Percentile

A simple macro preprocessor for templating purposes

This function expands a template based on the R expressions in {{}} (this tag can be customized by the delim argument). These expressions are extracted, evaluated and replaced by their values in the original template.

Usage
knit_expand(file, ..., text = readLines(file, warn = FALSE), delim = c("{{", "}}"))
Arguments
file

the template file

...

a list of variables to be used for the code in the template; note the variables will be searched in the parent frame as well

text

an alternative way to file to specify the template code directly (if provided, file will be ignored)

delim

the (opening and ending) delimiters for the templating tags

Value

A character vector, with the tags evaluated and replaced by their values.
