R package spAddins

spAddins is an R package that provides a set of RStudio addins which are designed to be used in combination with user-defined RStudio keyboard shortcuts. These addins either:

  1. format text in R Markdown documents:
    • enclose either selected text or selected rows with special symbols and text gets inerpreted in a special way when rendered with R Markdown (e.g., converts "bold" into "**bold**" that is interpreted as "bold").
  2. insert text (e.g., operators %>%, <<-, %$%) at the cursor position;
  3. replace symbols in selected pieces of text (e.g., convert backslashes to forward slashes which results in strings like "c:\data\" converted into "c:/data/").
