Build standalone executables and web apps from MATLAB programs
MATLAB Compiler™ enables you to share MATLAB® programs as standalone applications and web apps. With MATLAB Compiler you can also package and deploy MATLAB programs as MapReduce and Spark™ big data applications and as Microsoft® Excel® Add-ins. End users can run your applications royalty-free using MATLAB Runtime.
To provide browser-based access to your MATLAB web apps, you can host them using the development version of MATLAB Web App Server™ included with MATLAB Compiler. MATLAB programs can be packaged into software components for integration with other programming languages (with MATLAB Compiler SDK™). Large-scale deployment to enterprise systems is supported through MATLAB Production Server™.
To generate C and C++ source code from MATLAB, use MATLAB Coder™.
Create Standalone Applications
Create standalone applications from your MATLAB programs and share them royalty-free with other users. To create standalone applications from Simulink® simulations, use Simulink Compiler™. Standalone applications can be complete apps that use MATLAB graphics and UIs designed with MATLAB App Designer or GUIDE, or they can be command-line executables.
Distribute Applications as Docker Containers
Package and distribute your standalone applications as self-contained Docker images. The container image consists of the application, optimized MATLAB Runtime components, and operating system libraries.
Define Custom Input and Output Formats
You can define user inputs for your applications and choose how results are presented using all output formats that MATLAB supports, including text, numeric, and graphical formats.
Create Web Apps
Create MATLAB apps using App Designer and package them as web apps. Users can access each web app via a unique URL directly from their browser without installing any additional software. Use Simulink Compiler to include Simulink simulations within a web app.
Host Web Apps
Use the development version of MATLAB Web App Server provided with MATLAB Compiler to host your MATLAB web apps and share them with users in your trusted intranet environment. For additional capabilities, including authentication and support for apps developed in different releases of MATLAB, use MATLAB Web App Server.
Create New Formulas
Create custom functions for Microsoft Excel by packaging MATLAB programs as Excel Add-ins. Excel users can access custom functions just as they would any native Excel function. Use interactive tools in MATLAB Compiler to test your code before packaging and deploying it as an add-in.
Enable Custom Analyses and Simulations
Create Excel Add-ins to perform analyses and simulations within Excel that incorporate algorithms, visualizations, and user interfaces developed in MATLAB.
Create and Execute Tall Array Applications
Create and execute standalone MATLAB applications with tall arrays against Apache Spark™ enabled Hadoop® clusters. You can also create and execute MATLAB applications against Spark using the MATLAB API for Spark.
Create and Execute MapReduce Applications
Create standalone MATLAB MapReduce applications to run against a Hadoop cluster. You can also create deployable archives from MATLAB map and reduce functions and incorporate them into a Hadoop mapreduce job.
Automate MATLAB Runtime Installations on Big Data Platforms
Configure your big data platform to automatically download MATLAB Runtime and deploy your MATLAB based MapReduce or Spark applications for data analytics and big data processing.
Deploy MATLAB Analytics to Users Who Do Not Need MATLAB
All applications and add-ins created with MATLAB Compiler are executed using MATLAB Runtime, a collection of shared libraries and code that enables you to share MATLAB programs internally with decision makers and colleagues, or externally with clients and customers. You can package your application with MATLAB Runtime or have your users download it when they install your application.
Develop applications on one platform and deploy them to a server or workstation running on any other supported platform. Your end users can install and run the applications on any MATLAB Runtime supported platform.
Benefit from Encrypted MATLAB Code
MATLAB Compiler encrypts your MATLAB code files, so your source code remains hidden from users of your applications.
Use Interactive Packaging Tools
Use MATLAB Compiler apps to interactively package your MATLAB applications. You can package them as standalone applications, web apps, MapReduce and Spark applications, and Excel Add-ins. Alternatively, use command-line tools for scripted packaging.
Create a customized installer for your application with information such as author, splash screen, and version number. The packaging apps automatically identify and select files that are dependent on your main MATLAB application and provide options to package these files along with additional data into your final application.
New command-line interface
compiler.build to generate standalone applications, web apps, and production server archives
compiler.package.docker to package a standalone application and corresponding MATLAB Runtime components as docker images (Linux OS only)
