SciViews GUI API - Sweave functions

Supporting functions for the GUI API (Sweave functions)


= svSweave News

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-8

  • weaveLyxRnw(), knitLyxRnw(), tangleLyxRnw() and purlLyxRnw() now have a new argument logFile, indicating which log file to use.

  • cleanLyxRnw() now detects if the SciViews Knitr LyX module is used, and it automatically switches to knitr to knit or purl the document in weaveLyxRnw() and tangleLyxRnw().

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-7

  • All Asciidoc-related items are now moved to svDoc package.

  • Weaving and tangling are now done with options(warn = 1) for immediate issue of warnings.

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-6

  • Slight reworking of the Asciidoc-related function RdocXXX(). svBuild() is renamed makeRdoc() to be more explicit.

  • Addition of header() function that creates an Asciidoc header.

  • Addition of dynamic R document features, using a customized shiny engine.

  • Ten examples of dynamic documents added. They are adapted from shiny examples.examples

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-5

  • Now knitr can also be used to weave your documents (knitLyxRnw/purlLyxRnw).

  • Asciidoc updated to version 8.6-8.

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-4

  • Added a dependence to the ascii package to support Asciidoc Sweave documents.

  • Asciidoc 8.6-7 is installed with the package but it will only work if Python >= 2.4 is installed. Asciidoc is distributed under a GPL-2 license, like the package.

  • RasciidocToRnw() and RasciidocConvert() added to convert SciViews R scripts embedding Sweave data into Asciidoc .Rnw files and to Html, respectively. RasciidocThemes() lists available HTML themes provided with this package.

  • svBuild() is a convenient function to automatically compile any SciViews-R script into the final document.

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-3

  • Added functions tangleLyxRnw() and weaveLyxRnw() to be called directly from LyX using R -e svSweave::weaveLyxRnw("$$i")

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-2

  • Added a svSweave-package help page.

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-1

  • The LaTeX command for our chunks is renamed from \Rchunk{} to \rchunk{}.

== Changes in svSweave 0.9-0

This is the first version distributed on R-forge and CRAN.
