[R: New Features on mindr] v.1.2.0 released: universal function and directory tree

Brief Intro and curriculum

'mindr' is an R package that can convert files between (R)markdown, R scripts, and mind maps. A brief introduction can be found in one of my previous posts:

New Features

Commit: v.1.2.0 'mm()', 'tree()', 'pandoc'.

The new version 1.2.0 mainly brings four exciting features.

  1. Suggested by @yihui, an argument of 'method' was added to each main functions. Users can choose the method of regular expression or pandoc to pick out the outline of a markdown file.
  2. Suggested by the issue from the users, now mindr can save the mind map as an HTML widget file and share the mind map on web.
  3. A new function tree() can create a mind map from a directory on your computer. See the following image as a demo.
  4. A universal function mm() can convert the file formats automatically according to the suffix of the input file. This is a big step of mindr, because mm() wraps (almost) all the previous features into one function. Users do not have to memorize other functions.

Thank you for the helpful comments! NULLLL is deliberately misspelt for tracing (see the function count_space(). Although I agree that dir2 and dir4 could be better named, such names are quite popular in R community. For examples, read.csv2()is a built-in function.

Many thanks!

Thank you for your review, @justyy! Keep up the good work!
