As said on top of the extension page I do not continue to maintain this extension. I moved to use Shiny and created the new extension Extension:Iframe which just embeds a shiny app from my shiny server.
End of extension maintenance
Debian 8.5 with Mediawiki 1.27.0
Under Debian 8.5 the extension does not work with Mediawiki 1.27.0. Update your PHP 5.6.xx to PHP 7.0.
How to get it? I can't download!
You don't have permission to access /mediawiki/sk/index.php/R_Extension_for_MediaWiki on this server.
Thanks. But I still can't download it. See below--- "403 Forbidden You don't have permission to access /www-data/RinMW_010.tgz on this server."
Affirmative. A couple of day ago it was working. However there was another problem with the tared files (v0.10). I was not able to untar them and got an error message (cannot remember what it was, though). It would be nice it this could be checked whilst being at it. Cheers
again sorry for that. From my workplace I have full access to the webserver, but outside access I can test only from home. I changed the access rules for downloading; I could download and unpack the 0.10 version now at home. --Sigbert (talk) 10:16, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Will the extension be integrated in git?
Currently not. I have no experience with git or version control systems at all.
The version 0.14_1 can be downloaded/cloned from github: https://github.com/sigbertklinke/R
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected problems with v0.12
first of all, thanks for your amazing work! i've a couple of problems with version 0.12 in an Ubuntu 12.04 server with MW 1.21.1
1) The extension generates a PHP error "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /var/www/......../extensions/R/ForbiddenCommandsR.php on line 165"
2) In the special page --> version, the expansion appears as version 0.11 and not 0.12
i've also a question: how can I change the security level to 0? I understand the risks of doing that, but i'm working on a secure enviromment
sorry for this late answer, but I'am not very active at mediawiki.org. However, yesterday someone hinted me to this question through the mailing list r-sig-mediawiki.
Debian Wheezy uses PHP 5.4.4, but Ubuntu 12.04.3 uses PHP 5.3.10, that creates the '[' error. I have uploaded a modified version 0.12_1 which runs with R properly under Ubuntu 12.04.3. I corrected also some other problems, e.g. that 0.12 required R 2.15 or above, at least R 2.14.1 should work now.
Currently you can not activate security level 0 directly. The only possibility is to replace in ForbiddenCommandsR.php the
static $banned = array ( ... );
static $banned = array ();
This might be the future way for security level zero, since the aim of making an extra file was to allow for an easier fine-tuning of forbidden commands.
Invocation of this extension
Heiya Sigbert, I would like to suggest that this extension may be invoked by using R.php instead of Rext.php. To have a file name deviating from the directory name is non standard within the MediaWiki world and is always likely to cause confustion. Cheers
Hmm, by looking at the instructions I suspect that the R software already uses R.php. This would change things. I tried to have a look but somehow I was not able to extract the tar provided. Perhaps an info that the R software is a precondition and should be downloaded separately would be good.
