Amber Thomas (@ProQuesAsker; 858): About 6 months ago, I wanted to change the color scheme of my personal site…and ended up re-designing the whole thing. It’s still powered by #rstats (@xieyihui’s blogdown pkg) but with @parkerwyoung’s design help, it’s much more me 🌸😊💗 Check it out 👉

Martin Monkman (@monkmanmh; 60): @kierisi @EngelhardtCR @jacquietran @Dorris_Scott You are all too kind. And the really hard work is done by all the people whose work I’ve found. All I did was turn my “this is good…I’m going to save this for the future” notes into a web resource, which was easy using #bookdown…so thanks to @xieyihui!

Matt Crump (@MattCrump_; 54): Anyone know of an R package like #pkgdown or #bookdown, but for data (e.g. make a website to share data with documentation etc.)…tweeting while walking to work here, so found this …haven’t tried it yet, wondering if there are others #Rstats

Paul Smaldino (@psmaldino; 30): @wgervais What a lack of imagination. Obviously you should write the book using Bookdown, include a chapter modeling the evolution of religious beliefs (hosting any code on github), and throw a celebratory rock in the ocean each time you finish a chapter.

Sharon Machlis (@sharon000; 279): Lots of knitr #rstats code examples by @xieyihui here:

Rhian Davies (@trianglegirl; 132): I was today years old when I realised that the #RMarkdown chunk option results = "asis" stands for “as is”. I’ve been saying “Ey sis” in my head.🤦‍♀️ 😂 #rstats #rladies #todayyearsold #knitr

Riley Smith-Hunter (@rileymsmith19; 107): Nice point! I have a very similar workflow & am fairly strict, w/ myself & ppl I teach, about naming chunks & using section labels within R scripts, but never thought to implement ‘read_chunk’ to capitalize on my structural conventions #rstats #rmarkdown #knitr #learnsomethingnew

Dr. Michael Koontz (@_mikoontz; 61): @taddallas @Hao_and_Y @TrashBirdEcol @gabbspalomo Would love to see a .docx template bundled with RStudio/Rmarkdown/knitr that adds double spacing and line numbers though

Thomas J. Leeper (@thosjleeper; 52): Is there a non-hacky way to obtain all knitr chunk labels (or the whole chunks, or just the chunk headers) from outside a #knitr/#rmarkdown doc (e.g. by parsing a file)? I see knitr::all_labels() but that’s for use within a doc. #rstats

Ogi Moore (@ogimoore; 50): @beeonaposy What I am most jealous of is dynamic document generation, sure I can do something with Jupiter notebooks, but it’s definitely not a refined process like knitr+rmarkdown.

Jonathan Eyer (@jonathaneyer; 41): The beamer purity test is stupid but I will absolutely vote for any candidate who promises to use Rmarkdown or knitr in all gov presentations.

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 32): @choldgraf @gvwilson @SylvainCorlay @QuantStack Yes, it is entirely possible with R Markdown/knitr. See This should solve your problems 1 and 2. > For 3 (diagrams), there are plenty of R packages (e.g. > For 4, only with xaringan for now:

Félix M. (@felixmil; 30): @liz_herdter {skmir} also does a great job at it ! You can also return a table and pass it into knitr::kable in a Rmarkdown document !

Susannah Cowtan (she/her) (@SuusJC; 11): You know you have too many figures when you have to keep dropping \FloatBarrier into your knitr document just to be able to see the text anywhere near the figures which inspired it… #rstats #figurebloat #rladies

Flot Sam (@researchremora; 10): noxdown: negates all *down packages, because no one wants to feel down. > unwind: removes knitr, because we all need to, yes, unwind. > excelify: makes tibbles into Excel, because we want to excel. > All for the low, low price of $49.99 per month! But wait, if you subscribe now…

Stephen Martin (@smartin2018; 10): @bearloga Basically, any time you may have ‘pdf()’ or ‘png()’ to set up a plotting device, you use tikz instead. Works with knitr too. Sometimes you have to change the tikzEngine to match the latex engine (lualatex, xelatex, etc), but again - works really well.

Meme Overflow (@overflow_meme; 0/1): knitr function returns rendered LaTeX math in Rmarkdown?


Oran Wu Tang (@oranwutan; 51): A great tip for #Rstats and #rmarkdown users: if you can’t install LaTex (usually because admin privileges), then use tinytex package (tinytex::install_tinytex()). It makes a portable install of Tex, though you’ll have to be patient!

john “as b/4” fink (@adr; 20): love that there is something called “TinyTeX” and it takes up 178 megabytes

Zhi Yang (@zhiiiyang; 20): #xaringan Ninjas are very happy right now because the name makes searching for new materials and tutorials so much easier. 😊⚔️

Abhijit Dasgupta (@webbedfeet; 10): @wmlandau The issue was that I was using drake to render xaringan slides, and I had a data() inside one of my code chunks. Got around it. > The point that data() is creating the problem is not mentioned in ?make, which is why I missed it.The web page is clear. Thanks for the reply

Benjamin Wolfe (@BenjaminWolfe; 10): @RLesur @rstudio I’ve always had trouble rendering #xaringan slides in the native @rstudio browser. Any indication if the new one will fare better? (Maybe I could have changed a setting already to fix that…)
