Free and easy computational engine featuring syntax compatible with MATLAB and a virtual editor and prompt. Powered by GNU Octave.

Have a need for GNU Octave but can't go through the hour-long installation process? Do you travel frequently and need an always-online computational interface? Are you a student in an engineering, numerical methods, or computational science course? Then Octave Online might be for you. Octave Online provides you with an easy interface to run your computational commands in your browser. FEATURES: 1. Optimized for Google Chrome, but accessible online from any computer running a modern web browser. 2. Powered by the open-source GNU Octave project, so if you already know MATLAB, you may hardly notice a difference in the syntax. 3. Upload, edit, and save your Octave functions and scripts. They will be saved between sessions so you can access them from anywhere. 4. Interactive Ace online text editor supporting sophisticated key bindings to increase your workflow speed. 5. Interactive Octave prompt that enables you to re-run and edit previous commands. OTHER RESOURCES: GNU Octave documentation: http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/ List of Ace editor key bindings: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace/wiki/Default-Keyboard-Shortcuts

It's not an add-on, it is only a link to the webpage.

Works perfectly on a Chromebook ASUS C201. Can write/upload scripts and plot functions without a problem. Really useful for people who don´t want to mess with the developer mode on chromeOS to install the real thing.
