Convert to a markdown document

Format for converting from R Markdown to another variant of markdown (e.g. strict markdown or github flavored markdown)

Usage
md_document(variant = "markdown_strict", preserve_yaml = FALSE,
  toc = FALSE, toc_depth = 3, fig_width = 7, fig_height = 5,
  fig_retina = NULL, dev = "png", df_print = "default",
  includes = NULL, md_extensions = NULL, pandoc_args = NULL)
Arguments
variant

Markdown variant to produce (defaults to "markdown_strict"). Other valid values are "markdown_github", "markdown_mmd", markdown_phpextra", or even "markdown" (which produces pandoc markdown). You can also compose custom markdown variants, see the pandoc online documentation for details.

preserve_yaml

Preserve YAML front matter in final document.

toc

TRUE to include a table of contents in the output

toc_depth

Depth of headers to include in table of contents

fig_width

Default width (in inches) for figures

fig_height

Default height (in inches) for figures

fig_retina

Scaling to perform for retina displays. Defaults to NULL which performs no scaling. A setting of 2 will work for all widely used retina displays, but will also result in the output of <img> tags rather than markdown images due to the need to set the width of the image explicitly.

dev

Graphics device to use for figure output (defaults to png)

df_print

Method to be used for printing data frames. Valid values include "default", "kable", "tibble", and "paged". The "default" method uses print.data.frame. The "kable" method uses the knitr::kable function. The "tibble" method uses the tibble package to print a summary of the data frame. The "paged" method creates a paginated HTML table (note that this method is only valid for formats that produce HTML). In addition to the named methods you can also pass an arbitrary function to be used for printing data frames. You can disable the df_print behavior entirely by setting the option rmarkdown.df_print to FALSE.

includes

Named list of additional content to include within the document (typically created using the includes function).

md_extensions

Markdown extensions to be added or removed from the default definition or R Markdown. See the rmarkdown_format for additional details.

pandoc_args

Additional command line options to pass to pandoc

Details

See the online documentation for additional details on using the md_document format.

R Markdown documents can have optional metadata that is used to generate a document header that includes the title, author, and date. For more details see the documentation on R Markdown metadata.
