Usage Instructions for CloudRunner Client

Download the CloudRunner Client by clicking here and place the downloaded file in your MATLAB working directory.

Inside MATLAB, initialize the CloudRunner Client by calling CloudRunner:
>> CloudRunnerA login dialog will prompt for your CloudRunner mail address and password. For a start, you can leave the dialog empty and just click "Connect".
Alternatively, you can provide the login credentials (or empty strings to skip login) as a parameter and hence skip the login dialog. This is useful when using CloudRunner in noninteractive scripts.
>> CloudRunner('mail@example.com', 'password') 
Select this algorithm by its URL. Selecting an algorithm creates the lambda function that proxies calls to the algorithm to the server for execution:
>> CloudRunnerSelect('http://www.cloudrunner.eu/algorithm/93/generateuniformelydistributedpointson2sphere/version/1/')For the sake of convenience, you can also use the algorithm ID instead of its URL for public algorithms.

Call functions from the algorithm like any regular local function.
