JuliaBerry

Julia for the Raspberry Pi.

JuliaBerry is an organisation that brings together various resources for using the Julia language for the Raspberry Pi.

Installing Julia

The easiest way to install Julia is by downloading the 32-bit (ARMv7-a hard float) prebuilt binary from the JuliaLang website.

An older version of Julia (0.6) is also available via apt in Raspbian, we hope to update this to the latest version in the near future.

Compiling Julia

Instructions can be found over here

IJulia notebook

Jupyter will need to be installed manually, as the automatic Conda installer does not work on the ARM architecture. Generally, running

sudo apt install libzmq3-dev
sudo pip3 install jupyter

at the shell should work. Then it should be sufficient to do

Pkg.add("IJulia")

at the Julia REPL.

Packages

The JuliaBerry org provides several Raspberry Pi-specific packages:
