Background: I am developing an app through the Matlab App Designer (2020b), and I'm using Git to keep track of changes. However, since the .MLAPP file is a binary file, the only way to see what has changed is to export the app to .M, and then comparing the deltas of the .M file. Now, if me and a collaborator both make (non-conflicting) changes to the .MLAPP, we cannot automatically merge the changes and obtain a combination of our work. With the .M files we can merge each others changes, but then we cannot continue development in the App Designer because there is no way to turn the .M back into .MLAPP.
Question: Is there a way to re-import an .M file, created by exporting an .MLAPP file, into the App Designer? Alternatively, how do I go about collaborating and maintaining .MLAPP code through Git?
