Introduction to condformat

Quickstart

condformat prints a data frame with cells formatted according to several rules or criteria. It is integrated with the RStudio Viewer or a web browser, and it supports knitr and rmarkdown outputs using both HTML and PDF (\(\LaTeX\)) output formats. Other formats are not supported, although patches to enable them are welcome.

Basic syntax

Its syntax should be familiar to ggplot users.

condformat(a_data_frame) +          # A data frame to print
  rule_fill_discrete(ColumnA) +     # Add formatting rules to the data frame
  rule_fill_gradient(ColumnB)

Example:

data(iris)
library(condformat)
condformat(iris[c(1:5,70:75, 120:125),]) +
  rule_fill_discrete(Species) + 
  rule_fill_discrete(Sepal.Width, Sepal.Length,
                     expression = Sepal.Width > Sepal.Length - 2.25,
                     colours = c("TRUE" = "#7D00FF")) + 
  rule_fill_gradient2(Petal.Length)
