Xaringan Infinite Moon Reader Addin


I’m attempting to use the really cool xaringan package for creating presentations but the Infinite Moon Reader Addin is not rendering the output correctly.

Here is a screenshot of what I see when I hit the Knit to moon_reader button (I’m Knitting the default Ninja Presentation template):

Expanding the window will reveal the plain text of the RMarkdown document. The Open in Browser option displays the output just fine. I have not been able to diagnose what is going wrong and haven’t located anyone documenting the same issue. Suggestions would be much appreciated.

I am using RStudio Version 1.1.345 and Version 0.4 of xaringan. My laptop was recently upgraded, to Windows 10. The Infinite Moon Reader Addin worked on my Windows 7 machine.


I have heard a few Windows users report the same problem. I guess you have to open the presentation in an external browser if you use Windows (there seems to be some https issues with the Windows version of the RStudio IDE).
