A new RStudio addin to facilitate inserting tables in rmarkdown documents

In the last months, I started increasingly using Rmd documents for preparing scientific reports, blog posts, etcetera. While I really like the flexibility offered by the system, one thing that I thought could be improved is the support for easily inserting tables. So, “inspired” also by the recent addition of the excellent insert image addin in blogdown, I decided to give it a go and try to implement some kind of addin to facilitate table insertion in Rmd documents.
After struggling a bit due to my rather nonexistent shiny skills, in the end I managed to obtain a “basic but useful” (IMO) addin.
