Our linl package for writing LaTeX letter with (R)markdown had a fairly minor release today, following up on the previous release well over a year ago. This version just contains one change which Mark van der Loo provided a few months ago with a clean PR. As another user was just bitten the same issue when using an included letterhead – which was fixed but unreleased – we decided it was time for a release. So there it is.
Here is screenshot of the vignette showing the simple input for some moderately fancy output:
The NEWS entry follows:
Changes in linl version 0.0.3 (2018-12-15)
Following up on the initial 0.0.1 release of linl, Aaron and I are happy to announce release 0.0.2 which reached the CRAN network on Sunday in a smooth 'CRAN-pretest-publish' auto-admittance. linl provides a simple-yet-powerful Markdown---and RMarkdown---wrapper around the venerable LaTeX letter class; see below for an expanded example also included as the package vignette.
This versions sets a few sensible default values for font, font size, margins, signature (non-)indentation and more; it also expands the documentation.
The NEWS entry follows:
Changes in tint version 0.0.2 (2017-10-29)
Set a few defaults for a decent-looking skeleton and template: font, fontsize, margins, left-justify closing (#3)
Blockquote display is now a default as well (#4).
skeleton.Rmdand vignette source accordingly
Links are now by default printed as footnotes (#9).
Aaron Wolen and I are pleased to announce the availability of the initial 0.0.1 release of our new linl package on the CRAN network. It provides a simple-yet-powerful Markdown---and RMarkdown---wrapper the venerable LaTeX letter class. Aaron had done the legwork in the underlying pandoc-letter repository upon which we build via proper rmarkdown integration.
The package also includes a LaTeX trick or two: optional header and signature files, nicer font, better size, saner default geometry and more. See the following screenshot which shows the package vignette---itself a simple letter---along with (most of) its source:
The initial (short) NEWS entry follows:
Changes in tint version 0.0.1 (2017-10-17)
- Initial CRAN release
The date is a little off; it took a little longer than usual for the good folks at CRAN to process the initial submission. We expect future releases to be more timely.
