Preferred Julia frontends

Hi all!

What frontends do you provide for your Julia users?

Currently, we instruct users to use IJulia in a Jupyter notebook. I know there are some more Julia-oriented frontends (like Pluto), and I was wondering if anyone deployed them at their site.

I’ve never heard of Pluto before, but that looks interesting indeed.

We (OSC) just use Julia kernels in Jupyter lab/notebook as you do, but will likely look at Pluto and/or others now that you mention it.


We just deployed a julia focused OOD app at our site. It supports Pluto.jl, Jupyter Lab/Notebook, and code-server. The user can select their desired frontend and the OOD app will install any required julia packages in their home directory.

You can find our code here NMSU_HPC / ood_bc_julia · GitLab. We are still working out some bugs here and there but this should be enough to get started. For example code-server versions newer then 4.13 don’t work do to some socket / proxy changes.

Thanks for this (and all the other apps from NMSU!)
