I have just released a new version of pander to CRAN with some minor fixes and some (hopefully) useful new features to generate markdown tables beside other tools:

  • although I really love the Droid Sans font that I used to bundle with the package, I decided to ditch it to save some space (50% of the package size),
  • I have also updated the parameters passed to Pandoc while generating HTML to be able to create self-contained files (all images, CSS and JS would be shipped within one file) that can be uploaded or e-mailed a lot easier compared to complex directory structures,
  • Andrew Redd helped me to improve pander to be an alternative method for vignetteEngine,
  • and I got some great feature requests to tweak e.g. the linear model outputs:
> panderOptions('table.split.table', Inf)
> pander(lm(Sepal.Width ~ Species + Sepal.Length, data = iris), covariate.labels = c('Sepal Length'), omit = 'Species', summary = TRUE)

               Estimate   Std. Error   t value   Pr(>|t|) 
------------------ ---------- ------------ --------- ----------
 **Sepal Length**    0.3499      0.0463      7.557   4.187e-12 

 **(Intercept)**     1.677       0.2354      7.123   4.456e-11 

 Observations   Residual Std. Error   $R^2$   Adjusted $R^2$ 
-------------- --------------------- ------- ----------------
     150               0.289         0.5693       0.5604     

Table: Fitting linear model: Sepal.Width ~ Species + Sepal.Length
