Is it possible to compile MATLAB programs that contain Python code using MATLAB Compiler?

I tried compiling my MATLAB program with Python code into a standalone application, but got the following error message when running it:
Undefined variable "py" or function "py.command"

Yes, this workflow is supported. 
But please pay attention to what mentioned in the link below before compiling your code:
Some possible causes for this error are:
  • The target machine must have a supported version of Python installed.
  • The installed version of Python must be discoverable by MATLAB.
  • If the py. command is calling a custom Python module, than it must be on the Python search path.
