I agree, Julia is a increasingly demanded skill on Wall St. and it's gaining a lot of popularity in other domains too. Astrophysics, computational biologists, etc.
Great choice, imo.
I completely agree, Julia is growing exponentially
if you'd like to see julia in replit, share the url with more people to vote!
I like julia
This is Julia's link, you can comment or vote :) https://replit.canny.io/languages-requests/p/julia
@Haya: I added a comment, but how do I vote?
@Glenn Fulford: You click on the up vote arrow next to the language name, but I voted for you :)
Out of the box Julia has a very good Read-Eval-Print-Loop, which both completes functions and types, as well as completion based on history of previous statements. It integrates well with the shell and has an excellent online help system.
By default it comes with several REPL modes: julia>, shell> and help>. The Julia REPL is also extensible and anyone can add new REPL modes and make them available to others via packages, this are the ones that I have used (Julia is also the only language that has this feature by default, that I'm aware of):
* C++ >: https://github.com/Keno/Cxx.jl
* debug >: https://github.com/Keno/Gallium.jl
* R>: https://github.com/JuliaInterop/RCall.jl
* lisp>: https://github.com/swadey/LispREPL.jl
I can't wait to see which new REPL modes get implemented in the future, the potential is limitless.
Finally there is the excellent OhMyREPL.jl package that adds many enhancements to the standard REPL (many of these are merged back into main Julia!):
Being able to have all this, or at least some part of it, over here at repl.it, would be awesome.

Julia language is fast and easy to read, great for doing mathematics.
Julia is the best example of major improveement about programation language
@Eingel RL: Im agree with this guy
I think Julia is the key of the future, I really love it.
Julia is killing it here on Replit!
@Haya: 90 votes and counting, how much more are needed?
@rahul lakhanpal: hahaah 1000,000 !
No seriously, we're working on a bigger project which will allow you to bring Julia to Replit, it's going to be on you, not on us. We'll be open sourcing part of Replit technology soon, it'll allow you to update and upload languages and libraries to Replit. Stay tuned !
@Haya: Ok :)
@Haya: wow this is amazing, I can't wait to be able to use Julia in REPL.it! Is any of this in GitHub https://github.com/replit ? I don't see a post on your blog but this is great news. :)
@Ismael Venegas Castelló: It's not a small project for Repl.it, we're working on it! we're very excited about this project and everyone here is! people are submitting github pull requests even though we have not launched the project yet. Hopefully we'll have something in the next three months. you'll get notified, and stay tuned ;)
This would be a nice tool to explore and teach with.
I'd love to have Julia in replit! I'm going to use it for an introductory course on programming.
Need Julia REPL too! Its unlike any other REPL users have ever seen, replit got some work to do :-D
Fast and easy syntax, great for implementing mathematics.
