Starting the AddOn Manager from the command line

44 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to write some routines to assist users with automatically updating software. It would be helpful if I could run a command that would open the AddOn Manager but so far I can't find one. Does one exist?

Or run matlab with a script that runs matlab.addons.install.
Not much functionality available in that--you'd have to overwrite everything, unless you can find a way to check the versions online. Hardware support packages are updated more frequently, and have a more useful function.

I am looking for a command to load the Add On Manager GUI rather than run the update on my software. The reason is that the user might want to explore what the changes are before comitting themselves.

I've just run across the Matlab Package Manager, though I'm not sure it would be helpful for your case either.

The Production Server is an optional toolbox. I can't assume my users will have it so it's not a solution, sadly.
The "pathtool" command opens the GUI for modifying the MATLAB path. Is there no command to open the already built-in Addon Manager GUI?
