Julia bindings for TileDB
A Julia API for TileDB would indeed be very helpful, for my particular situation it would be an additional pro for the use of both TileDB and Julia in my company.
Is this functionality still under consideration (since it has been under review for a few years now)?
Any progress here?
There are many applications in the Julia eco-system that would benefit from TileDB. For example storing and retrieving results of simulations with the widely used DifferentialEquations.jl package.
For the object-oriented modeling and simulation package Modia.jl the SignalTables.jl package is used that has a very flexible way to store meta data with simulation results as needed for a credible simulation process (for more details see SignalTables article). Currently this data is either stored in JSON or HDF5 format. TileDB would offer significant advantages.

It would be extra nice if this could work with the C FFI
andallow for parallel operations (if the C API doesn’t currently support it)
Having a binding would be great!
A julia client would be great!
Accessing via the C API is likely the easiest solution since Julia's C FFI is so smooth/straight-forward. However, getting parallel read/write on the C++ side to play nice with Julia's own thread scheduler might need some added bits.
In any case, very much appreciated if there could be an official implementation!
