tint 0.0.4: Small enhancements

A maintenance release of the tint package arrived on CRAN earlier today. Its name expands from tint is not tufte as the package offers a fresher take on the Tufte-style for html and pdf presentations.

A screenshot of the pdf variant is below.

This release brings some minor enhancements and polish, mostly learned from having done the related pinp (two-column vignette in the PNAS style) and linl (LaTeX letter) RMarkdown-wrapper packages; see below for details from the NEWS.Rd file.

Changes in tint version 0.0.4 (2017-11-02)

  • Skeleton files are also installed as vignettes (#20).

  • A reference to the Tufte source file now points to tint (Ben Marwick in #19, later extended to other Rmd files).

  • Several spelling and grammar errors were corrected too (#13 and #16 by R. Mark Sharp and Matthew Henderson)

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release. More information is on the tint page.

It marks a milestone for me: I finally have a repository with more "stars" than commits. Gotta keep an eye on the big prize...

Kidding aside, and as a little teaser, here is what the pdf variant looks like:
