Knit multiple tables in a single R Markdown chunk.

markdownTables(list, captions = NULL, force = FALSE)

Arguments

list

Named list. Must contain data that can be coerced to data.frame.

captions

character or NULL. Captions. If NULL, the names of the primary input list will be used automatically.

force

logical(1). Force knit output using knitr::asis_output(). Recommended for development and unit testing only.

Value

  • knit call: asis_output

  • Otherwise: list.

Note

knitr::kable() now supports multiple tables as a list for the x argument, but it still only supports a single caption. markdownTables extends this functionality, but supporting captions for each table.
