I'm trying to get the jupyter MATLAB engine to install. I've folowed every web tutorial I can find. None of them seem to work.
My situation:
  • I have MATLAB 2019a
  • I'm on macOS 10.14.3
  • I'd vastly prefer to use the stock macOS python, which is python 2.7. I find python version control to be hellish. I don't develop in python and, hence, don't intentionally have any anaconda environments installed. I don't understand anaconda and have no reason to learn it.
I have run the following:
cd /Applications/MATLAB_R2019a.app/extern/engines/python/
python setup.py build --build-base=$(mktemp -d) install
which seems to run fine:
running build
running build_py

However, when I list the directory I get:
build dist setup.py
I have jupyter set up via launchctl. When try to start jupyter I get:
sudo launchctl load jupyter
Password:
/Applications/MATLAB_R2019a.app/extern/engines/python/jupyter: No such file or directory
And when I run a jupyter session, I see matlab as an available kernel, but the kernel dies when I start a new notebook.
Any ideas?
