Gavin Masterson (@gavinprm; 30): @SalamanderJenn I’m planning to use Netlify. There are examples of Netlify-deployed websites on Github. From what I understand, if you use the R approach via the blogdown pkg, you serve_site(), build the content and then copy the “public” folder to Netlify and it deploys.

Andrey Chetverikov (@ralfer; 30): @AgVelasque @dsquintana I used Wordpress and switched to Hugo (that is behind the blogdown in this tutorial). The advantage of the latter is that it’s low maintenance. Once you’ve made the site, it’s gonna stay that way. With Wordpress you need to update (because security), and that can break things.

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 21): Oh, man, this was exactly what I needed today for moving my TOC away from the top of a #blogdown post. Thanks so much @grrrck! https://t.co/2k3VLWN3Y8

Sean Davis (@seandavis12; 31): When using rmarkdown, included graphics end up as data urls (so embedded in the HTML). When using bookdown::gitbook(), it appears that graphics end up as simple urls. Is there a way to get the rmarkdown behavior with bookdown::gitbook()? #rstats @rstudio @xieyihui

Alison Hill (@apreshill; 30): @EvaMaeRey It is pretty finicky- looks like you may not have an empty line above? Tough to tell from screenshots without seeing code > “It must be in a separate paragraph with empty lines above and below it. ” - from the bookdown book

Colin Madland (@colinmadland; 21): @RyanStraight @JohnStewartPhD @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign I’ll be looking into bookdown. Currently using pandoc to convert from md.

Mike Mahoney (@MikeMahoney218; 21): Published a new draft of “INTRODUCTION TO DATA EXPLORATION AND ANALYSIS WITH R” - I think this draft better incorporates the data analysis cycle framework into its structure. Feedback always appreciated! https://t.co/SpErk6POUl

🄼🄰🅃🅃 🄷🄸🄻🄻 (@InsectEcology; 20): @ozjimbob yeah, can use git to sync with a local copy and open it up in your editor of choice. but overleaf itself is a pretty handy web-based latex environment - with tools for collab. I’ve started using that, and bookdown in R for a nice blend of markdown and latex.

Caleb Moses (@Caleb_Speak; 20): @XemMd @f2harrell @statsepi @jd_wilko @dailyzad This is the page of notes I usually refer to: https://t.co/HwDWDRZDmp > But yes, the trick is to use brms to create ordered categories. The trick is quite cunning, but it works well in practice!

Dr. Ryan “It’s Summer Break” Straight (@RyanStraight; 20): @JohnStewartPhD @colinmadland @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign Not to mention Bookdown can a) automatically produce PDF and ePub versions of Gitbooks, but b) you can easily swap different styles (like Tufte or a memoir).

John Stewart (@JohnStewartPhD; 20): @colinmadland @RyanStraight @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign Yeah that looks good. Ryan, how much R is involved in bookdown. I like the idea of something that’s as close to pure md as possible because that minimizes learning curve for others.

Jonah Duckles (@jduckles; 20): @KatheMathBio I tend to poke around R package repos with Travis config files to learn more. The deploy hook is super handy for bookdown repos. You can use it to deploy the html to S3 for example. @hadleywickham’s book repos have this setup I believe.

espinielli (@espinielli; 20): @EvaMaeRey Does the example in https://t.co/Thb1M5SjBl work? Are you using the correct ‘output:’ in your yaml? HTH

Yohan J. Rodríguez (@hasdid; 11): #R #Automated | Feature Engineering and Selection: A Practical Approach for Predictive Models https://t.co/fFXNhA1u6U

atusy (@Atsushi776; 11): @niszet0 あった。 If you have options that need to be the result of an evaluated R expression, you can use !expr, which tells the yaml package that it needs to parse and evaluate that option. Below is an example that uses a random theme for the HTML output: https://t.co/jlmzCvFP3Q

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 11): I love that I can use Ctrl + Alt + I to split an existing chunk in two as well as insert new chunks. It’s working great for converting a draft blog post into an actual blog post! #rmarkdown #rstats > (See example in section of the R Markdown book: https://t.co/iBrQQGW7Wh)

John Stewart (@JohnStewartPhD; 10): @colinmadland @RyanStraight @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign Aesthetically, I like bookdown best of the options I’ve looked at. But I think the md Grav workflow Colin is using might be lowest bar for forking.

John Stewart (@JohnStewartPhD; 10): @RyanStraight @colinmadland @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign I’d like to move https://t.co/g6qKtZxVhj into a more forkable format than its current WP w/plugins build. Will play with grav and bookdown as options. Hax also.

John Stewart (@JohnStewartPhD; 10): @RyanStraight @colinmadland @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign Literally was just looking at one of your bookdown sites for the code camp and wondering the same thing.

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 10): @j0h0w self_contained: true has been the biggest drawback of xaringan: https://t.co/K3aDybrSjI I’ll try to imporve it in future: https://t.co/iCTdqQW91D For now, perhaps exporting to PDF via pagedown::chrome_print() helps a bit if you want a single file: https://t.co/59rE42DTfB


Nicholas Tierney (@nj_tierney; 231): After a nice suggestion from @grrrck re @xieyihui ’s way to generate verbatim code chunks (https://t.co/P8QE2YPVfY) I thought, how cool would it be to type verbatim = TRUE instead? > If folks want to chime in, here is an rstudio community post: https://t.co/gViCXeuSxH > #rstats

Dr. Ryan “It’s Summer Break” Straight (@RyanStraight; 31): @colinmadland @JohnStewartPhD @KavuBob @hibbittsdesign RStudio uses Pandoc to convert from Rmd to md to HTML/PDF/whatever, using the Knitr package. Super quick and efficient, especially with large documents. No command line stuff, just hitting the Knit button. :) Hooray for YAML/TOML!

Heidi Seibold (@HeidiBaya; 30): @annakrystalli @SoftwareSaved It’s written with knitr, uses a seed, is part of the R package it describes, was openly written using version control (SVN, R-Forge) and is available in an open access journal (@up_jors). > So I guess, yes.

Tinashe M. Tapera (@TaperaTinashe; 30): Alternately, I always start off with an .Rmd to encourage literate programming and force myself to follow narrow, achievable goals, even if it’s a small handful of operations. I then use knitr::purl() to strip all of the markdown and generate an executable R script. https://t.co/EEIztL34Jo

Thomas Mock 👨🏼‍💻 (@thomas_mock; 21): @a_neisse @GueyeNono @rstudio You can use a method like read_chunk() readLines() or source() to reference an external R script as a RMarkdown chunk. > This external script could be executed as a local job and read back into global environment. > https://t.co/L9ZfHZIZUs

Emma Rand (@er13_r; 41): @LittleMissData @kierisi I’m giving a “An Introduction to Reproducible Analyses in R” workshop and given much previous material to work with this should be quick. But no, I decided to use xaringan for the first time. Cue days of playing with every option, learning remark.js

Martin John Hadley (they/them) (@martinjhnhadley; 30): My worst {xaringan} habit is changing the slide heading from # to ### to make content fit on the slide. > Like if this is acceptable. Reply if it defeats the point of {xaringan}

Alison Hill (@apreshill; 21): @EvaMaeRey @benmarwick @espinielli I don’t think similar capabilities exist (I believe the functionality builds on inherent pandoc functions, which xaringan does not call). For xaringan, I do use template slides a lot to reduce repetition: https://t.co/26QgaZqWol

Stas Kolenikov (@StatStas; 21): Quick #rstats question: can I stick runtime: shiny into a browser presentation – ioslides, revealjs, xaringan, shower?

Jake Thompson (@wjakethompson; 20): @dataandme @koli_ajaykumar I made the slides in Keynote, and just copy and pasted code and results in. Not very efficient, but got the job done! xaringan is forever on my list of packages to figure out to make this process easier!

Gina Reynolds (@EvaMaeRey; 20): Thank you all @apreshill @benmarwick @espinielli It’s the ymal indeed and now it is working! I’m wondering too, if there is a way to use this behavior with #xaringan. I want to use markdown syntax in fig captions in xaringan too. Seems like (ref:foo) doesn’t work. Another way?

Fernando A Barbalho (@barbalhofernand; 20): @BeaMilz @leofn3 Vou aprender o xaringan o curso que vocês ofereceram no SER
