rmarkdown 2.12 Unreleased

  • Added a global option rmarkdown.html_dependency.header_attr (TRUE by default). It can be set to FALSE to opt-out the HTML dependency html_dependency_header_attrs() in documents based on html_document_base() (thanks, @salim-b rstudio/bookdown#865, @maelle r-lib/downlit#1538).

  • draft() now works with devtools::load_all() and testthat when used in other packages.

rmarkdown 2.11 2021-09-14

  • Relative paths in parent directories in the css argument of html_document() were incorrectly normalized to absolute paths by #2095 in v2.8. Now relative paths in parent directories will no longer be converted to absolute paths (thanks, @daijiang, yihui/xaringan#331).

  • It is possible to specify the version of jQuery via a global option now, e.g., options(rmarkdown.jquery.version = 2) (note that the default major version is 3). This is mainly for advanced users and developers to test different versions of jQuery.

  • pandoc_citeproc_convert() now handles correctly bib file containing specific UTF-8 characters on non default UTF-8 systems like Windows (thanks, @mitchelloharawild, #2195).

  • Shiny prerendered documents are now pre-rendered in a child environment to avoid allowing the results of static code chunks to exist in the Shiny app environment (@gadenbuie, #2203).

  • The previously unexported function convert_ipynb() is exported now (thanks, @acircleda).

rmarkdown 2.10 2021-08-06

  • md_document() will now handle correctly preserve_yaml value for all variants and all pandoc versions (#2190).

    • with preserve_yaml = TRUE, markdown output will keep the YAML metadata block from the Rmd file.
    • with preserve_yaml = FALSE, markdown output will have no YAML metadata block.

    This fixes a breaking change in Pandoc 2.13 regarding gfm, commonmark and commonmark_x which now supports yaml_metadata_block by default (#2118).

  • New supported syntax for Shiny prerendered documents: you can now use server: shiny or server: type: shiny.

  • Ability to inject additional functions into Shiny prerendered server scope using the “server-extras” context.

  • Fixed the syntax highlighting issue with R’s pipe operator |> (thanks, @edzer, rstudio/bookdown#1157).

rmarkdown 2.9 2021-06-15

  • Fix a regression in version 2.8 when a url is used in css argument (thanks, @vnijs, #2163).

  • All HTML dependencies are now correctly supported, included those with only an href component but not file component in their src attribute. Previously, rmarkdown would throw the error 'path for html_dependency not provided' when rendering documents containing HTML dependencies with href components (thanks, @crazycapivara, @matthewstrasiotto, #1805, #1948, #2151).

  • Fix an error thrown with output format using a file_scope function (like in bookdown) (thanks, @rfaelens, #2149).

  • Fix an issue with copy_ressource = TRUE in html_document_base where very long HTML documents were truncated during post processing (thanks, @oliviermeslin, #2145).

  • When run()-ing a runtime: shiny document, an extra temp folder will be used in the output path. With the extra temp random folder in the path, predictable output file names may be used. (#2137)

  • When run()-ing a runtime: shiny document with a bslib theme, the global theme value wasn’t being restored properly. (#2160)

  • Floating ToC in html_document can now hide headings with unnumbered and unlisted classes (thanks, @atusy, #1993).

  • Fix prefix handling in R Markdown website’s navbar for Fontawesome V5 and compatibility with V4. For icon only available in V5, the full prefix + name should be use, especially with new fab prefix (e.g. fab fa-r-project). If no prefix is used (e.g fa-home instead of fas fa-home), the fa prefix will be added for V4 compatibility as it has been deprecated in V5. We advice to use the full prefix + name for icons following Fontawesome documentation. (#1994)

  • rmarkdown::site_generator() can hang session waiting for input when the site field is not found in the YAML frontmatter of index.Rmd (thanks, @kevinushey @mirh, #2043).

rmarkdown 2.8 2021-05-07

  • Fix a issue with Pandoc 2.5 and latex-div.lua - documents can now be rendered as expected without error (thanks, @davidwales, #2121).

  • Fix an issue with styling and code folding button behavior when default is code-folding: show. The Button can now be correctly style according to state as aria-expanded attributes is correctly updated. Also, new classes has been added on the button to allow styling during transition: btn-collapsing and btn-expanding are respectively applied during transition Show to Hide and Hide to Show. (This follow Bootstrap behavior for the collapsible block) (thanks, @steveharoz, #2085).

  • Fix an issue with citation_package having no effect when using .md file as input to render() with latex and PDF output formats (thanks, @andrewheiss, #2113).

  • A new internal option rmarkdown.knit.ext has been added to control the extension of the intermediary knit output during a rendering. It defaults to md to produce *.knit.md. Only useful for very advanced usage (#2098).

  • render() won’t produce any *.utf8.md intermediary file anymore. This was a leftover from previous versions of rmarkdown. Since knitr 1.24 and rmarkdown 2.0, only UTF-8 input files are allowed. (#2098).

  • Fix an Invalid cross-device link error when tempdir() is used for intermediates_dir in render() (thanks, @gorgitko, #2096).

  • Fix a regression in HTML default template with floating toc incorrectly placed on small size window (thanks, @grimbough, #2071)

  • Provided a runtime: shiny fix for output formats that pass a modified bslib::bs_theme() object to html_document_base()’s theme (thanks, @cpsievert, #2049).

  • Rendering using runtime: shiny_prerendered or runtime: shinyrmd will now produce valid HTML by not inserting anymore the full document as body in the resulting shiny apps (thanks, @dakep, #1912). Header content usually containing html dependencies will be inserted in the HTML document at the end of the head before </head>, unless the rendered HTML contains <!-- HEAD_CONTENT --> special comment (see htmltools::renderDocument()). A new Pandoc variable is set in for shiny prerendered document to allow conditional insertion of such content in the the HTML template using $if(shiny-prerendered)$. This has been done in all HTML template in this package. Users of custom template should make this change to provide support for this runtime. See rmarkdown default template (default.html) for an example (#2064).

  • Added tectonic as a supported LaTeX engine for generating PDF output (thanks, @dpryan79, #2078). You can specify to use this by adding engine: "tectonic" to your output format in YAML, such as pdf_document.

  • When no output_format is provided in any way but an output_file is provided in render(), the default format will be determined based on the extension: "pdf_document" for .pdf, or "word_document" for .docx. Otherwise, it will be "html_document" as previous version (thanks, @pearsonca, #1569).

  • Added a new global option rmarkdown.render.message. When set FALSE, render() will not output the message starting by Output created: allowing RStudio IDE to open a preview of the document. This is useful for package developers that would need to emit there own output message for there custom format. See ?render_site for more info on this special message (#2092).

  • Internal changes regarding Lua filters. They have now an explicit Pandoc version minimal requirement: A filter will be skipped with a warning printed by the Lua filter if this requirement is not met. For now, all filters work for Pandoc 2.1 and above (thanks, @atusy, #2088). There is also now a new mechanism to have a share Lua filter script loadable by other Lua files: render() will set the RMARKDOWN_LUA_SHARED env var to the path of Lua filter shared.lua so that other filters can access functions defined in it using dofile(os.getenv 'RMARKDOWN_LUA_SHARED'). This is for internal usage only to avoid duplication (thanks, @tarleb, #2103).

  • html_document_base gains a css argument, to which html_document’s css argument is now passed. This also fix an issue when .sass or .scss files are used with this css argument when self_contained: FALSE. Moreover, sass caching mechanism can now be used when passing .sass or .scss files to the css argument (thanks, @cpsievert, #2095).

  • The fig_crop option of PDF document formats (such as pdf_document and beamer_presentation) supports the value "auto" now, which means fig_crop = TRUE when figure cropping tools pdfcrop and ghostscript are available.

  • The default value of the fig_crop option of PDF output formats has been changed from TRUE to "auto" (#2077).

  • rmarkdown::tufte_handout has been deprecated and will be removed in the future from this package. It has been moved to the tufte package since rmarkdown 0.9.5 (released on 2016-02-22). Please use tufte::tufte_handout instead.

rmarkdown 2.7 2021-02-19

  • html_document (and html_document_base)’s theme parameter now understands bslib::bs_theme() objects/arguments, meaning that one may opt-into Bootstrap 4 and more easily create custom themes. For examples, see https://github.com/rstudio/rmarkdown/pull/1706, and for context, see https://rstudio.github.io/bslib/ (thanks, @cpsievert, #1706).

  • Files with .scss/.sass extension (i.e., Sass files) provided to html_document’s css parameter are now compiled to CSS using the sass package. Also, if theme is a bslib object, these Sass files may utilize Sass code inside the theme (thanks, @cpsievert, #1706).

  • Fix an issue with line numbering in code chunks when .numberlines with Pandoc’s highlighting (thanks, @aosavi, #1876).

  • Fix an issue with shiny runtime and global.R (thanks, @liaojiahui-r, rstudio/flexdashboard#298).

  • Accept latex="{options}", latex=1, or latex=true for Latex Divs.

  • Add output_format_filter function to default_site_generator(). Enables custom site generators to customize or even entirely replace the output format right before rendering of each page.

  • Automatically exclude renv directory for render_site() (thanks, @jmbuhr, #1996)

  • Do not force options(htmltools.preserve.raw = TRUE) when this option has been set, otherwise it is impossible for other packages to turn this option off, e.g., yihui/xaringan#293.

  • knitr_options_pdf() will now throw a warning when fig_crop = TRUE but is disabled because required tools pdfcrop and/or ghostscript are missing (thanks, @netique, #2016).

  • Eliminated the unnecessary padding in code blocks in the html_document output with Bootstrap 4 themes (thanks, @atusy, #2019).

  • github_document() will produce a working TOC even if some headers start with number (#2039).

  • Fix an issue with knit_print.data.frame. The ... arguments are no more passed to print() to avoid passing knit_print() arguments options and encoding to custom print() methods (#2047).

rmarkdown 2.6 2020-12-14

  • Encoding is correctly handled now in html_vignette when checking for identical title and vignette index entry (thanks, @py-b, #1978).

  • clean_site() now default to preview = TRUE and will no more remove files without notice. This change will affect the “Clean All” button in the “Build” pane for website project. clean_site(preview = FALSE) must be run to effectively remove files (#1973).

  • The intermediate .tex file is now correctly deleted if keep_tex = FALSE when the R Markdown document is not rendered from the working directory (thanks, @vqv, #1308).

  • Fix a bug causing certain resources files to be deleted as intermediate files when intermediates_dir is the same as the input (thanks, @bellma-lilly, #1248).

  • Fix issues with anchor_sections = TRUE and learnr (thanks, @gadenbuie, #1938).

  • Enable use of server.R and global.R alongside runtime: shinyrmd documents.

  • pkg_file_lua() now works with devtools::load_all() and testthat when used in other packages.

  • Fix pandoc_convert(citeproc = TRUE) not supressing the --natbib or --biblatex options (thanks, @atusy, #1932).

  • pandoc-citeproc is now activated if a bibliography field is defined in another YAML block instead of the first YAML block (thanks, @bwiernik, #1364).

  • Specify that htmltools::htmlPreserve() should use the pandoc raw attribute rather than preservation tokens when pandoc >= v2.0. Note that this option will have the intended effect only for versions of htmltools >=

  • anchor_sections in html_documents() now defaults to FALSE. It was introduced in previous version with a default to TRUE, but it is reverted now after hearing feedbacks from the community (thank you!). The # is still used as the character for the anchor but you can easily change that using CSS rules. Examples have been added to the help page ?html_document.

  • Using Pandoc’s default for --email-obfuscation now. Previously, it was set to none explicitly, which is the default for Pandoc 1.17.2+ anyway. Only users with a Pandoc version before 1.17.2 may see a change in the content of the html source file produced if the document contains email addresses. This change allows to pass the Pandoc’s command line flag if you want to set it to another value (thanks,@seankross, #1969).

        pandoc_args: ["--email-obfuscation", "javascript"]

    See Pandoc’s manual for the meaning of this option.

  • Fix Fontawesome 5 icons in navbar by correctly handling new prefix as fa has been deprecated in favor of fas or fab (#1967)

rmarkdown 2.5 2020-10-21

  • Tables without header rows (wich can be possible in Pandoc’s simple table) are now formatted correctly when using html_document() format (thanks, @fkohrt, #1893).

  • html_document() gains the anchor_sections argument, which is TRUE by default, so that readers can get links to section headers easily—when you mouse over a section header, you will see a hash symbol # at the end of the header, which contains the anchor link to this header. You can click on this link and get the URL in the addres bar of your web browser, or right-click on it and copy the URL from the context menu. The hash symbol is defined by the CSS rule a.anchor-section::before {content: '#';}. You can customize it by overriding this rule (e.g., via the css argument of html_document) and use any other symbols or icons, e.g., content: "\02AD8;" (thanks, @atusy, #1884).

  • pkg_file_lua() should have thrown an error if the expected Lua file does not exist.

  • Provide files_dir and intermediates_dir as attributes on return from render() when run_pandoc = FALSE.

  • Supports new Pandoc 2.11 --citeproc flags usage instead of pandoc-citeproc external filter. pandoc_convert() and pandoc_citeproc_convert() will now use the correct flags according to the Pandoc version used. The logic is exported in pandoc_citeproc_args(). See Pandoc release note for more information about the new citeproc processing (#1916).

  • Fixed the code highlighting when code block is hidden. Previous version introduced a regression where non default code highlighting was still shown when code_folding is activated and code block is hidden (thanks, @matthewcarlucci, #1921).

  • The minimal required version for the xfun package (v0.15) has been specified for R Markdown Notebooks to work properly (thanks, @jmcphers, #1923).

  • Fixed a bug in convert_ipynb() when the language is not specified in the .ipynb file (thanks, @acca3003, #1925).

  • Introduce runtime: shinyrmd as a more user friendly alias for runtime: shiny_prerendered.

rmarkdown 2.4 2020-09-30

  • Lua filters handling has been improved internally with some user-facing changes (#1899):

    • New exported function pandoc_lua_filter_args() to return the Pandoc command-line argument to add a Lua filter.
    • New argument lua_filters in pandoc_options() to pass the Lua filter paths to use with a format. This allow output format authors to add filters for a custom format using the pandoc argument of output_format() and to get filters from a format using fmt$pandoc$lua_filters.
    • The Lua filters of an output format are now passed to Pandoc in render(). By default, they are passed to Pandoc before any other format-defined or user-defined Pandoc arguments (usually via the pandoc_args option of an output format). This ensures that filters of an output format are executed first. To change the default, you need to deal with it in a custom format (i.e., modify the elements in fmt$pandoc$lua_filters, such as reordering them).
    • New exported function pkg_file_lua() to get the full system path of a Lua filter included in a package source within the inst/rmarkdown/lua folder (thanks, @atusy, #1903).
  • Fixed the path separators for the css parameter in YAML frontmatter for HTML output files under Windows. Previously, forward slashes in css paths were converted to backslashes (thanks, @jonathan-g, #1862).

  • Since rmarkdown 1.16, Pandoc’s fenced Div’s are converted to LaTeX environments when the output format is LaTeX, e.g., ::: {.center data-latex=""} is converted to \begin{center}. The attribute data-latex of the Div was mandatory, even if it is empty. In rmarkdown 2.2, we silently drop this requirement, which means ::: {.center} is converted to \begin{center}. This turns out to be a bad idea, because users have no control over which Div’s to be converted to LaTeX environments. Previously, they could opt-in by the data-latex attribute, but with rmarkdown 2.3, all Div’s are converted to LaTeX environments unconditionally. What’s more, this change led to bugs like https://stackoverflow.com/q/62340425/559676 and https://github.com/rstudio/bookdown/issues/883. Therefore the data-latex attribute became mandatory again in this version. If the LaTeX environment does not need arguments, you may use data-latex="".

  • The two Lua fitlers pagebreak.lua and latex-div.lua (introduced in rmarkdown 1.16) are also applied to the output format beamer_presentation now (thanks, @XiangyunHuang, #1815).

  • When customizing formats with the output_format function, pre_knit, opts_hooks, and knit_hooks can now refer to rmarkdown::metadata. Previously, rmarkdown::metadata returned list() in these functions (thanks, @atusy, #1855).

  • rmarkdown::find_external_resources() now discovers external template files. This in turn fixes the rendering issue of html_document with the shiny runtime and intermediate_dir set (thanks, @atusy, @cderv, #1865).

  • Added the number_sections argument to following formats: github_document, ioslides_presentation, md_document, odt_document, powerpoint_presentation, rtf_document, slidy_presentation, word_document. These are powered by a Lua filter and requires Pandoc > 2.0. It will silently have no effect has before with previous pandoc version (thanks @atusy 1893). Pandoc >= 2.10.1 adds --number-sections for docx format, and thus word_document prefers the native feature to the Lua filter (thanks, @jooyoungseo, #1869).

  • For the output format pdf_document, the option fig_crop will not be enabled unless both the programs pdfcrop and ghostscript are found (thanks, @dalupus, yihui/knitr#954).

  • Fixed a bug that a chunk with a class fold-hide hides the rest of the chunks even the output format setting html_document(code_folding = "show") (thanks, @atusy, #1906).

  • Updated documentation for render() to make it clearer how options are set for the output_format parameter (thanks, @jonathan-g, #1907 and rstudio/bookdown#930).

  • Ported some CSS styles (e.g., underlines, small caps, and multi-column layouts) from the latest Pandoc’s HTML template into rmarkdowns HTML templates (thanks, @atusy, #1878, #1908).

rmarkdown 2.3 2020-06-18

  • Addressed an accessibility issue in highlighted code blocks of HTML output for screen reader users: screen readers no longer read out an unnecessary code line id values (thanks, @jooyoungseo and @atusy, #1833).

  • Added file_scope option to output format definition. This enables handling of duplicate numeric footnote identifiers (e.g. across bookdown chapters) via the pandoc --file-scope option (#1837).

  • Added the customizable lang attribute to ioslides_presentation output (thanks, @jooyoungseo, #1841).

  • Added publish_site() function for “one-button” publishing of R Markdown websites.

  • When the df_print option is kable and the output format is not HTML, <div class="kable-table"> is no longer added to the kable() output, because recent versions of Pandoc will convert the div to a LaTeX environment when the output format is LaTeX (thanks, Laurens, https://stackoverflow.com/q/62340425/559676).

  • html_vignette() only warns against differences in the vignette title and the vignette index entry for R >= 3.6.0 (thanks, @krlmlr, #1832).

  • html_document() can apply code_folding on any chunk engines if the foldable class is added to a source code block via the chunk options (class.source or attr.source). You may apply this feature to all the source code blocks, for example, by setting knitr::opts_chunk$set(class.source = "foldable") at the beginning of your document (thanks, @atusy, #1835).

rmarkdown 2.2 2020-05-31

  • Exported the internal function find_pandoc(), and also added two arguments, dir and version, so that users can provide a custom directory under which this function may find Pandoc, as well as an expected version of Pandoc to be found (thanks, @connorp, #1785).

  • pandoc_metadata_arg() is a new Pandoc helper function to generate --metadata argument for Pandoc command line (thanks, @cderv, #1789).

  • The output format html_vignette() now warns against differences in the vignette title specified in the title field in the YAML metadata and the one specified inside \VignetteIndexEntry{}. Normally they are expected to be identical (#1789).

  • Fixed a bug with encoding when rendering html_notebook containing HTML widgets (thanks, @cderv, #1799).

  • TOC title can now be specified for html_document via the top-level option toc-title in the YAML frontmatter (thanks, @atusy, #1771).

  • Floating TOC can now distinguish upper/lower-cases (thanks, @atusy, #1783).

  • When code_folding='show' for the output format html_document, code blocks can be individually hidden initially by specifying the chunk option class.source='fold-hide' (thanks, @atusy, #1798).

  • For LaTeX/PDF output formats pdf_document, beamer_presentation, and context_document, the argument citation_package = 'none' was deprecated, and citation_package = 'default' should be used instead if citations are to be processed by pandoc-citeproc (thanks, @njbart, rstudio/bookdown#754).

  • output_format() can now inherit keep_md and clean_supporting from base_format when NULL is passed to these arguments. Previously, you must explicitly specify keep_md and/or clean_supporting as TRUE or FALSE in output_format() since they could not inherit the corresponding options of base_format. This behavior was not consisent with other arguments of output_format() (thanks, @atusy, #1823).

  • The smart argument of most output formats has been removed, because Pandoc’s smart extension is enabled by default, and setting smart: false for an output format did not really have any effect (which could be considered a bug, but we want to get rid of this option since it existed only for a historical reason for Pandoc 1.x, and Pandoc 2.x has been released for more than two years). If you want to disable the smart extension, you can use the option md_extensions: -smart of the output format (thanks, @atusy, #1774).

  • pdf_document() should not specify the geometry variable when the documentclass variable is passed to Pandoc (thanks, @jpcirrus, #1782).

  • render() now respects the YAML metadata in the R script when rendering the script with Pandoc 2.8 or later (thanks, @nsoranzo #1740, @cderv #1741).

  • For pandoc_convert(), when the argument to = 'pdf', it will be changed to 'latex' internally (thanks, @JohannesFriedrich, #1802).

  • render(run_pandoc = FALSE) no longer cleans up the Markdown file (typically knitted from Rmd) (thanks, @BrianDiggs, #1812).

rmarkdown 2.1 2020-01-20

rmarkdown 2.0 2019-12-12

  • For the output format pdf_document(), we no longer adjust the vertical spacing of the title area. This means there will be a larger spacing above the document title in PDF. If you prefers the old (smaller) spacing, please download https://github.com/rstudio/rmarkdown/blob/f6961af/inst/rmd/latex/compact-title.tex and include it to the preamble via the includes option of pdf_document. However, please note that this means you won’t be able to have multiple authors in the author field of the YAML frontmatter, unless you use a custom LaTeX template. With the default LaTeX template, you will run into the error in #1716. Besides, the compact-title option in YAML is no longer supported.

  • R code in the header-includes field in the YAML frontmatter stopped working in the previous version of rmarkdown. The code should be evaluated before passing to Pandoc (thanks, @mcol #1709, @cderv #1710).

  • The encoding argument is no longer passed to the intermediates_generator of R Markdown output formats. The intermediates_generator function can only accept arguments input_file and intermediates_dir now (see ?rmarkdown::output_format). This is a breaking change to developers. If you are an output format developer, you have to remove the encoding argument in your intermediates_generator if your output format uses this function.

  • The encoding argument is no longer passed to the render element of the site generator (see ?rmarkdown::render_site).

  • The encoding argument has been removed from many of the internal functions in the rmarkdown package. Now all input files are assumed to be encoded in UTF-8. If you see an error message like “Error in FUN(arg = ...): unused argument (arg = ...)”, please file an issue (with a reproducible example) to https://github.com/rstudio/rmarkdown.

  • Added a new output format context_document() to support ConTeXT output (thanks, @RLesur #1725, @jooyoungseo #1713).

  • render_site() can render R scripts in addition to Rmd files if you set autospin: true in _site.yml (thanks, @zeehio, #1564).

  • Added ext argument to md_document(). Its default value is “.md”. This argument is intended to be used together with variant argument (e.g., variant = "context" and ext = ".pdf") (thanks, @atusy, #1715).

  • ioslides_presentation() stylesheet is updated for printing. Browsers are notified that the presentation should preferentially be printed in landscape orientation and without margin (thanks, @RLesur, #1718).

  • Reverted the fix #1703 and applied an alternative fix to #1700, because the original fix brought a new bug #1714 (thanks, @pablobernabeu @cderv @everron @aronatkins).

  • Tabsets don’t work with Pandoc 2.8 (thanks, @mnazarov, #1723).

  • The pdf_document format failed to work if the header-includes field in YAML is an empty list (thanks, @cderv, #1728).

rmarkdown 1.18 2019-11-27

  • For pdf_document(), now we patch Pandoc’s built-in LaTeX template to include the document subtitle (unnecessary with pandoc 2.6 onwards) and reduce the vertical spacing before title using --include-in-header rather than overwriting the built-in template, avoiding compability problems with newer versions of Pandoc (thanks, @adunning, #1563).

  • find_external_resources() works now when multiple files are specified in the includes option of the output format (thanks, @andrie, #1677).

  • find_external_resources() can find external resources specified in the output format’s reference_doc or reference_docx option now (thanks, @jmcphers, #1696).

  • rmarkdown::run(file = NULL, dir = "foo/") failed to run Rmd files under the foo/ directory (thanks, @jenzopr, #1703).

  • Reverted the fix for #1692 since it is no longer necessary (https://github.com/yihui/tinytex/issues/152#issuecomment-552796864).

  • The header-includes field in the YAML metadata will no longer be overwritten by the command-line option --include-in-header (thanks, @crsh @mnazarov, #1359).

  • Removed the xmlns attribute in the <html> tag in the default HTML template (thanks, @grady #1640, @spgarbet #995).

rmarkdown 1.17 2019-11-13

  • html_vignette() passes self_contained argument value to base format (thanks, @cderv, #1668).

  • find_external_resources() works for the html_vignette type again, this fixes rendering vignettes with external resources in pkgdown (regression introduced in rmarkdown 1.16, #1668).

  • render(..., clean = TRUE) may fail to clean the *_files directory when the output format is prettydoc::html_pretty (thanks, @yixuan, #1664).

  • For ioslides_presentation, images with atributes (e.g., ![](sample.png){width=80%}) can be correctly embedded in the self-contained mode now (thanks, @hadley, #1687).

  • Fixed the Pandoc LaTeX templates to avoid the error Filegrffile.sty’ not found`. This is because the LaTeX grffile is no longer available in TeX Live (thanks, @cderv #1691, @smmurphy #1692, @JacobD05 https://github.com/yihui/tinytex/issues/152).

rmarkdown 1.16 2019-10-01

  • The pandoc-citeproc binary can now be found correctly on Windows. This fixes an issue with pandoc_citeproc_convert() (thanks @cderv, #1651).

  • Added self_contained argument to html_vignette to keep intermediate directory if self_contained = FALSE (thanks, @cderv, #1641).

  • It is now possible to add pagebreak in HTML, Word, LaTeX, and ODT documents using the \newpage or \pagebreak command in an Rmd file. This is possible thanks to the Pandoc’s pagebreak Lua filter. See vignette("lua-filters", package = "rmarkdown") (thanks, @cderv, #1626).

  • The Pandoc extension ascii_identifiers is no longer enabled by default. If you still need it, you may use the argument md_extensions = "+ascii_identifiers" in the output format function. However, please note that this will trigger an error in a future version of Pandoc.

  • Output formats can be configured by arbitrary YAML files, which used to be restricted to _output.yml or _output.yaml. They can be specified via the output_yaml argument of render() or the output_yaml top-level parameter of YAML front matter, and the first existing one will be used. If output_yaml is specified both for render() and YAML front matter, then render() has the priority. If none are found, then _output.yml or _output.yaml will be used if they exist (thanks, @atusy, #1634).

  • Added a Pandoc Lua filter to convert fenced Divs to LaTeX environments when the output format is latex or beamer. Basically a fenced Div ::: {.NAME data-latex="[OPTIONS]"} is converted to \begin{NAME}[OPTIONS] \end{NAME} in LaTeX. The attribute data-latex must be provided, even if it is an empty string (meaning that the LaTeX environment does not have any optional arguments). For example, ::: {.verbatim data-latex=""} generates a verbatim environment, and ::: {.minipage data-latex="{.5\textwidth}"} generates \begin{minipage}{.5\textwidth}. This Lua filter was originally written by @RLesur at https://github.com/yihui/bookdown-crc/issues/1. It will allow users to create custom blocks that work for both HTML and LaTeX output (e.g., info boxes or warning boxes).

  • Added keep_html argument to github_document so to save a preview HTML file in a working directory (thanks, @atusy, #1650).

rmarkdown 1.15 2019-08-21

  • Exclude README.R?md from files processed by render_site(),

  • html_document with code_folding: hide supports showing individual source code chunks if they are assigned the fold-show class via the chunk option class.source="fold-show" (thanks, @atusy, #1602).

  • The extra_dependencies argument only works with template: default in pdf_document. Now it works with any Pandoc LaTeX templates as long as the template uses the header-includes variable.

rmarkdown 1.14 2019-07-12

  • Fixed a regression in ioslides_presentation that background colors via the data-background attribute on slides stopped working (thanks, @ShKlinkenberg, #1265).

  • Fixed the bug #1577 introduced in rmarkdown v1.12: tabsets, floating TOC, and code folding in the html_document format no longer work with the shiny runtime (thanks, @RLesur for the fix #1587, and @fawda123 @ColinChisholm @JasonAizkalns for the bug report).

  • Added the keep_md argument to pdf_document() to keep the intermediate .md output file (thanks, @broomej, #1001).

  • For render(), if the input filename contains special characters such as spaces or question marks (as defined in rmarkdown:::.shell_chars_regex), the file will be temporarily renamed with the special characters replaced by - (dash) instead of _ (underscore, as in previous versions of rmarkdown). This change will affect users who render such files with caching (cache will be invalidated and regenerated). The change is due to the fact that - is generally a safer character than _, especially for LaTeX output (#1396).

  • Added a pkgdown site for the rmarkdown package: https://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/docs/ (thanks, @apreshill, #1574).

  • Fixed the bug #1593: in HTML documents, when a MathJax URL is used with a custom template, the source code of the MathJax library is included in the document. This bug was first declared in bookdown (thanks, @topepo for the bug report rstudio/bookdown#683, and @RLesur for the fix #1594).

rmarkdown 1.13 2019-05-22

  • For pdf_document(), do not override margins to 1 inch when a custom document class or geometry settings are specified in the YAML front matter (thanks, @adunning, #1550)

  • The default value of the encoding argument in all functions in this package (such as render() and render_site()) has been changed from getOption("encoding") to UTF-8. We have been hoping to support UTF-8 only in rmarkdown, knitr, and other related packages in the future. For more info, you may read https://yihui.org/en/2018/11/biggest-regret-knitr/.

  • The option toc_float: true for html_document now preserves the text formatting (thanks, @codetrainee, #1548).

  • For the output_file argument of render(), a file extension will be automatically added if the filename does not contain an extension (e.g., render('foo.Rmd', 'html_document', output_file = 'bar') will generate bar.html); see the help page ?rmarkdown::render for details (thanks, @apreshill, #1551).

  • TOC items are not correctly indented when toc_float is enabled for the html_document format (thanks, @carolynwclayton #1235 and @RLesur #1243).

  • Fixed rstudio/shiny#2307 where the second execution of a shiny_prerendred document with href dependencies would cause a prerender check error (thanks, @schloerke, #1562).

  • The *_files directory is not properly cleared due to the inappropriate fix for #1503 and #1472 in the last version (thanks, @wxli0 #1553, @cderv #1566).

  • Added an output_extensions argument to pdf_document() to make it possible to enable/disable Pandoc extensions for the LaTeX output format (thanks, @hongyuanjia, rstudio/bookdown#687).

rmarkdown 1.12 2019-03-14

  • Fixed file extensions of output files when using non-markdown Pandoc extensions such as docx+styles (#1494, @noamross).

  • Added a new argument extra_lines to latex_dependency() to allow users to add extra lines of LaTeX code after \usepackage{}. Also added a helper function latex_dependency_tikz() based on latex_dependency() (#1502, @malcolmbarrett).

  • Fixed #1529: when the path of an Rmd file contains Unicode characters that cannot be represented in the system native encoding (especially on Windows), rmarkdown::render() may fail.

  • Applied a correct fix to an old plotly issue ropensci/plotly#463.

  • HTML widgets used to be hidden when printing ioslides to PDF in Chrome. Now they will be printed correctly.

  • render(output_format = 'all') may delete the figure directories that are still needed by certain output formats when one output format doesn’t need its figure directory (thanks, @rmcd1024 #1472, @cderv #1503).

  • The <em> tags in the subtitle, date, and author are removed from the default HTML template (thanks, @royfrancis, #1544).

rmarkdown 1.11 2018-12-08

  • Fixed #1483, which prevented the triangle to be displayed in Firefox when <details><summary>...</summary></details> was used (#1485, @bisaloo)

  • Provided rmarkdown.pandoc.args as a knitr package option in knitr::opts_knit (#1468, @noamross).

  • Added the exported function pandoc_exec(), which returns the path of the pandoc binary used by the package (#1465, #1466 @noamross).

  • new_session: true in _site.yml causes render_site() to render each file in a new R session, eliminating some cross-file difficulties, such as function masking (#1326, #1443 @jennybc).

  • Added the LaTeX command \passthrough in the default LaTeX template for the --listings flag of Pandoc (rstudio/bookdown#591).

  • The icons in flexdashboard::valueBox() are not of the full sizes due to the upgrade of FontAwesome in #1340 in the previous version (#1388, rstudio/flexdashboard#189).

  • Added the ability to generate tabset dropdowns, usable by adding the .tabset-dropdown class to a header (e.g., # Heading {.tabset .tabset-dropdown}) (#1405). Thanks @stefanfritsch for contributing the necessary code for this (#1116).

  • The darkly theme (a darker variant of the Bootswatch flatly theme) has been added to html_document and html_notebook (#1409, #889).

  • Fixed a regression that caused scrollbars on code blocks when the syntax highlighting theme is not the default (#654, #1399).

  • Fixed #1407: reactive expressions can break the section headers of Shiny R Markdown documents.

  • Fixed #1431: render() with the intermediates_dir argument when the output format is powerpoint_presentation with a custom reference_doc fails to find the reference document.

  • Fixed the website navbar not being able to display submenus properly (#721, #1426).

  • Added checks for shiny-prerendered documents to find all html dependencies, match all execution packages, and match the major R version (#1420).

  • Added an argument cache = TRUE to the internal function rmarkdown:::find_pandoc(), so that users can invalidate the cached path of Pandoc via rmarkdown:::find_pandoc(cache = FALSE) (thanks, @hammer, #1482).

  • Added an RStudio project template for simple R Markdown websites, so that users can create such websites from RStudio: New Project -> New Directory -> Simple R Markdown Website (thanks, @kevinushey, #1470).

  • Fixed #1471: Pandoc’s (version 2.x) syntax highlighting themes don’t work well with the Bootstrap style (thanks, @gponce-ars #1471, @cderv #1489).

  • Fixed the warnings in #1224 and #1288 when calling render() with an absolute output_dir or intermediates_dir.

  • Fixed #1300: calling render() with intermediates_dir may fail when the intermediate dir is on a difference device or filesystem.

  • Fixed #1358: calling render() with intermediates_dir will fail if the Rmd document contains bibliography files that are dynamically generated.

rmarkdown 1.10 2018-06-11

  • Added a new argument slide_level to powerpoint_presentation() (#1270).

  • Update to Font Awesome version 5.0.13 (#1340).

  • Add site_resources() function for computing resource files required for a website.

  • Export default_site_generator() function.

  • The latex_document() format should not clean up the figure directory (thanks, @emiltb, rstudio/bookdown#582).

  • Enable post processors that change the output file to specify that the base post processor should still be applied to the original output file.

rmarkdown 1.9 2018-03-01


  • Added a new (experimental) output format powerpoint_presentation. If you want to test it, you will need Pandoc >= 2.1 (#1231).


  • If the tinytex package is installed, PDF output is built through tinytex::latexmk(), otherwise it is generated by rmarkdown:::latexmk(), which has been factored out and improved in the tinytex package, so it is recommended that you install the tinytex package (#1222).


rmarkdown 1.8 2017-11-17


  • render_site() does not work with _site.yml that does not have the output setting (#1189).

  • The variables input and output do not work in Shiny R Markdown documents (#1193).

  • ioslides_presentation fails to embed images (#1197).

  • With Pandoc 2.x, github_document() generates the wrong filename extension .gfm-ascii_identifiers instead of .md, and line height of code blocks in the HTML preview is too big (#1200).

  • HTML widgets in an Rmd document cannot be rendered if another Rmd document is rendered via rmarkdown::render() in this document (#993).

  • Try harder to clean up temporary files created during render() (#820).

  • Wrong environment for evaluating R code chunks in Shiny R Markdown docs (#1162, #1124).

  • Do not call bibtex to create the bibliography when there are no citations in the document and the output format is pdf_document() with citation_package = 'natbib' (#1113).

  • Unicode characters may be scrambled when downloading the Rmd source file using the download button generated by html_document(code_download = TRUE) (#722).

  • Upgraded highlight.js from v1.1 to v9.12.0 (#988, #907).

  • The argument keep_md = TRUE actually preserves the Markdown output file from knitr::knit() now (as documented). Previously, it generates a new Markdown file by concatenating the YAML metadata (title, author, date) with the body of the original Markdown output file (#450).

  • For md_document(), when variant == 'markdown' and perserve_yaml = TRUE, the Pandoc argument --standalone should not be used (#656).

rmarkdown 1.6 2017-06-15

  • Use RStudio redirection URL to replace deprecated MathJax CDN

rmarkdown 1.4 2017-03-24

  • data.table expressions involving := are no longer automatically printed within R Markdown documents. (#829)

  • Fix #910: the extra_dependencies argument of pdf_document() does not work when no code chunks contain LaTeX dependencies.

  • The extra_dependencies of pdf_document() can also take a character vector of LaTeX package names, or a named list of LaTeX package options (with names being package names), which makes it much easier to express LaTeX dependencies via YAML.

  • Automatically ignore packrat directory for render_site

  • Fix #943: escape end tags in shiny_prerendered code contexts

  • Add support for sticky tabs in html_document via tabset-sticky class

  • Serialize runtime: shiny[_prerendered] dependencies to JSON rather than .rds

  • ioslides: check for null before concatenating attr[“class”] (#836)

  • Add rmarkdown.onKnit/onKnitCompleted package hooks

  • Parameter editing: fix incorrect name for parameters with expressions

  • Parameter editing: allow multiple values when the parameter is configured to use a “multiple” selector

  • Switched the order in which format dependencies are added for html_document so that extra_dependencies are added at the end, after bootstrap, etc. (#737)

  • pdf_document(keep_tex = TRUE) will generate the .tex document even if PDF conversion fails (#779).

  • Move latex header includes to just before \begin{document}

  • Special ‘global’ chunk label for runtime: shiny which designates a chunk to be run once and only once in the global environment (startup performance improvement for multi-user shiny documents)

  • Ensure supporting files are writeable (#800)

  • Make the “show code” buttons more CSS-friendly (#795)

  • Exclude output_dir from site files (#803)

  • Export navbar_html and yaml_front_matter functions

  • Support url references in CSS files for runtime: shiny

  • Change name of common options file to _output.yml

  • Tweak pandoc conversion used in pandoc_self_contained_html to prevent hanging with large script elements (use “markdown” rather than “markdown-strict” as input format)

  • The filename extension .bib will be removed before bibliography files are passed to Pandoc when the output is LaTeX/PDF and the citation package natbib or biblatex is used on Windows. This is because bibtex in MikTeX will always add the extension .bib to bibliography files, e.g. it treats foo.bib as foo.bib.bib. (#623)

  • Render Shiny documents in a clean environment; fixes issue in which code in Shiny documents could access internal R Markdown state

rmarkdown 0.9.2 2016-01-01

  • Added a fix to #580 for Windows users.

rmarkdown 0.9.1 2015-12-31

  • Fix for a bug causing certain files to be deleted as intermediate files. (#580)

  • Fix for JS exception in slidy_presentation when served from the filesystem (don’t call pushState for file:// urls)

  • Escape single quotes in file paths

  • Fix for missing resources when rendering a filename with shell characters

  • For PDF/LaTeX output, citations are processed via natbib or biblatex instead of pandoc-citeproc. The ciation package natbib or biblatex can be chosen using the argument citation_package in pdf_document(), beamer_presentation(), and tufte_handout(). LaTeX is compiled to PDF via latexmk (https://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexmk/); if it is not installed, a simple emulation will be used (run pdflatex/xelatex/lualatex, bibtex, and makeindex a few times). You are recommended to install latexmk, and please note latexmk requires a Perl installation (this is important especially for Windows users).

  • Always use the graphics package for PDF output

  • Fix for the error “cannot change value of locked binding for ‘metadata’” when one call of rmarkdown::render() is nested in another one (#248)

  • Fix for an issue causing image paths to be rendered incorrectly in Windows when rendering an html_document with self_contained: false and a path is passed in argument output_dir. (#551)

  • Add always_allow_html option for preventing errors when html_dependencies are rendered in non-HTML formats (e.g. pdf_document or word_document).

  • Fix for an issue causing resources not to be discovered in some documents containing an empty quoted string ("") in an R chunk.

  • Automatically discover and include dependent resources (e.g. images, css, etc.) for interactive documents.

  • Added pandoc_version function.

  • Use VignetteEncoding directive in html_vignette format

  • Fix issues related to use of non-ASCII characters in ioslides_presentation

  • Non-ASCII characters in the YAML data are not marked with the UTF-8 encoding when they are read into R, so character strings in rmarkdown::metadata may be displayed incorrectly (#420)
