r2symbols version 1.1, Simplify the inclusion of Symbols in your Rmarkdown or Quarto documents or Shiny applications

Summary

The new version of the r2symbols package simplifies the way to transform text into symbols within your documents. Simply include the library call and the function calls above, and the r2symbol takes care of transforming text throughout your document to appropriate symbols as shown below

library(r2symbols)
trans.r2symbols(font.color="green", font.weight = "bold",font.size = 30)

With the r2symbols package, the idea is very simple. There are already a lot of HTML codes available for many of these symbols, so this package simply incorporates the appropriate symbol into the document and in the final ouput, mathjax script is not needed for it to show up properly. Additionally, the code you will be writing is all R code and no LaTex is needed.

New Features in v1.1

How to use in Rmarkdown and Quarto documents

1. Include library

library(r2symbols)

2. Add function call

trans.r2symbols(font.color="gray", font.weight = "light",font.size = 12)

3. Begin writing your documents

To use, wrap the symbol code or alias (found at r2symbols.obi.obianom.com) in ‘((’ or ‘`’ like

((SYMBOL NAME OR ID))

or

'SYMBOL NAME OR ID'

within the text in the document and watch r2symbols do the magic!

Examples: some sample outputs and codes
