I would quite like to do something like the following in an RMarkdown YAML header:
--- params: weightings: a: 11 b: 12 ... ---
so that I could then do this in the body of the document:
weightings <- unlist(params$weightings)
weightings <- c(params$weightings$a, params$weightings$b, ...)
Of course that YAML approach above doesn't work for
params, because when you indent under params you are expected to be providing labels and values for the Shiny parameters interface.
Does anyone else think that such a nesting feature for
params would be useful? Or is there a way to do this currently, that I haven't thought of?
My best approach currently would be something like:
--- params: weighting_a: 11 weighting_b: 12 ... --- weightings <- unlist(subset(params, grepl("^weighting", names(params))))
