Great Looking Tables: gt (v0.2)

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

We are extremely excited to have our first release of the gt package available in CRAN! The name gt is short for “grammar of tables” and the goal of gt is similar to that of ggplot2, serving to not just to make it easy to make specific tables, but to describe a set of underlying components that can be recombined in different ways to solve different problems.
If you ever need to make beautiful customized display tables, I think you’ll find gt is up to the task.
