Want to add some GIFs to your awesome rmarkdown presentation?



I guess this is one of the least productive R packages in our community...

No more to say. Enjoy more GIFs in your Rmarkdown documents.




# For dev version


If you are using a recent version of RStudio (v0.99.878 or later), you should be able to find an "Addins" dropdown menu on the toolbar. This package comes with a RStudio Addin called "Add GIFs", which has a user friendly interface you can use to browse, download or insert GIFs or links to a rmarkdown document.

For useRs who are not using RStudio, I'm planning to include a stand-alone shiny app that can be run directly in the console in the next release.


I'm currently using the public beta key for the Giphy API. They say there is a rate limit. I will request a Production key if needed.

Also, I noticed that after GIPHY made some API change recently (the link is no longer point directly to a .gif file but a web page), GIF images can't be seen correctly on some old versions of RStudio. You might need to update your RStudio version if it occurs to you.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
