Easily automate the following tasks to describe data frames: Summarise the distributions, and labelled missings of variables graphically and using descriptive statistics. For surveys, compute and summarise reliabilities (internal consistencies, retest, multilevel) for psychological scales. Combine this information with metadata (such as item labels and labelled values) that is derived from R attributes. To do so, the package relies on 'rmarkdown' partials, so you can generate HTML, PDF, and Word documents. Codebooks are also available as tables (CSV, Excel, etc.) and in JSON-LD, so that search engines can find your data and index the metadata. The metadata are also available at your fingertips via RStudio Addins.
Use 'rmarkdown' partials, also know as child documents in 'knitr', so you can make components for HTML, PDF, and Word documents. The package provides various helper functions to make certain functions easier. You may want to use this package, if you want to flexibly summarise objects using a combination of figures, tables, text, and HTML widgets. Unlike HTML widgets, the output is Markdown and can hence be turn into other output formats than HTML.
Survey systems and other third-party data sources commonly use non-standard representations of logical values when it comes to qualitative data - "Yes", "No" and "N/A", say. batman is a package designed to seamlessly convert these into logicals. It is highly localised, and contains equivalents to boolean values in languages including German, French, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Chinese and Polish.
Convert R Markdown documents into a variety of formats.
