    Thats for an entry point, you can search `Base.@main` to see a little summary of it. Later it will be able to be callable with `juliax` and `juliac` i.e. `~juliax test.jl` in shell.

    DynamicalSystems looks like a heavy project. I don't think you can do much more on your own. There have been recent features in 1.10 that lets you just use the portion you need (just a weak dependency), and there is precompiletools.jl but these are on your side.

    You can also look into https://github.com/dmolina/DaemonMode.jl for running a Julia process in the background and do your stuff in the shell without startup time until the standalone binaries are there.

    >a nd you can't quickly run a script

    What is wrong with the following to run a script?

    $ julia myscript.jl

    If you have specific needs that demand, after hitting return, the few seconds of delay for the vast majority of scripts is an issue, you can pre-compile it ahead of time or simply use something like https://github.com/dmolina/DaemonMode.jl

    Julia has issues as with all languages but "not being able to quickly run a script" is by far one of the easiest to work around.

    > and you can't quickly run a script or REPL for development.

    REPL- I'm not sure what you are getting at here. Of course you can - that's how many of use it.

    > And now Julia has competition from Mojo.

    ...maybe. The code-samples we've seen from Mojo look very similar to Python, obviously. And that is specifically why a lot of poeple love Julia.

    The problems people are more and more interested in (machine learning, etc) are at their base mathematical problems. The code should look as close to that math as possible. Spamming np.linalg, sp.sparse, and so forth over and over again is just ugly, and the entire Python workflow overly encourages object oriented design for concepts that are mathematically functions. And, well, should be functions.

    Mojo may make Python faster, but even with Mojo, Python will always be a high level wrapper around C and C++.

    > If I were to use e.g. Rust with polars, load time would be virtually none.

    Because you're compiling...

    And if you need to do the same in Julia, you should also pre-compile or some other method like https://github.com/dmolina/DaemonMode.jl (their demo shows loading a database, with subsequent loads after the first one taking roughly ~0.2% of the first)

    https://github.com/dmolina/DaemonMode.jl can possibly help in the future. Leaving it here so that people know this is planned.

    If you strongly prefer to run scripts though, then you can use the package https://github.com/dmolina/DaemonMode.jl in order to re-use a Julia session between multiple scripts, saving you recompilation time.
