Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

For versions 2.x

Install the XAR, save the pages "XWiki.Xuake" and "XWiki.XuakeExecutor" with programming rights then, on any page press F10 to toggle the console.

For versions 1.x

Install the XAR, save the page "XWiki.GroovyConsoleExecutor" with programming rights then point to XWiki.GroovyConsole to get started.

Release Notes


Rewritten the extension as a "Quake style" or "Firefox style" console, available on all pages upon F10 key press.


Fixed for XWiki 2.4+ where deferred loading of scripts/JSX have been introduced


Fixed $xwiki.jsfx call displayed on versions of XE < 1.8
