Instead of standard R output, knitr and RMarkdown documents will have formatted knitr::kable() output on return. You can disable this by setting the chunk option render = normal_print.

# S3 method for skim_df
knit_print(x, options = NULL, ...)

# S3 method for skim_list
knit_print(x, options = NULL, ...)

# S3 method for one_skim_df
knit_print(x, options = NULL, ...)

# S3 method for summary_skim_df
knit_print(x, options = NULL, ...)



An R object to be printed


Options passed into the print function.


Additional arguments passed to the S3 method. Currently ignored, except two optional arguments options and inline; see the references below.


A knit_asis object. Which is used by knitr when rendered.


The summary statistics for the original data frame can be disabled by setting the knitr chunk option skimr_include_summary = FALSE. See knitr::opts_chunk for more information. You can change the number of digits shown in the printed table with the skimr_digits chunk option.

Alternatively, you can call collapse() or yank() to get the particular skim_df objects and format them however you like. One warning though. Because histograms contain unicode characters, they can have unexpected print results, as R as varying levels of unicode support. This affects Windows users most commonly. Call vignette("Using_fonts") for more details.

Methods (by class)

  • skim_df: Default knitr print for skim_df objects.

  • skim_list: Default knitr print for a skim_list.

  • one_skim_df: Default knitr print within a partitioned skim_df.

  • summary_skim_df: Default knitr print for skim_df summaries.
