knit2html {knitr}R Documentation

Convert markdown to HTML using knit() and markdownToHTML()

Description

This is a convenience function to knit the input markdown source and call markdownToHTML() in the markdown package to convert the result to HTML.

Usage

knit2html(input, output = NULL, ..., envir = parent.frame(), text = NULL, quiet = FALSE, 
    encoding = getOption("encoding"), force_v1 = FALSE)

Arguments

input

Path to the input file.

output

Path to the output file for knit(). If NULL, this function will try to guess a default, which will be under the current working directory.

...

Options passed to markdownToHTML.

envir

Environment in which code chunks are to be evaluated, for example, parent.frame(), new.env(), or globalenv()).

text

A character vector. This is an alternative way to provide the input file.

quiet

Boolean; suppress the progress bar and messages?

encoding

Encoding of the input file; see file.

force_v1

Boolean; whether to force rendering the input document as an R Markdown v1 document, even if it is for v2.

Value

If the argument text is NULL, a character string (HTML code) is returned; otherwise the result is written into a file and the filename is returned.

Note

The markdown package is for R Markdown v1, which is much less powerful than R Markdown v2, i.e. the rmarkdown package (http://rmarkdown.rstudio.com). To render R Markdown v2 documents to HTML, please use rmarkdown::render() instead.
