DT::datatable option compact not compact in flexdashboard


I attempted to set the option compact in the DT::datatable that is rendered in a flexdashboard. It does not result in a compact layout like the example in the documentation. I have a github repo with instructions to quickly recreate it using included scripts. You can see the dashboard here.

documentation example of a compact datatable here


#dm_table <- datatable(dm_2013_df)
dm_table <- datatable(dm_2013_df, options = list(hover=TRUE, compact=TRUE))


These are CSS classes that you apply to the table. DT has a class argument for this -

DT::datatable(mtcars, class = "compact")
