What is a .MLAPPINSTALL file?

A .MLAPPINSTALL file is a MATLAB app installer file. It is an archive file that contains everything necessary to install and run a MATLAB app. This includes the app's source code, supporting data, information about the app's dependencies, and the app's icon.

MATLAB app installer files are typically used to share MATLAB apps with others. They can be installed on any computer that has MATLAB installed. When you install a .MLAPPINSTALL file, the app is installed to your MATLAB application directory. You can then run the app from the MATLAB desktop or from the command line.

MATLAB app installer files are also used to distribute MATLAB apps to a wider audience. For example, you can upload a .MLAPPINSTALL file to the MATLAB File Exchange, where it can be downloaded and installed by other MATLAB users.

Here are some of the benefits of using MATLAB app installer files:

  • They make it easy to distribute and install MATLAB apps.
  • They help to ensure that apps are installed correctly and have all of the dependencies they need.
  • They can be used to distribute apps to a wider audience.

If you are creating a MATLAB app that you want to share with others, I recommend that you create a .MLAPPINSTALL file for your app. This will make it easy for others to install and run your app.
