jill - Julia Installer 4 Linux - Light

GitHub Workflow Status DOI GitHub release (latest by date)

Julia 1.6.0 Julia 1.0.5 Julia 1.6.0-rc3

Julia light installer for Linux.


On Linux, the best way to install Julia is to use the Generic Linux Binaries. And while all Linux users love manually downloading, unpacking, and linking their software, this script does it for you.

Quick version - Install latest stable linux

Simply run

sudo bash -ci "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abelsiqueira/jill/master/jill.sh)"

Sudo is optional. If you prefer to not use it, make sure to add

$HOME/.local/bin
to your
PATH
.

More options - Download jill.sh

Either download the jill.sh script, e.g.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abelsiqueira/jill/master/jill.sh

or

curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abelsiqueira/jill/master/jill.sh > jill.sh

or clone the full repo (for instance, if you had SSL issues as in #32):

git clone https://github.com/abelsiqueira/jill

You can use the script via

bash jill.sh
or make it executable using
chmod a+x jill.sh
. We'll use the former version here.

Usage:

bash jill.sh [options]

If no options are given, this will install the latest stable Julia. The .tar.gz and unpacked folder will be kept on the environment variable

JULIA_DOWNLOAD
, and the
julia
executable will be linked in
JULIA_INSTALL
.

By default, we use

  • JULIA_DOWNLOAD=/opt/julias
    and
    JULIA_INSTALL=/usr/local/bin
    if you have root permission (e.g. called with
    sudo
    ).
  • JULIA_DOWNLOAD=$HOME/packages/julias
    and
    JULIA_INSTALL=$HOME/.local/bin
    otherwise.

The following options are avaiable:

  • -h, --help
    : Show a help.
  • --lts
    : Install the Long Term Support version (Currently 1.0.5).
  • --rc
    : Install the latest release candidate (uses
    jq
    to query the versions from julialang.org).
  • -u OLD, --upgrade OLD
    : Copy the environment from OLD version.
  • -v VER, --version VER
    : Install julia version VER. Valid examples: 1.5.4, 1.5-latest, 1.5.0-rc1.
  • -y, --yes, --no-confirm
    : Skip confirmation.
