The problem isn't with quantmod::getSymbols. The problem is that
R-Fiddle (apparently) does not allow code to create temporary
files/directories in the usual way.  So any code that requires
temporary files/directories won't work with R-Fiddle.

So you need to contact them and ask why it doesn't work.
