Installation

If you want to install the latest development version use the devtools package to install the rmarkdown and knitr (devel) prerequisites and this package.

library(devtools)
install_github('rstudio/rmarkdown')
install.packages('knitr', repos = c('http://rforge.net', 'http://cran.rstudio.org'),
                 type = 'source')
install_github('jimhester/knitrBootstrap')

You can install the latest released version from CRAN. Typically lags behind latest by a good amount.

install.packages('knitrBootstrap')

Usage

Knitr Bootstrap includes a knitrBootstrap::bootstrap_document custom rendering function for use with the Rmarkdown package.

RStudio

Very current versions of RStudio use the render function when you press the "Knit" button. In order to output using knitrBootstrap use the YAML front-matter in your document.

YAML Front-matter

You can also specify the bootstrap_document function as an output type along with the options in the YAML front-matter directly in your Rmd file. All of the global Package Options can be specified in the front matter.

---
output:
  knitrBootstrap::bootstrap_document:
    title: "Test file"
    theme: amelia
    highlight: sunburst
    theme.chooser: TRUE
    highlight.chooser: TRUE
---

Render Function

You can also simply call the render function by itself.

library(knitrBootstrap)
library(rmarkdown)
render('file.Rmd', 'knitrBootstrap::bootstrap_document')

Vim

Using the Vim-R-Plugin put the following function in your .vimrc to create the file directly with knitr and the markdown package

function! RMakeHTML_2()
  update
  call RSetWD()
  let filename = expand("%:r:t")
  let rcmd = "require('knitrBootstrap');\
    render(\"" . filename . ".Rmd\", knitrBootstrap::bootstrap_document)"
  if g:vimrplugin_openhtml
    let rcmd = rcmd . '; browseURL("' . filename . '.html")'
  endif
  call g:SendCmdToR(rcmd)
endfunction

"bind RMakeHTML_2 to leader kk
nnoremap <silent> <Leader>kk :call RMakeHTML_2()<CR>

Makefile

You can use the included Makefile to generate html reports from Rmd files from the command line. If you have a file file.Rmd and you want to create file.html use

#standard
make file.html

#with bootstrap style chooser
make THEME_CHOOSER=TRUE file.html

#with code style chooser
make HIGHLIGHT_CHOOSER=TRUE file.html

#with both
make HIGHLIGHT_CHOOSER=TRUE THEME_CHOOSER=TRUE file.html

#standalone
make file_inline.html
