These buttons will change according to the theme you set for your HTML output, but you can also further modify them with the power of css.

You can simply pass a class to download_this() and define this class in css.

Changing size

.button_large {
  font-size: 24px;
}
library(downloadthis)

mtcars %>%
  download_this(
    output_name = "mtcars dataset",
    output_extension = ".csv",
    button_label = "Download data as csv",
    button_type = "default",
    has_icon = TRUE,
    icon = "fa fa-save",
    class = "button_large"
  )

Changing font-family

.button_times_new_roman {
  font-family: "Times New Roman";
  font-size: 14px;

    output_extension = ".csv",
