Installing Python Libraries in Matlab Online

51 views (last 30 days)
Matlab recently added the support of calling python functions from Matlab and the server hosting Matlab online also has python2.7 installed (checked by runnning 'pyenv').
However i am not sure how to install packages like 'numpy' (as an import gives an error).
Without packages like numpy this feature isnt very useful (for the online version, i can still use the offline)

Hi Anirudh ,
As you have correctly mentioned Mathworks recently added the support of calling python functions from Matab. Refer to the following documentation of Python libraries in matlab
Now talking about libraries such as numpy which doesn't come up directly with python version and required separate installation won't work in MATALB online. But if you have numpy installed on your end and have matlab software as well ,then you can import those libraries, refer to this answer :
So I suggest you to use MATLAB software if you want to use those specific libraries.
