tabular and flextable
tables::tabular() is the closest thing to the

flextable 0.4.0 is out
The package flextable is existing since mid 2016 and I did not made any communication about it; obviously if I wrote it, I’d like it to be used by R users! That post is an attempt to fix that.

It’s better, faster and does only rely on R.2 Example Let’s have a demo.
ggiraph 0.3.3 is out
I am excited to announce the release of ggiraph version 0.3.3. The package did not evolved that much within the last months as I was busy on other projects. I finally found time last week to work on it. The new version fixes an issue with pan effect (that was not adjusted to the zoom level). ggiraph() has a new agument ggobj to avoid call to print in the code argument.
This is my first post. As I am writing packages for R, I should communicate on my work. Until now, I didn’t have correct tool to do it without spending days on it. Thanks to blogdown package from Yihui Xie, I don’t have an excuse anymore…
