MATLAB wrapper for Python
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.
import matlab_wrapper matlab = matlab_wrapper.MatlabSession()
matlab.put('a', 12.3) matlab.eval('b = a * 2') b = matlab.get('b')
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

- 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.
First, make sure that you have the following components installed:
- Python (2.7, no Python 3 support yet)
