Get the HTML content from a gt_tbl object as a single-element character vector. By default, the generated HTML will have inlined styles, where CSS styles (that were previously contained in CSS rule sets external to the <table> element) are included as style attributes in the HTML table's tags. This option is preferable when using the output HTML table in an emailing context.


as_raw_html(data, inline_css = TRUE)



The gt table data object

obj:<gt_tbl> // required

This is the gt table object that is commonly created through use of the gt() function.


Use inline CSS

scalar<logical> // default: TRUE

An option to supply styles to table elements as inlined CSS styles. This is useful when including the table HTML as part of an HTML email message body, since inlined styles are largely supported in email clients over using CSS in a <style> block.


Use a subset of the gtcars dataset to create a gt table. Add a header with tab_header() and then export the table as HTML code with inlined CSS styles using as_raw_html().

tab_html <-
  gtcars |>
  dplyr::select(mfr, model, msrp) |>
  dplyr::slice_head(n = 5) |>
  gt() |>
    title = md("Data listing from **gtcars**"),
    subtitle = md("`gtcars` is an R dataset")
  ) |>

What's returned is a single-element vector containing the HTML for the table. It has only the <table>...</table> part so it's not a complete HTML document but rather an HTML fragment.
