Installation Biblioshiny in Rstudio


I have one problem with the installation of Biblioshiny. I describe it that:
I use a MAC (High Sierra version)
I have installed Studio and Rstudio following the instructions: And also I have installed Bibliometrix package correctly.
But I can´t install Biblioshiny in the Rstudio. The message is: "Error in Biblioshiny"

Could you help me, please?


Did you go with CRAN, or Github?

I go with CRAN.

Many thanks

do you do

following instructions

Biblioshiny Support told me:

"The error is due to a bug in R. Sometimes dependencies are not correctly installed.
Please manually install missing packages:
And then re-install bibliometrix

But I don't know how I can install install.packages(“XML”)

I have no computer knowledge...

Type it into the rstudio console...


When I install.packages("install.packages(“XML”)") the message is following:

Warning in install.packages :
package ‘install.packages(“XML”)’ is not available (for R version 4.0.2)

why would you embed it in itself. Once is enough...

Sorry, I don't understand very welll... If I type install.packages(“XML”) into the rstudio console, the message is: Warning in install.packages :
package ‘install.packages(“XML”)’ is not available (for R version 4.0.2)

How may I install install.packages(“XML”)?

please, what operating system do you use ?
also, what is the output when you type:


My operating system is High Sierra (10.13.6).
The output is

[1] TRUE
This link has a binary for macosx
I think you should be able to download this to a local directory.
Determine the path to your xml binary (i.e. know where you downloaded it to)
and pass the path where the quotation marks are


I install it but the message is:

install.packages("~/Documents/TESIS/XML/INDEX", repos = NULL)
Error in install.packages : type == "both" cannot be used with 'repos = NULL'

I expected you to list the tgz file , and I'd assume you dont need to play with repos, since it's a local file
