5.1 animate configure


The animate package is R based but requires the Rust language package manager cargo to install gifski (Ooms 2022), a gif encoder written in Rust for excellent animations. On a Ubuntu system the cargo package needs to be installed, which configure will attempt if not already installed. This requires system administrator access. If the user running the configure has permissions then configure will work. Otherwise a system administrator will need to install it with:

wajig install cargo

Once cargo is installed the remainder of the R packages will be installed for the local user.

ml configure animate

Output will be something like the following, with variations depending on what packages are already installed on the system.
