Using highlighter

We can use the highglighter function in order to render and highlight code. By default the function will highlight the syntax of R code.

highlighter("some_variable <- 3")

If we want we can specify the language using the language parameter.

highlighter("const someVariable = 3;", language = "js")

Using highlight_file

We can pass the path to a local file using the highlight_file function

highlight_file("<path_to_your_file>", language = "r")
