matlab live script support run Python language directly

42 views (last 30 days)
Luckily Mathworks has started to focus on the interaction between MATLAB and python in the last few years, rather than comparing their strengths and weaknesses, e.g. the github open-source board "matlab+python" in order to support Python users, and the documentation has been updated a lot.
But what I would like to see is to use matlab live script(mlx file) to write python source code directly (code highlighting, smart completion hints, help files, etc.), which has the advantage of being able to debug and run through the python code in a unified MATLAB environment instead of debugging and running through the python code in some python IDE environment and then passing it through pyrun , pyrunfile and other functions indirectly called.

I now believe that the above "new feature" cannot be integrated into future versions of MATLAB because it does not follow the logic of the MATLAB design philosophy. If you can write/run python directly in mlx files, MATLAB can actually be used as a python IDE, and even then, if you change it to C/C++ and provide compiler paths, it will be a C/C++ IDE with a few frills, but for so many years, MATLAB has been an IDE only for itself.
