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}
