Individual R Markdown PDF Templates.

Lifecycle: experimental R build status Coverage status CRAN status

indiedown allows you to generate a customized R Markdown PDF template in a few basic steps.

Start by installing indiedown:


You can also install the development version from GitHub:

# install.packages("devtools")

To create your own customized R Markdown template, start by creating an indiedown template package, called mydown in this example. Navigate to the directory where you want to create the package, then:


This creates a package skeleton in the new mydown directory in the current working directory. You can build mydown, using “Build and Reload” in the RStudio or via the command line, as follows:


With mydown built and installed, our new template is available in RStudio (after a restart).
