rmd: Easily Install and Load the R Markdown Family

Project Status: Active - The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed. CRAN_Status_Badge CRAN Downloads GitHub forks GitHub stars


Since 'rmarkdown' and 'knitr', more and more members (rticles, bookdown, mindr...) have been joining the R Markdown family. The installation and maintenance becomes annoying. With 'rmd' you can easily install and load them. Furthermore, 'rmd' provides a RStudio addin to explore the R Markdown family.

Forget R, and enjoy the wonderful world of R Markdown.

Quick start


When you install 'rmd', the R Markdown family members are installed in one single step:

# stable version:
# or development version:


>> Loading required package: rmd

>>blogdown     0.10mindr        1.1.10
>>rticles      0.6bookdownplus 1.5.4 


'rmd' provides an RStudio addin. Click the 'Addins' button on the tool bar and find 'R Markdown Family' under 'RMD'. A table of suggested R markdown packages will pop out. A package in a green row has already been installed. Click a row to install or remove the package.
