R: Reporting using R Markdown

R Markdown is a powerful R package for static and dynamic reports, publications and dashboards that can be created fully reproducible using a highly intuitive notebook interface. Furthermore, R Markdown documents can be quickly converted into other document types like HTML web pages, PDF files or Word documents. It is widely used for documenting R projects, seminar papers and publications.
