Telethon Kids Institute R markdown templates

A pair of templates have been created that incorporate styling themes present throughout Telethon Kid’s style guide, web page and template documents. Currently, templates are available to produce stand-alone HTML reports and ioslides presentations. These templates also include colour palates that will automatically reproduce Telethon Kids style in R graphics. A number of helper functions and data-sets are also available.

Getting started


The Telethon Kids Institute biometrics package can be installed with:

devtools::install_github("TelethonKids/biometrics", build_vignettes = TRUE)

Creating an new document

Once the biometrics package has been installed, the templates can be accessed through the New -> R markdown -> From template menu.

Using the template

Both templates have been created with R markdown and the normal syntax should be followed. Some specific instructions and examples are included in default documents. A cheat-sheet explaining how to use markdown in R has been prepared by R Studio.
