Python Package Integration

Integrate compiled MATLAB® functions into Python® applications

MATLAB Compiler SDK™ provides Python methods to initialize MATLAB Runtime, invoke compiled MATLAB functions, and manage data that is passed between the Python code and MATLAB Runtime.

For a list of compatible Python versions, see MATLAB Supported Interfaces to Other Languages.

You cannot package MATLAB code that calls Python from MATLAB unless it is called in out-of-process mode.
