Web apps are MATLAB apps that can run in a web browser. You create an interactive MATLAB app using App Designer, package it using the Web App Compiler, and host it using MATLAB Web App Server. Each web app has a unique URL and can be accessed from a web browser using HTTP or HTTPS protocols. The server has a home page listing all available hosted web apps. You share web apps by sharing the unique URL to a web app or the URL to the home page of the server.
Web apps are designed to run only within a trusted intranet environment, not in the open Internet. For more information, see Potential Risks.
Only apps designed using App Designer can be deployed as web apps. Web apps are supported on Windows®, Linux®, and macOS. For a list of supported web browsers, see Supported Browsers and Platform Incompatibilities.
