use_readme_rmd: Create README files

Description Usage Arguments See Also Examples

View source: R/readme.R

Description

Creates skeleton README files with sections for

Use Rmd if you want a rich intermingling of code and output. Use md for a basic README. README.Rmd will be automatically added to .Rbuildignore. The resulting README is populated with default YAML frontmatter and R fenced code blocks (md) or chunks (Rmd).

If you use Rmd, you'll still need to render it regularly, to keep README.md up-to-date. devtools::build_readme() is handy for this. You could also use GitHub Actions to re-render README.Rmd every time you push. An example workflow can be found in the examples/ directory here: https://github.com/r-lib/actions/.
