dynamically load and run R scripts

Jens
Hi guys,

I was searching for a possiblity to dynamically load and run R scripts and I found
http://dev.list.galaxyproject.org/dynamic-loading-of-tools-tt4138600.html
I know that it might be a security issue, but we only have a local instance here.

Optimally an R script can be loaded into the history. Subsequently, this script can be execute via "tool" that takes this script and some parameters and returns the result.
 
Is anything like that out there? Could anyone give me a reference?

Thanks a lot, Jens

Hi Jens, the toolfactory (install from the admin menu - it's in the main toolshed) allows admin users to paste and run arbitrary R scripts.

Yes, there are serious security issues exposing unrestricted scripting! So the toolfactory only works for admin users and should never be installed on public/production instance but you can generate a new Galaxy tool from your script once it runs correctly, in a toolshed compatible format.
Once installed from a toolshed, the generated tools are ordinary Galaxy tools with normal Galaxy security.
