Building from source

Download the source code, rather than the binaries, if you intend to contribute to the development of Julia itself, or if no Julia binaries are provided for your operating system or particular computer architecture. The Julia source code can be found on GitHub at https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia.git. Compiling the source code will get you the latest Julia version, not the stable version (if you want the latter, download the binaries, and refer to the previous section).

Because of the diversity of platforms and the possible issues involved, we refer you to https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia, and in that, the Source Download and Compilation section.
