Julia available in Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi

3 May 2017 | Viral B. Shah, Avik Sengupta, Simon Byrne

Recently, Julia was accepted into the Raspbian distribution for the Raspberry Pi. If you are running the latest Raspbian, all you need to do is apt-get install julia. Most of the common packages can be installed with Pkg, and Jupyter can be installed using the usual IJulia.jl instructions.

While Julia works on all the Pi variants, we recommend using the Pi 3.

The scripts to create the julia package for Raspbian are in the julia-raspbian repo in the JuliaBerry organization on GitHub.

We invite all our readers to submit blog posts here showing example Jupyter notebooks, JuliaBerry packages for the Raspberry Pi hardware, or other ARM Julia fun and games.
