When working with Rnw (Sweave) files or otherwise writing LaTeX code, including a gt table can be problematic if we don't have knowledge of the LaTeX dependencies. For the most part, these dependencies are the LaTeX packages that are required for rendering a gt table. The gt_latex_dependencies() function provides an object that can be used to provide the LaTeX in an Rnw file, allowing gt tables to work and not yield errors due to missing packages.

gt_latex_dependencies()

Details

Here is an example Rnw document that shows how the gt_latex_dependencies() can be used in conjunction with a gt table:

%!sweave=knitr

\documentclass{article}

<<echo=FALSE>>=
library(gt)
 @

<<results='asis', echo=FALSE>>=
gt_latex_dependencies()
 @

\begin{document}

<<results='asis', echo=FALSE>>=
exibble 
 @

\end{document}
