I’m very pleased to announce the release of reports : An R package to assist in the workflow of writing academic articles and other reports.
This is the first CRAN release of reports: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/reports/index.html
The reports package assists in writing reports and presentations by providing a frame work that brings together existing R, LaTeX/.docx and Pandoc tools. The package is designed to be used with RStudio, MiKTex/Tex Live/LibreOffice, knitr, knitcitations, Pandoc and pander (and installr for Windows users). The user will want to download these free programs/packages to maximize the effectiveness of the reports package. Functions with two letter names are general text formatting functions for copying text from articles for inclusion as a citation.
Github development version: https://github.com/trinker/reports
As reports is further developed the following are planned: (a) a help video section and (b) a vignette detailing workflow and use of reports.
