huxtable, or hux, creates a huxtable object.

huxtable(
  ...,
  add_colnames = getOption("huxtable.add_colnames", TRUE),
  add_rownames = FALSE,
  autoformat = getOption("huxtable.autoformat", TRUE)
)

hux(
  ...,
  add_colnames = getOption("huxtable.add_colnames", TRUE),
  add_rownames = FALSE,
  autoformat = getOption("huxtable.autoformat", TRUE)
)

tribble_hux(
  ...,
  add_colnames = getOption("huxtable.add_colnames", TRUE),
  autoformat = getOption("huxtable.autoformat", TRUE)
)

Arguments

...

For huxtable, named list of values as in data.frame(). For tribble_hux, data values as in tibble::tribble().

add_colnames

If TRUE, add a first row of column names to the huxtable.

add_rownames

If TRUE or a character string, add a first column of row names to the huxtable. The string gives the name for the new column (or "rownames" for TRUE).

autoformat

If TRUE, automatically format columns by type. See below.

Value

An object of class huxtable.

Details

If you use add_colnames or add_rownames, be aware that these will shift your rows and columns along by one: your old row/column 1 will now be row/column 2, etc.

add_colnames defaults to TRUE. You can set the default globally by setting options("huxtable.add_colnames") to TRUE or FALSE.

tribble_hux is a simple wrapper around tibble::tribble() which lets you create data in a readable format. It requires the "tibble" package to be installed.

Automatic formatting

If autoformat is TRUE, then columns will have number_format() and align() properties set automatically, as follows:

  • Integer columns will have number_format set to 0.

  • Other numeric columns will have number_format set to "%.3g".

  • All other columns will have number_format set to NA (no formatting).

  • Integer, Date and date-time (i.e. POSIXct and POSIXlt) columns will be right-aligned.

  • Other numeric columns will be aligned on options("OutDec"), usually ".".

  • Other columns will be left aligned.

You can change these defaults by editing options("huxtable.autoformat_number_format") and options("huxtable.autoformat_align"). See huxtable-package for more details.

Automatic alignment also applies to column headers if add_colnames is TRUE; headers of columns aligned on a decimal point will be right-aligned. Automatic number formatting does not apply to column headers.
