Current Release (v0.3.5)

We provide three ways for you to run Julia:

Plotting capabilities are provided by external packages such as PyPlot.jl and Gadfly.jl. You can also do much more with Compose.jl, a vector graphics library for Julia. Look at the plotting instructions to install a plotting package. If you are using JuliaBox, all these plotting packages are pre-installed.

Please see platform specific instructions if you have trouble installing Julia.

If the provided download files do not work for you, please file an issue in the Julia project. It is strongly recommended that you download the v0.3.x binaries to try out Julia, unless you are working with code that was developed specifically for a previous release.

Julia + Juno IDE bundles

Julia works very well when used through the Terminal or Command Prompt interface, but if you’re looking for more IDE-like features (such as integrated code editing and evaluation) we recommend Juno.

See also the Juno Documentation for more information, or the discussion forum for questions and help. Juno is in active development, and for any IDE related issues, please file an issue in the Julia-LT project.

Windows 32-bit 64-bit
Mac OS X 10.7+ 64-bit
Linux 32-bit 64-bit

Usage is as simple as downloading the bundle, extracting it and double-clicking the Juno executable or app on Windows and OS X. On Linux, you’ll still need to install Julia itself.


Nightly builds

These are bleeding-edge binaries of the latest version of Julia under development, which you can use to get a preview of the latest work. However, because Julia is under heavy development, you may be unlucky and get a build with a serious bug, or one which breaks existing packages. Most users are advised to use the latest official release version of Julia, above.
