This PR provides a solution to #903 and #892 as as a side effect.

@jjallaire I used "output_files" as you suggested. Feel free to suggest changes, although I do not have much more time to devote to this.


  • render_site understands the output_files field in the _site.yml. If output_files is missing
    it uses the Rmd file with the same name. Example of output_files field:
   src: "flights_analysis.Rmd"
     flight_type: "domestic"
   src: "flights_analysis.Rmd"
     flight_type: "international"
  • The output_files feature can be used as well to set as source for an html file a R script that will be spinned:
   src: "flights_analysis.R"
  • render_site also understands the autospin field in _site.yml. If autospin: true is set, render_site will render all R scripts spinning them first. (closes #892)

  • Tests have been enhanced a bit to cover these features and documentation has been added as well to the ?render_site man page.

I already signed the contribution agreement when I submitted my previous PR (#647)

Comments, patches and merges are very welcome

render_site compatibility with Rmd params.
render_site understands the `output_files` field in the `_site.yml` file to
describe which source file should an html file use and give Rmd parameters
if needed. (closes #903)

The output_files feature can be used as well to set as source for an html file
a R script that will be spinned.

This commit also adds a `autospin` field in `_site.yml` that, if set to `true`
will render all the `R` scripts spinning them first (closes #892)
