MATLAB Online Graphing Toolbox

by plotly

Plotly brings interactive, online graphing to your MATLAB console.
[X,Y] = meshgrid(-8:.5:8);
R = sqrt(X.^2 + Y.^2) + eps;
Z = sin(R)./R;
surf(Z);

fig2plotly(fig); % generate a web-based version of the MATLAB figure
Plotly's MATLAB graphs are interactive in the web browser. Hover over values, scroll to zoom, click-and-drag to rotate and pan. Since Plotly graphs are built with native web technologies javascript, SVG, d3.js, and webgl, no plugins or downloads are required.
[X,Y,Z] = peaks;
contour(X,Y,Z,20);
fig2plotly();
MATLAB Online graphs are created with HTML and Javascript. You can generate and serve this HTML and JavaScript with the self-hosted desktop MATLAB Online toolbox or you can save and share your MATLAB Online figures with Plotly's cloud service.
Use Plotly with MATLAB to share your figures with non-MATLAB users, to create web-based MATLAB dashboards, as the visualization toolbox in MATLAB web applications, or just for publication quality vector image export.
