Share Apps

To share your app with others you only need to give them the .mlappinstall file. All files you added when you packaged the app are included in the .mlappinstall file. When the recipients install your app, they do not need to be concerned with the MATLAB® path or other installation details. The .mlappinstall file manages that for them.

You can share your app with others by attaching the .mlappinstall file to an email message, or using any other method you typically use to share files—such as uploading to MATLAB Central File Exchange. Provide instructions on installing your app by referring them to Install or Reinstall App.

    Note:   While .mlappinstall files can contain any files you specify, MATLAB Central File Exchange places additional limitations on submissions. Your app cannot be submitted to File Exchange if it contains any of the following:

    • MEX-files

    • Other binary executable files, such as DLLs or ActiveX® controls. (Data and image files are typically acceptable.)
