## 'RStudio' Addins for Show Outline of a R Markdown/'LaTeX' Project

'RStudio' allows to show and navigate for the outline of a R Markdown file, but not for R Markdown projects with multiple files. For this reason, I have developed several 'RStudio' addins capable of show project outline. Each addin is specialized in showing projects of different types: R Markdown project, 'bookdown' package project and 'LaTeX' project. There is a configuration file that allows you to customize additional searches.

The goal of "addinsOutline" is to facilitate navigation through the files that constitute a R Markdown, LaTeX or other project.

This 'RStudio' addins will show a list of the different sections established in the project and clicking on any element shown in the list will cause 'RStudio' to show that section by opening the file that contains it if it was not already open previously.

In addition, by modifying the configuration file "addinsOutline_ini.txt" that can be copied to the project folder, not only the sections could be searched, but it could also be located for example: tables created with knitr::kable(), graphics inserted with knitr::insert_graphics(), labels created with \label in documents LaTeX, etc.

There are different functions to activate the addins corresponding to the type of project:

• run_addinsOutline_Rmd(): R Markdown projects
• run_addinsOutline_Rmd_bookdown(): Bookdown projects (select the file _bookdown.yml or index.Rmd)
• run_addinsOutline_tex(): LaTeX projects

## Installation

You can install the released version of addinsOutline from CRAN with:

install.packages("addinsOutline")

# For dev version


## Example

This is a basic example which shows you how activate the Addins for R Markdown projects:

library(addinsOutline)


The default AddinsOutline is displayed in an external browser (see "shiny::browserViewer"), but can be configured to act as a dialogue in 'RStudio' (see "shiny::dialogViewer") or in the "Viewer" panel of RStudio (see "shiny::paneViewer"). It can be customized by modifying the "addinsOutline" option as follows:

• "dialogViewer"

options("addinsOutline"="dialog")

• "paneViewer"

options("addinsOutline"="pane")

• "browserViewer" (default)

options("addinsOutline"="browser")


The next code will copy the configuration file "addinsOutline_ini.txt" to the current working directory

copy_file_config_ini_new()
