    Hello, this is the Gitter channel for the UCI Data Science Initiative. My name is Chris Rackauckas and I will be your instructor. Please feel free to ask questions about installing Julia/packages/IDEs, finding help in the community, or generally questions about using Julia. Reminder, we will have an install session at 8AM tomorrow.

    Hi I am here

    After 5 minutes, Julia is still precompiling Gadfly. Is it normal?

    @MrJerryTAO_twitter
    I think so. It took me a seminar to complete the installation.

    For OS X users who installed Julia via dmg:
    Open up a Terminal window
    and find the path to Julia
    ls /Applications/Julia*/Contents/Resources/julia/bin/julia
    then open .bash_profile
    and append the following:
    Where I put in the path for my Julia installation (should be similar if we got the same version)
    you'll have to restart the terminal to update the path

    Gadfly took more than 5 min to pre-compile for me.

    Cloning from Github was failing for me when I ran Pkg.add() The standard git protocol was being blocked - I think because I am connected to UCI's guest network.

    Anyone get error: InitError: Failed to pyimport("matplotlib"): PyPlot will not work until you have a functioning matplotlib module.

    Can you discuss performance vs R? If we have existing R code, can we interop with R until we can get code converted over (if performance is superior)?

    add correct Julia path (Mac) just find the correct path and create a link

    @erik-hansen
    Workaround: type the following into a command line (not julia terminal) to use https instead of git protocol
    git config --global url.https://.insteadOf git://

    sudo ln -s /Applications/Julia-x.x.x.app/Contents/Resources/julia/bin/julia /usr/local/bin/julia

    sudo ln -s /Applications/Julia-0.4.5.app/Contents/Resources/julia/bin/julia /usr/local/bin/julia

    For matplotlib you may need to get the newest version: http://matplotlib.org/users/installing.html

    I'm getting a failure to precompile pyplot even though it is installed with Pkg.add

    try closing Atom
    and opening back up
    surprisingly, that fixed my issues

    If you are using ipython/Anaconda and receive an error when loading packages (i.e. Git hub not found), run: git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git:// in a terminal window

    @sjjbryant
    Closing Atom did not allow Pyplot to precompile

    @fliptanedo
    Is there a shortcut to restart the Julia kernel within Atom?
    Christopher Rackauckas
    @ChrisRackauckas
    @fliptanedo ctrl+j ctrl+k

    @ChrisRackauckas Thanks!

    When there's a large output in Atom, is there a way to get the console to automatically scroll to the bottom?

    e.g. if I run x = rand(100), then I get a list of random numbers. If I start typing again, though, I can't see what I'm typing because the console hasn't automatically scrolled down. (Am I just missing something, or is this a 'feature'?)

    @ChrisRackauckas
    The console should automatically scroll with the text if you're at the bottom of the console.
