Documentation

Motivations

ReporteRs became hard to maintain; partly because of java dependancy, partly because it was a piece of code started when we had less expeRience.

It became easier to rewrite the whole package (officer) than to maintain ReporteRs.

What we plan

Position

The package is an R alternative to SAS ODS. It’s very efficient for production of corporate reporting.

Users are often from life science, clinical industry, marketing and finance.

The package is not to be compared with R Markdown which is dedicated to literate programming.


More to come soon.
