We are trying out Julia for a course at my Uni, and many of the students are finding installing Julia and IJulia on their personal machines a challenge. A great solution would be if these were available through Sage Math Cloud. I know that Julia is, and I believe IPython is, too. Is IJulia available? Is there a quick walkthrough on how to access it through SageMathCloud out there anywhere?

I think Julia cold have a great future - from my very brief experiments, it looks to have a lot to offer. Have you tried setting up a local server as described here: ?

Julia is now fully supported on SageMathCloud at

For example, in a SageMathCloud project, input the terminal command

git clone

and get started on David P Sanders's tutorial "Hands-on Julia".

EDIT 2015-06

Julia is now easy to use on SageMathCloud, and kept up-to-date.

[Original answer, 2014-11:

IJulia is not trivial available on SageMathCloud yet, but will be soon.

You can use Julia via Sage Worksheets by putting %julia at the top of a cell or by putting "%default_mode julia" somwhere to switch everything to use Julia. ]

Have a look at JuliaBox. They have a forum where you can ask for an invite code (and, hopefully, soon you won't need one).
