MATLAB wrapper for Python

Project Description

matlab_wrapper allows you to use MATLAB directly from your Python scripts and an interactive shell. MATLAB session is started in the background and appears as a regular Python module.

Warning: matlab_wrapper is maintained, but not actively developed. Consider using the official MATLAB Engine for Python, forking the repository, or using alternatives mentioned in the FAQ.

Usage

Initialize:

import matlab_wrapper
matlab = matlab_wrapper.MatlabSession()

Low level:

matlab.put('a', 12.3)
matlab.eval('b = a * 2')
b = matlab.get('b')

Workspace:

s = matlab.workspace.sin([0.1, 0.2, 0.3])

sorted,idx = matlab.workspace.sort([3,1,2], nout=2)

matlab.workspace.a = 12.3
b = matlab.workspace.b

More examples are in the examples directory!

Features

  • Access MATLAB variables and functions from Python
  • Multiplatform: GNU/Linux, Windows, OS X
  • On-the-fly conversion between MATLAB and Numpy data types
  • Support for MATLAB’s numerical, logical, struct and cell arrays
  • Pure Python, no need to compile anything (matlab_wrapper talks to MATLAB engine library using ctypes)

For a complete list of changes including new features, check the NEWS.rst file.

Installation

First, make sure that you have the following components installed:

  • Python (2.7, no Python 3 support yet)
