{emayili} Message Precedence

October 5, 2021 | R - datawookie

Sometimes you need to have a message delivered immediately. Other times it doesn’t matter when it’s delivered. Similarly, you might want the recipient to read a message right now! Or you may not really care when they read it. To address both of these scenarios I have added ...

{emayili} Message Integrity

October 4, 2021 | R - datawookie

How can you be sure that the contents of an email haven’t been tampered with? The best approach would probably be to have a digital signature on each component of the message. Perhaps I’ll look at integrating that into {emayili} some time in the future. However, today I’...

Working with Really Wide Data

October 3, 2021 | R - datawookie

The concept of “wide data” is relative. In some domains 100 columns is considered “wide”, while in others that’s perfectly normal and you’d need to have thousands (or tens of thousands!) of columns for it to be considered even remotely “wide”. The data that we work with at Fathom ...

{emayili} Styling Figures

September 23, 2021 | R - datawookie

By default tags are wrapped in a tight embrace by {knitr}. In general this works really well. However, I want to have more control over image formatting for {emayili}. Adding a Hook I’d like to have the tags wrapped by . It’d also be useful to have the option ...

{emayili} Right-to-Left

September 23, 2021 | R - datawookie

Yoav Raskin suggested that it would be useful to support right-to-left (RTL) text in {emayili}, so that languages like Hebrew, Arabic and Aramaic would render properly. I’ll be honest, this was not something that I had previously considered. But agreed, it would be a cool feature. library(emayili) packageVersion("...

{emayili} Managing CSS

September 21, 2021 | R - datawookie

I love the clean simplicity of an R Markdown document. But sometimes it can feel a little bare and utilitarian. This is especially the case if it’s rendered into the body of an email. How about injecting a little more pizzazz? library(emayili) Check on the installed version. packageVersion("...

{emayili} R Markdown Parameters

September 19, 2021 | R - datawookie

I don’t frequently use parameters in R Markdown documents. So the initial implementation of render() in {emayili} did not cater for them. A small tweak makes it possible though. You can install the update from GitHub as follows. remotes::install_github("datawookie/emayili", ref = "v0.5.2") Then load the package. ...

{emayili} Rendering R Markdown

September 16, 2021 | R - datawookie

In a previous post I documented a new feature in {emayili}, the ability to render Plain Markdown directly into the body of an email message. Today I’m announcing the release of a new minor version, 0.5.0, in which {emayili} is now able to render R Markdown into an email. This ...
