Let’s create a data dictionary for avalanche and add the results to a vignette. First, run use_data_raw(). Call the data “data_dictionary.” In the data processing file, put this code before the use_data() line. Then, source the script. This will run use_data() for you.
Open R/tables.R. Add a function called gt_data_dictionary() that wraps data_dictionary in gt::gt(). You can use gt_donations() as a starting point for the new function.
Re-document and re-build the package.
Open vignettes/data-dictionary.Rmd. On line 24, run gt_data_dictionary() and knit the vignette.
