Usage

draft(file, template, package = NULL, create_dir = "default", edit = TRUE)

Arguments

file

File name for the draft

Template to use as the basis for the draft. This is either the full path to a template directory or the name of a template directory within the rmarkdown/templates directory of a package.

package

(Optional) Name of package where the template is located.

create_dir

TRUE to create a new directory for the document (the "default" setting leaves this behavior up to the creator of the template).

edit

Details

The draft function creates new R Markdown documents based on templates that are either located on the filesystem or within an R package. The template and its supporting files will be copied to the location specified by file.
