aMi: alternative Matlab ide
What this extension is about
The "alternative Matlab ide" aims at providing a full fledged Matlab user experience directly from VSCode.
This extension is a work in progress and features will be added as described in the Feature section bellow.
This extension is intended for Linux users (so most should work on MacOS).
Current version 0.4.0.
What this extension is not about
... though it might be if it comes for free ...
There is no intent to provide integration for toolboxes, application packaging or Simulink. These Matlab extensions are available through the Matlab command window.
There is no intent to provide compatibility to Windows... not that I want to preclude from using Windows, but I just don't own one...
