Matlab and Qt

131 views (last 30 days)
I’m wonder if you can help me. I want to create an Qt interface to Matlab standalone application.
I don't know if it is practical, but I want to create beautiful IDEs and use Matlab functions
Probably, I should compile m files first.
I didn’t found credible information in websites or blogs about this. How can I start?

  • Don't use MATLAB, use Python instead.
  • PyQt is a Qt binding for Python.
  • Numpy, Scipy & Matplotlib give you all of the functionality that MATLAB does and more.
  • Download and install python(x,y) for a quick start-up solution that is equivalent to MATLAB. It comes with Python, Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib, PyQt and Spyderlib (a MATLAB-like IDE) and many more packages that you will most likely need, all preconfigured to work together out-of-the-box.

Thanks for your answer. However, I'm already using Python, but I had a problem. I cannot use the ode solver of numpy like ode from matlab. I'm electronic engineer, sometimes I need to use the space system approach, and the ode of numpy doesn't support.

I don't know enough about Java and QT to know if you can get a QT interface.

Thanks for the tip.
But, my objective is use Qt as main interface to "command" a compiled (in exe or lib) matlab program!
