Xaringan Infinite Moon Reader Addin


#1

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).
