Get a named vector of available R Markdown templates for new posts.

available_templates()

Details

By default available_templates() looks for R Markdown post templates in ./templates. The template file name will be used to name the template. For example, ./templates/my_template.Rmd will be named "my_template". This name can be used to access the path for "my_template" (see examples), and will also be displayed in the list of available templates in the Create post (from template) RStudio addin.

The default directory available_templates() looks for R Markdown post templates in can be changed with options("distilltools.templates.path" = "custom/templates/path/"). For the change to persist between R sessions this code should be placed in a project local .Rprofile. Use usethis::edit_r_profile("project") to create or edit this file.

In addition to local templates, available_templates() will always make available a default template named "Default" that matches the one from distill::create_post(). This template can be selected in the Create post (from template) RStudio addin as well.
