from the beginning for high performance. Julia programs JIT compile to efficient native code for multiple systems and architectures via LLVM.
Julia is general: It uses multiple dispatch as a paradigm, making it easy to express object oriented and functional programming patterns. The standard library provides asynchronous I/O, process control, logging, profiling, a package manager, and more. In addition, there is a rich ecosystem of over 2400 packages and counting across a number of domains.
Julia is easy to use: It has high level syntax and is dynamically typed, providing accessibility for programmers of all backgrounds and experience levels, and making it feel like a scripting language.
Julia is optionally typed: It has an extensive, flexible, and extensible type system, and type declarations can be used to clarify and solidify programs. But type declarations are not required for general use.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
Tumbleweed users also need to run the following:
To install julia, simply use the following command:
