We are extremely excited to have our first release of the gt package available in CRAN! The name gt is short for “grammar of tables” and the goal of gt is similar to that of ggplot2, serving to not just to make it easy to make specific tables, but to describe a set of underlying components that can be recombined in different ways to solve different problems. If you ever need to make beautiful customized display tables, I think you’ll find gt is up to the task. Read more →

Announcing the R Markdown Book

2018-07-13 Yihui Xie
It is exciting for us to see the amazing growth of the R Markdown ecosystem over the four years since the creation of R Markdown in 2014. Now you can author many types of documents, and build a wide range of applications based on R Markdown. As an effort to unite and improve the documentation of the R Markdown base package (rmarkdown) and several other extensions (such as bookdown, blogdown, pkgdown, flexdashboard, tufte, xaringan, rticles, and learnr) in one place, we authored a book titled “R Markdown: The Definitive Guide”, which is to be published by Chapman & Hall/CRC in about two weeks.
