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
data.frame and provides sugar function
as_flextable() to convert several R objects to a flextable, such as an object return from
table() or a model.
set_flextable_defaults( font.family = "Arial", font.size = 10, border.color = "gray") flextable(head(cars)) %>% bold(part = "header") %>% add_footer_lines("The 'cars' dataset") ggplot2::diamonds |> with(table(cut, color)) |> as_flextable()
Tables can be embedded within HTML, PDF, Word and PowerPoint documents from R Markdown documents and within RTF or Microsoft Word or PowerPoint documents with package officer. Tables can also be rendered as R plots or graphic files (png).
flextable object is a data.frame representation. An API is available to let R users create tables for reporting and control their formatting properties and their layout. The package provides functions that give control over:
- header, body and footer content
- text, paragraphs, cells and border formatting of any element
- displayed values
The package also offers a set of high-level functions that allow tabular reporting of statistical models and the creation of complex cross tabulations.
