Installing Julia on a Cluster

If you are installing Julia on a remote cluster, such as those available at many labs or universities, and Julia is not already available by default or through a software module system, then you can still easily install your own local version of Julia.

To install Julia locally on your account, follow these basic steps (details may vary slightly depending on your setup):

  1. Download a binary version of Julia here On a remote Unix or Linux cluster, you can use the program "wget" to download files.
  2. Use the tar program to uncompress the .tar.gz file you have downloaded.
  3. Create a soft link somewhere in your PATH (such as in the bin/ subfolder of your home folder, which you might need to create) pointing to the file "bin/julia" inside of the uncompressed Julia folder you just created.

For example, the set of commands might look like this (where these commands are assumed to be executed in your home directory):

$ cd
$ mkdir -p bin
$ wget https://julialang-s3.julialang.org/bin/linux/x64/1.4/julia-1.4.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
$ tar xvzf julia-1.4.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
$ ln -s julia-1.4.1/bin/julia  bin/julia
