Julia and JuMP Tutorial for JuMP-dev III

This page includes the install and use instructions for the Julia and JuMP tutorials at JuMP-dev III. These are the recommended and supported instructions for the course as they are simple, safe and self-contained.

Install Julia

To get started, you first need to install Julia.

Windows 7 Users: as instructed on the downloads page, you will need to install at least version 3.0 of the Windows Management Framework.

Download the materials

To get the tutorial materials download this zip file and uncompress it to a folder of your choice. This will create a sub-folder JuMP-dev-2019-tutorial with all the materials.

Open Julia

Now open Julia by clicking on the Julia icon you installed. Once open, you should be faced with the Julia REPL (Julia's interactive command prompt) that looks like this:

Julia REPL

Install Jupyter

Now we need to install Jupyter. In the Julia REPL, run the following commands (this may take a little bit of time):

import Pkg
ENV["JUPYTER"]=""
Pkg.add("Conda")
Pkg.add("IJulia")
import Conda
Conda.add("jupyter")

Open a Jupyter notebook

Okay, last step, let's launch a Jupyter notebook! Open a Julia REPL and then run:

using IJulia
IJulia.notebook()

If all goes well, a browser window will open that looks like this:

jupyer_notebook

You can then navigate to the location of where you uncompressed the JuMP-dev-2019-tutorial folder and you should see something like this: jupyer_notebook

To get started on the tutorials, click on the first notebook entitled Introduction to Julia-JuMP.ipynb.

Using the Default Tutorial Packages

The files Project.toml and Manifest.toml contain the information about versions of the default tutorial packages that we know work well. These packages can be activated by running the following code in any Jupyter notebook in the JuMP-dev-2019-tutorial folder:

import Pkg
Pkg.activate(@__DIR__)
Pkg.instantiate()

You will see this as the first code cell in all example notebooks and you should add it to all the notebooks you create.

Updating Course Files and Packages

To get the latest version of this repository (files and safe versions of packages) simply re-download this zip file, which always contains the latest versions.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
