MATLAB: Is there a MATLAB package manager

MATLABpackage managerworkflow

I cannot find any MathWorks endorsed package managers. The user-built solutions I have found do not seem to be popular (PackMan, DepMat, mpm) or regularly maintained. What do people recommend? Is there a reason for the lack of package manager in comparison to pip (python), npm (JavaScript)? How does MathWorks recommend I organise seperate but interdependent code?

Right now there is no package manager like the ones you listed in that everything in MATLAB is tied to the path. Using MATLAB Add-ons with the File Exchange and MATLAB Projects with reference projects are the two best current solutions. You can minimize namespace collisions with namespace packages in MATLAB (note the terminology here does not imply package like in other languages).
