How can my Matlab script read streamed data from my Python script

3 views (last 30 days)
I have created a script in Python which streams live data to my terminal on my Macbook. I am suing Python 3.6. At this point I must add I am very new to Python. I want to stream the data into Matlab workspace, and allow my Matlab code to read it as an input. How might I do this very simply? Alternative I am thinking I can store the streamed data in a SQL Light data base, and have Matlab read from the database.

If you use Python 3.5 or lower, following links will help you get started:

Thank you. This is interesting and some wbat confirms next steps. I need to install and earlier version of python as I am running 3.6 :/
