Setting up Jupyter Notebook for Perl5

October 25, 2018

I want to start using Perl5 to replace some of my day to day Python tasks, but I don’t want to have to give up Jupyter notebooks! Fortunatly, someone has solved this already.

The following instructions are for Ubuntu 16.04

  1. Install rabbitMQ: sudo apt install libzmq3-dev
  2. Install Jupyter: sudo python3 -m pip install jupyter
  3. Install iperl: cpanm Devel::IPerl

You should now be able to start a jupyter-notebook and select iperl as the kernel!
