Read more about the Add-On Explorer in MATLAB here.
You also can create your own add-ons, including apps and toolboxes. For more information about creating apps, see Package Apps From the MATLAB Toolstrip.
To share the add-ons you create, submit them to File Exchange at MATLAB Central. The add-ons you share are discoverable in both File Exchange and the Add-On Explorer.
Add-ons extend the capability of MATLAB with thousands of entries available - from toolboxes, to apps, to hardware support packages, or even submissions from the MATLAB community. You're likely to find something for your project no matter what you're working on.
You can search for, download, and install add-ons without ever leaving the MATLAB environment. Find the Add-On Explorer under the Home tab, where you can search for new add-ons, or see what you have already installed.
Let's do a search for image processing. It turns out there are several official toolboxes related to image processing. You can filter your results by type, application, and other categories.
If you're in more of a browsing mood, you can search from the Add-Ons homepage for all add-ons related to a particular category. For example, ”autonomous systems” brings up related toolboxes, as well as support packages from both MathWorks staff as well as the community.
You can further filter by subcategory and also filter by type.
This filter lets us see what hardware support packages are available, including this popular support package which enables video and image capture from both built-in and USB webcams.
You can even find “just for fun” entries, as well. Click on games and find hundreds of community submissions from snake, to chess, to Risk.
To see what you have installed before, you can manage your add-ons by clicking here in the upper right. Or access the same from the MATLAB toolstrip.
Check out the Add-On Explorer now, and see what toolboxes, apps, or hardware support packages and community submissions might be able to help you out.
For more information, check out the documentation, and don't hesitate to leave us feedback.
