I'm pleased to announce that package 'tablesgg' is now available:

CRAN: https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=tablesgg
GitHub:  https://github.com/rrprf/tablesgg

The package displays presentation-quality tables as plots on an R 
graphics device.  It is unique in combining two features:

* It is aware of the logical structure of the table being presented, and 
makes use of that for automatic layout and styling of the table.  This 
avoids the need for most manual adjustments to achieve an attractive 

* It displays tables using `ggplot2` graphics.  External software such 
as LaTeX or HTML or their viewers is not required.

A full set of tools is provided to control table appearance, including 
titles, footnotes and reference marks, horizontal and vertical rules, 
and spacing or grouping of rows and columns.  Many properties can be set 
automatically by specifying _styles_.  Default styles are included, and 
the user can define custom styles.  There are also tools for low-level 
manipulation of the appearance of individual table elements if desired.

Methods are included to display data frames; tables created by R's 
ftable(), table(), and xtabs() functions; and tables created by the 
`tables` and `xtable` packages.  Methods can be added to display other 
table-like objects.

A vignette is included that illustrates usage and options available in 
the package.
