Reporting with R Markdown
R Markdown is an easy-to-use formatting language for authoring dynamic reports from R code.
R Markdown is an easy to use formatting language you can use to reveal insights from data and author your findings as a PDF, HTML file, or Shiny app. In this course, you’ll learn how to create and modify each element of a Markdown file, including the code, text, and metadata. You’ll analyze data with dplyr, create visualizations with ggplot2, and author your analyses and plots as reports. You’ll gain hands-on experience of building reports as you work with real-world data from the International Finance Corporation (IFC)—learning how to efficiently organize reports using code chunk options, create lists and tables, and include a table of contents. By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills you need to add your brand’s fonts and colors using parameters and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), to make your reports stand out.
