datalorax/slidex: Convert Microsoft PowerPoint Slides to R Markdown

This package is designed to extract information from Microsoft PowerPoint slides, and then put that information into an R Markdown document with a {xaringan} <> YAML. If the xaringan package is also installed, beautiful html slides can then be produced by knitting the RMD. At present, the package exports one function, `convert_pptx`, which converts a .pptx file to R Markdown. The package is not intended to be all encompassing or provide perfect conversion. Rather, it should get you about 90% of the way there for about 80% of use cases. Given the idiosyncrasies of different slide show presentations, it is expected that some manual editing of the resulting RMD will need to be completed to get the HTML slides to look exactly as you want them, but most of the hard work should be done for you. Importantly, the package maintains and provides the proper code for any images that were embedded in the .pptx slides, as well as links. Tables are also generally maintained, although they may require some manual editing if complex spanner heads and merged cells were used in the original table. Nested bulleted lists should also be maintained.
