How to compile a Standalone App which requires Python?
25 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to compile a Standalone App with App designer.
The goal should be that other user can open the App without having Matlab installed.
The App workes on App Designer perfectly. Even if I compile the App and open it on my computer everything runs.
However, if I open the App on an other computer (without MATLAB, Python and CoolProp) the App opens but the calculation can't be done.
I guess the problem is the missing Python and/or CoolProp on the second Computer.
My code uses this function:
rho=py.CoolProp.CoolProp.PropsSI('D','T',273.15+ T_gc_out ,'P',p_h,KM)
Is there a way to compile the App including the required Python and CoolProp software to run my programm? I want to include these files, or codes in the app such that the other users don't have to download Python and CoolProp separately.

As of R2021a, MATLAB doesn't support including external software when deploying an application automatically. However, as Mario suggested, you can try including the embeddable package of python. Note that it does not contain pip to install other packages. Hence, you also need to use the manual local installation instructions present in the CoolProp documentation.
Hope this helps
