Details

This package is a wrapper for the pdf function. A temporary file is created by pdf, acting as normal graphical device. After plotting, when dev.off is called, the file is closed, uploaded to imguR and a URL of the files location is returned. In the case of multipaged pdfs being uploaded, imguR automatically concatenates them into a single image.

Value

An object of class “imgur_device” to be passed to imgur_off.
