Installation

Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Examples/Usage

<const>
print=Calculation
value1=10
value2=30
value3=%RANDOM%
 
formular=(value1 * value2) + (value3 / 2)
result:formular
</const>
 
  * Value 1 = %%value1%%
  * Value 2 = %%value2%%
  * Value 3 = %%value3%%
 
%%print%% => %%formular%% = %%result%%

Results in:

  • Value 1 = 10
  • Value 2 = 30
  • Value 3 = 30130

Calculation ⇒ (value1 * value2) + (value3 / 2) = 15365

Syntax

  1. define anywhere in your page a <const></const> Block.
  2. with variable=string you can assign a string to the variable. You can also assign a constant to a variable.
  3. with result:formular you can execute a formular and store the result in the result variable. Inside the formular constants and earlier defined variables are allowed.
  4. to display a variable on the page, use %%variable%%

Available constants are:

constants description
%ID% pageid noNS(cleanID(getID()))
%NAMESPACE% namespace getNS(cleanID(getID()))
%RANDOM% random number strval(rand())
%USER% username
%YEAR% year date(“Y”)

Known Bugs and Issues

2014-03-18 This plugin works for me. But the section editing does not work anymore. I mean if you have some headlines, you can edit each headline separatly. If you do so, the headline gets corrupted. I think, the culculation of the position of the headline is wrong.
can anyone fix this? Thanx.

Can you try the development version. If this does't help, please open a bug report on github and list your dokuwiki plugins. — lispslisps

FAQ

Discussion

This plugin doesn't work at all, is buggy and useless. Anyway, what is the reason for this trivial syntax component?

It is not helpful to anyone to write that this plugin is buggy without specifying what the bugs are. Can you please be more specific in order to help the author (and other users) identify any issues?
If you don't see a reason for the plugin you are free to not use it. — Anika HenkeAnika Henke

To be plain: The “comment” above doesn't work at all, is buggy and useless. Anyway, what is the reason for this trivial blah-blah?
This plugin conflicts with edittable: If const (Development snapshot) is used in a table, we can not edit the table without destroying the contents. — Michael KohnMichael Kohn

Would it be possible to use differently named constants? (Like crosssection_mm or Volume_L instead of value1 and value2) ? This would make the formulas much more easy to read… Anyway, thanks for your great work so far Ocko / 20.03 (?? How can I automatically sign in DK, like ~~~~ in MW?)

Just noticed it works, but only if you write everything in small letters, w/o special chars…!

Can we control the decimals somehow?

Good time of day! Can i use const plugin with include plugin? I want to use some variables in include page, but it's rendered as %variable% on final page…

The const variables are only relevant for the pages where they are defined. You can create a issue on github and i can have a look if I have time.
