File Exchange Now Hosts GitHub!

Let’s say you’ve created an awesome MATLAB file, and you want the world to know about it. So you go to the File Exchange page and click on the big blue button that says “Submit a File”. In the past, you’d see a page that asks you to submit a ZIP-file to be uploaded. But something has changed. Now you have options. What are they?


We’ve added a direct connection between File Exchange and GitHub. In practice, this means that if your code already lives on GitHub, you can leave it there. The File Exchange is now smart enough to distribute the code directly from GitHub to anyone who asks for it from MATLAB Central. You get all the benefits of collaborative development in GitHub while community members get access to the latest version of your projects. No need to maintain the files in two different locations. Push your changes up to GitHub, and seconds later that’s what gets served from the File Exchange.

We’re very excited about this feature, because we know there are already a lot of excellent MATLAB-related repos on GitHub. With this feature, we join two strong communities and open a new era on MATLAB Central.
