Template for creating an R markdown document with an emphasis on typography

ipsum(number_sections = FALSE, fig_width = 7, fig_height = 5,
  fig_retina = if (!fig_caption) 2, fig_caption = FALSE, dev = "png",
  smart = TRUE, self_contained = TRUE, highlight = "default",
  mathjax = "default", extra_dependencies = NULL, css = NULL,
  includes = NULL, keep_md = FALSE, lib_dir = NULL,
  md_extensions = NULL, pandoc_args = NULL, toc = FALSE,
  toc_depth = 2, ...)



TRUE to number section headings


Default width (in inches) for figures


Default height (in inches) for figures


Scaling to perform for retina displays (defaults to 2, which currently works for all widely used retina displays). Set to NULL to prevent retina scaling. Note that this will always be NULL when keep_md is specified (this is because fig_retina relies on outputting HTML directly into the markdown document).


TRUE to render figures with captions


Graphics device to use for figure output (defaults to png)


Produce typographically correct output, converting straight quotes to curly quotes, --- to em-dashes, -- to en-dashes, and ... to ellipses.


Produce a standalone HTML file with no external dependencies, using data: URIs to incorporate the contents of linked scripts, stylesheets, images, and videos. Note that even for self contained documents MathJax is still loaded externally (this is necessary because of its size).


Syntax highlighting style. Supported styles include "default", "tango", "pygments", "kate", "monochrome", "espresso", "zenburn", "haddock", and "textmate". Pass NULL to prevent syntax highlighting.


Include mathjax. The "default" option uses an https URL from a MathJax CDN. The "local" option uses a local version of MathJax (which is copied into the output directory). You can pass an alternate URL or pass NULL to exclude MathJax entirely.

extra_dependencies, ...

Additional function arguments to pass to the base R Markdown HTML output formatter


One or more css files to include


Named list of additional content to include within the document (typically created using the includes function).


Keep the markdown file generated by knitting.


Directory to copy dependent HTML libraries (e.g. jquery, bootstrap, etc.) into. By default this will be the name of the document with _files appended to it.


Markdown extensions to be added or removed from the default definition or R Markdown. See the rmarkdown_format for additional details.
