To extend the capabilities of MATLAB® and gain additional functionality for specific tasks and application, use add-ons. You can find and install add-ons using the Add-On Explorer. To open the Add-On Explorer, go to the Home tab and in the Environment section, click the Add-Ons icon.
Find add-ons by browsing through available categories located on the left side of the Add-On Explorer window, or by using the search bar.
Click an add-on to open its detailed information page. From this page you can:
View additional information about the add-on, such as included files and available documentation.
Install the add-on.
After you install an add-on, MATLAB manages the MATLAB path for you. Therefore, you can start using an add-on without making adjustments to your desktop environment.
Note: When installing a MathWorks® product add-on, additional required products are installed automatically. For all other add-ons, you must install additional required products manually.
You can install some add-ons manually. This is helpful if the add-on is not available for installation through the Add-On Explorer. For example, you could create a custom add-on yourself or receive one from someone else.
To install the add-on manually, double click the add-on installation file in the MATLAB Current Folder browser. An installer launches to guide you through the installation process.
Valid installation files include
.mlappinstall files (apps), and
(hardware support packages).
