This is a list of Packages and Codes available for GNU Octave.

Octave packages

Octave packages extend the functionality of GNU Octave by particular useful features and can be developed and distributed by anyone. Currently there are two collections of Octave packages:

The format and requirements of Octave packages is specified in the GNU Octave manual. There is an example package as well.

Octave packages can be installed by the pkg tool. The following two examples demonstrate how to install the example package (1.) after downloading the release tarball and (2.) directly from an URL.

  1. pkg install pkg-example-1.0.0.tar.gz
  2. pkg install

If your packages meets additional criteria and is added to the Octave Forge index, you can furthermore install it with the -forge flag, for example:

  • pkg install -forge image

Other codes

With pkg install

Name Description Links
MPI Octave bindings for basic Message Passing Interface (MPI) functions for parallel computing.
Packajoozle An experimental alternative package manager for Octave.
Tablicious Matlab-compatible table, datetime, and categorical data types (Like "pandas for Octave").
Websockets The Websockets package is a simple implementation of a websocket client for GNU Octave. It contains the elemental functions to communicate with a websockets server.
Pythonic The Pythonic package provides a Python language binding for Octave, to allow any Python package to be loaded and used directly, with automatic translation from Octave to Python data types.

Custom installation method


GeoPDEs is an open source and free package for the research and teaching of Isogeometric Analysis, written in Octave and fully compatible with Matlab.

The GeoPDEs package provides a common and flexible framework for implementing and testing new isogeometric methods for the solution of partial differential equations.

FEATool - Finite Element Analysis Toolbox

FEATool Multiphysics is a commercial and proprietary Octave and Matlab FEM toolbox for modeling and simulation of physics and engineering applications with the finite element method. FEATool features an easy to use GUI and fully integrated CAD, geometry tools, automatic grid generation and solvers.


GNU Octave Redis client


Libraries for support vector machine / machine learning classification, regression, and distribution estimation problems. C++, with an interface to Octave.


The Large Time-Frequency Analysis Toolbox®. Please note, this package is available on Octave Forge too, but it has its own website.


An extension for MATLAB® or GNU/octave to access sqlite3 databases


A set of graph/networks analysis functions in Octave


Main article: Symbolic package

This package is now part of Octave Forge as Symbolic package. Main development site is still at

sci cosim

Main article: sci cosim

Scilab co-simulation package


The Shogun Machine Learning Toolbox®


The VLFeat open source library implements popular computer vision algorithms including HOG, SIFT, MSER, k-means, hierarchical k-means, agglomerative information bottleneck, SLIC superpixels, and quick shift.


The epanet-octave open source library is a wrapper, including some scripts, to call Epanet Toolkit. Functions are adapted to improve its usability in GNU Octave (e.g. allowing vectors as EpaNet Toolkit function inputs). Still under development.
