Introducing the Eclipse Julia plugin – JuliaDT

06 Feb 2016 | Taimur el-Halawani

JuliaDT is an alpha release of an Eclipse-based IDE for Julia. Current trends in Big Data and Data Science make Julia a natural choice when tackling the latest business challenges. The plugin aims to make Julia’s strengths more readily accessible to an expanding community of developers.

The implementation is based on Eclipse DLTK. The design focuses on making Julia available in an enterprise setting, whilst ensuring that Julia-specific features remain handy and intuitive to use.

The IDE is work in progress. The roadmap includes extending existing features including outline and navigation as well as REPL, Plotting and Debugger support. The environment is downloadable as a plugin.
