Markdown rendering for R

Share:

Description

Markdown is a plain-text formatting syntax that can be converted to XHTML or other formats. This package provides R bindings to the Sundown (https://github.com/vmg/sundown) markdown rendering library.

Details

The R function markdownToHTML renders a markdown file to HTML (respecting the specified markdownExtensions and markdownHTMLOptions).

The package also exports the underlying Sundown C extension API which enables creating and calling custom renderers using the renderMarkdown function.
