The flextable package provides a framework for easily create tables for reporting and publications. Tables can be embedded within:

  • R Markdown documents with support for HTML, Word and PowerPoint documents.
  • Microsoft Word or PowerPoint documents.
  • PDF documents with package pagedown (it’s only HTML)

Tables can also be rendered as R plots or graphic files (png, pdf and jpeg).

Getting Started

An API is available to let R users create tables for reporting and control their formatting properties and their layout. A flextable object is a data.frame representation, it can be manipulated with functions that give control over:

  • header, body and footer content
  • text, paragraphs, cells and border formatting of any element
  • displayed values

There are articles on the flextable website that will help you get you to start quickly:

Bug reports

When you file a bug report, please spend some time making it easy for me to follow and reproduce. The more time you spend on making the bug report coherent, the more time I can dedicate to investigate the bug as opposed to the bug report.

Contributing to the package development

A great way to start is to contribute an example or improve the documentation.

If you want to submit a Pull Request to integrate functions of yours, please provide:

  • the new function(s) with code and roxygen tags (with examples)
  • a new section in the appropriate vignette that describes how to use the new function
  • corresponding tests in directory tests/testthat.

By using rhub (run rhub::check_for_cran()), you will see if everything is ok. When submitted, the PR will be evaluated automatically on travis and appveyor and you will be able to see if something broke.
