Python 3.7+ and the following libraries:

  • PySimpleGUI
  • appdirs

Optional requirement:

  • rpy2 >=3.4
  • markdown >=3.0

Rendering Rmd File (work in progress)

To render Rmd files directly via the RExam-Item-Editor, you need a functioning installation of R including the R-package exams.

If you don't use the Windows executable, install the Python-package rpy2 (pip install rpy2).

Windows user find two executable files for RExam-Item-Editor, one with and one without R rendering support. RExam-Item-Editor with rendering does not work on computers without a R installation.

Note: The Item Editor for the ShareStats project is based on RExam-item-Editor.
