{blogsnip} is a package of RStudio addins for inserting code snippets.

The addins make it easier for me to write {blogdown} posts for rostrum.blog. You may or may not find them useful.

You can read about each function in the vignette, on the ‘references’ page of the {blogsnip} website or browse the source.

The blogsnip RStudio addin is demonstrated by selecting 'insert details block' from the addins menu, which creates an expandable details section when rendered from R Markdown to HTML.

The function bs_details_expand() via an RStudio addin


Install from GitHub with:


Restart RStudio and the addins will then be available from the ‘Addins’ menu in RStudio, listed under ‘BLOGSNIP’.
