MatDeck incorporates Python, C, and MD C++ scripts along with unique mixtures of code in MD documents to create an ideal and personalised experience for every user. MD documents also contain a text editor (with spelling, headings, contents, bullet points) to create a pleasing presentation for its users. However, MatDeck is still a highly scientific software and therefore has distinct features such as various problem solving GUIs, mathematic editor and functions, GUI designer and other options/features. All of these are seamlessly combine in a MD document to create a pleasant yet advanced document.

MatDeck comes equipped with a GUI designer that can generate GUI components in Python and MD script to best fit the users’ needs and simplifies the creation of standalone applications. Widgets and Apps can now be easily assembled and maintained without the need of expert skill.

Mathematics, code, live EXE processing and text editing

MD documents allow for programming code to be mixed with numerous scientific equations and a variety of GUIs all in the same MD document. Features such as bullet points, headings, headers, footers, flowcharts, drawings and tables can also be used in conjugation. This allows for the outputs to be manipulated at any point.

MD documents are also “live”: mathematical formulas, GUIs and code are processed spontaneously. MD documents can be used for presentation, creating applications or ordinary coding files. MatDeck, Python scripts and GUIs can all create EXE files to decrease the completion time of documents, making coding and standalone applications like GUIs faster.MD documents operate and execute at comparable speed to other dedicated programming languages. EXE files can also be created autonomously.

Functions and variables can be flawlessly shuffled and shifted between Python, MD C++ script and MatDecks features and attributes. Variables are traded between MD’s code editor and mathematical editor spontaneously to allow for the smooth use of MD documents.

MatDecks exclusive user interface mixes functions, variables and attributes from different fields of studies into the same document. The example above showcase how to use MD mathematical functions with Python to produce neat and precise graphs without unnecessary lines of code.

Mathematical functions can be called and edited in real time in MD documents along with symbolic mathematics. The outputs can be manipulated at any point with features like Python, MatDeck C++ style script, GUIs and etc.

Databases and MatDeck

The universally used SQLite comes embedded in all MatDeck softwares. Other databases such as MySQL, MS, SQL and Postgres are compatible but need to be installed. MatDeck also contains a database browser with further database queries. Databases can be run with Python, C, MD C++ script, numerus DB queries and MD database functions.

The GUI comes equipped a complete set of features and functions. This includes 19 individual GUI objects/elements that have countless possibilities and an unrestrained number of objects/elements that can be place in the work area.

All GUI elements/objects have a boundless level of customisation and personalisation. GUI applications are incomparable and made to fit the user’s necessities.

When a GUI is assembled, the entire application can be outputted as programming code. The generated code will either be outputted as Python code or as MatDeck C++ style code depending on where the GUI was created.

Creating Standalone App – Build and Run EXE

Apps or deploy EXE files can be created for all and any applications .The apps created can be GUIs that sort databases or interact with users.EXE files and GUIs can be created for hardware from hundreds of different electronic devices.

MatDeck documents EXEs have execution speeds that are on par with C++ compilers.

Limitless GUI features allow for any parameters set to be created into an applications. If any extensions or additional files (.dll) are needed they will be created and saved along with the application in the selected document.

built run exe

Applications and GUIs can run on computers/PCs without MatDeck installed. This allows for any standalone application created to be executed on any device making demonstrations and showcases adequately easier.

As previously mentioned, all necessary extensions and additional files (.dll) are created and included with the application in the selected folder. Apps will work on all PCs .

Curve Fitting

Curve fitting is a fundamental and routinely used system for the analysis and modelling of various data points. Curve fitting is relied on in many engineering applications and is indispensable.

Curve Fitting forms

Curve fitting forms are similar to configuration forms and can be used to initiate and set up curve fitting applications via custom GUIs.

curve fitting form

Custom curve fitting functions can launch curve fitting configuration forms that can be deployed in either a MD document or a programming document. These functions can also be stored as variables to be called on for late use

The Results variable stores the curve retrieved by the functions curvefitresult.

Regardless that MatDeck is more conformed for mathematicians and engineers, all features and function are integrated in the same document to best suit all users. Created curves can be generated in the form of code; allowing for all features and function to be used with the code.

Coding – Python, C and MD C++ style script IDE

For programmers, MatDeck offers three different Programing IDE (Integrated Development Environment). The three IDEs are:

  • Python IDE
  • C IDE
  • MD C++stile script IDE

The image below, shows a Python IDE. This type of MD document cannot combine code, text editing and mathematic equations in a single document. However, if needed, Python code can be called into a MatDeck script to allow all features to be utilized.

Python FFT and 2D Graphs

A typical Python code example combined with MatDecks 2D graphs, document text editor and headings leads to a great example that showcases how different MD features can be used and integrated together in the same document. From headings you can generate contents in same document.

Filter response GUI with 2D graphs

To set up a filter, a configuration form with fields and parameters is used. In the example shown below, the response from the filter is displayed within the configuration from. The user can chose whether to output the response with the configuration form or outside it.

MD’s unique document architecture is used in this example by allowing configuration forms, output graphs and narrative text editing to be used and integrated together into a single document.

Reducing amount of coding example analysis in frequency domain 

Frequency domain analysis can be performed by using configuration forms in the same document as the analysis itself. The Frequency domain analysis’s Transform method, Direction (Direct/Inverse) and length can be edited and customised to the user’s preference. Multiple different Transform methods are available for use. Using GUIs, the amount of code is dramatically reduced.

Simplicity to use a waveform generator

Below are Visionary Deck examples. The first example is a waveform generation tool. Here you can see the simplicity of joining the executive waveforms generator GUI tool with text editing and headings, on top of this you can add code such as Python, C , MD C++ style script, all in same document layer.
