Code snippet to create download link for markdown report?

rmarkdown
shiny

#1

Hi,

Does any one have a code snippet of how to create a download link for a file that I create using markdown in my shiny app?

Currently I am creating html report and rendering it in my shiny app using renderUI like so

    rmarkdown::render("report.Rmd", output_file = "test.html",
                      params = my_params,
                     envir = new.env(parent = globalenv())
)

     box(
  includeHTML("test.html")
)

Now, I would like to give an option to download the same report as a word document but am having a block on how best to accomplish it.

Any pointers would be much appreciated,

Thanks

Iain
