pandocfilters: Pandoc Filters for R

The document converter 'pandoc' <> is widely used in the R community. One feature of 'pandoc' is that it can produce and consume JSON-formatted abstract syntax trees (AST). This allows to transform a given source document into JSON-formatted AST, alter it by so called filters and pass the altered JSON-formatted AST back to 'pandoc'. This package provides functions which allow to write such filters in native R code. Although this package is inspired by the Python package 'pandocfilters' <>, it provides additional convenience functions which make it simple to use the 'pandocfilters' package as a report generator. Since 'pandocfilters' inherits most of it's functionality from 'pandoc' it can create documents in many formats (for more information see <>) but is also bound to the same limitations as 'pandoc'.

Install the latest version of this package by entering the following in R:
