The flextable package provides a framework for easily create tables for reporting and publications. Tables can be easily formatted with a set of verbs such as
color(), they can receive a header of more than one line, cells can be merged or contain an image. The package make it possible to build any table for publication from a
set_flextable_defaults( font.family = "Arial", font.size = 10, border.color = "gray") flextable(head(cars)) %>% bold(part = "header") %>% add_footer_lines("The 'cars' dataset")
Tables can be embedded within HTML, PDF, Word and PowerPoint documents from R Markdown documents and within Microsoft Word or PowerPoint documents with package officer. Tables can also be rendered as R plots or graphic files (png, pdf and jpeg).
