Lukas PM Kremer (@LPMKremer; 786190): My first #rstats package📦 ggpointdensity is now on #CRAN 🎉. It provides a #ggplot2 geom that is a cross between a 2D density plot and a scatter plot: geom_pointdensity(). Useful to deal with overplotting without hiding outlier points. https://t.co/7hNZy3rTpy https://t.co/2AspdGU4wz

Innocenter Amima (@am_innocenter; 216): I have been tossing with this idea for months now🙃I finally finished creating my blog https://t.co/1G6qmP1uS6 and even made a post showing how I went about it https://t.co/y3zC7jfKKT Feel free to drop a comment #rstats #blogdown #AfricaRusers #HappyWeekends #CodingMilestones https://t.co/3zuZtCTIXo

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 150): @dataandme @andrewheiss @OleksiyAnokhin The recent releases of Hugo have bothered me a lot, too. If you prefer stability, I recommend that you remove the Homebrew version of Hugo (brew remove hugo), and install a fixed version that worked for you before: blogdown::install_hugo(version, use_brew = FALSE).

MarcinStepniak (@marcin_stepniak; 82): Not a final web address yet, but my personal web is live on-line. Any comments & suggestions are welcome! All done in #rstats blogdown using Hugo Academic template (https://t.co/G0Bbpw0jgJ). https://t.co/pdv6c0uScj

Benjamin Wolfe (@BenjaminWolfe; 73): #rstats folks: any quick examples of your favorite #shiny dashboards? I’m making the case for a robust ecosystem of #blogdown, #pkgdown, and #shiny at work, and I have tons of examples for the first 2 but shiny isn’t my forte yet.

Jamie Lingwood (@LingwoodJamie; 70): Thanks for sharing @veabrunsdon. Just finished creating my own website using @dsquintana’s fantastic thread on how to create your own personal website using blogdown. Easy to follow and create, even for an R novice like me 🤓 > 🕸️https://t.co/agt65qcoYD🕸️ https://t.co/zgveelw8CP

Kristen Osborne (@Kristen_Osb; 51): There’s an exciting #rstats user meetup in Adelaide on September 25 , which is one thing… But I’m supposed to talk about #blogdown and give my (dubious) wisdom 😄 > Anyone got blogdown tips/questions/annoyances that they’d like to share? https://t.co/jrj5JDqtm0

Benjamin Wolfe (@BenjaminWolfe; 50): Omg this is gorgeous and super informative… > @dcossyle a question for you: I’ve been looking to make a #blogdown site with the #academic theme, but the docs say to use .Rmarkdown files instead of .Rmd. > Are there any snags when you use it with .Rmd? > https://t.co/SFhD7qQ5UI https://t.co/OUiQA2MqSy

Vivek Das (@ivivek87; 21): @thebyrdlab Here you go: Link 1: https://t.co/1SQT9hkm54 > Link 2: https://t.co/jVs2y6xWVH > It’s all Blogdown+ Hugo + Github post site deployment. Good luck

Houston Haynes (@whiskersedge; 21): @AbelSquidHead @DonovanBrown I too am sensitive on a case by case basis. 😆 > Totally jelly over your beta access! I’ve signed up and I’m waiting to streamline my #rstats #blogdown site deployment into both Azure and AWS. 👍

Nicholas R. Davis (@DemocObserver; 21): @DavidPoe223 My own site is in html but I’ve looked at rmarkdown/blogdown as an alternative and I think it’s pretty accessible. Rstudio makes it easy to knit good looking output. Without git I’m not sure if you’ll need a ftp client to publish, will have to look into that.

Alison Hill (@apreshill; 20): @IsabellaGhement @r_medicine @chendaniely @ibddoctor Yes, blogdown with the Hugo academic theme! Thank you for noticing 💐

Benjamin Wolfe (@BenjaminWolfe; 20): @apreshill @dcossyle @georgecushen Oh, wonderful, thank you so much! > That means I can use Hugo / blogdown / academic with even less disruption to my status-quo workflow. https://t.co/wQTZvcyJol

Catherine Laing (@cathelaing24; 20): @LingwoodJamie @veabrunsdon @dsquintana This looks great! I use Google sites but might transfer to blogdown now I’ve seen this!

Wei Yang Tham (@wytham88; 10): @Andrew___Baker OK so you have a bunch of folders where your blogdown Project lives, like in the screenshot I attached? you wanna copy and paste the xaringan files into “static”, then push them to github https://t.co/QLbfXYqnet

Wei Yang Tham (@wytham88; 10): @AllbriteAllday @medewittjr @Andrew___Baker https://t.co/rfDU2iKIIU > the URL to get to the presentation will be: https://t.co/0XaiuRSyXB

Wei Yang Tham (@wytham88; 10): @AllbriteAllday @medewittjr @Andrew___Baker What I’ve done is to host the presentation on my website. You have blogdown right? I have subfolders in “static” by pdf, html and then in this case copy everything into the html folder.

Benjamin Wolfe (@BenjaminWolfe; 10): @pmbaumgartner: thank you for your cautionary tales at https://t.co/1PKlZwDmNI! > I’m considering creating a blog w/ Hugo, blogdown, academic theme + xaringan (saw your post on that, too!). > Does the combo still work for you? > #thread 12

Lorenz Walthert (@lorenzwalthert; 10): commit: https://t.co/bP5MYjRFzW how it looks now: https://t.co/xPePk08cSB https://t.co/Joo3cKERp1

Luke W. Johnston (@lwjohnst; 10): @thebyrdlab @rstats4ds Depends how your rmarkdown website is generated. Using blogdown? Bookdown? Or the original rmarkdown website set up?

Vivek Das (@ivivek87; 10): @thebyrdlab If I understand correctly the troubleshooting then you will need to change settings in your “config.*” file for changing “global settings”. You have an updated version of that blog. My bad I put the old one earlier. > Updated link: https://t.co/ymVt6ygZ1K https://t.co/Q4eOqaIKUs

Jessica Streeter (@phillynerd; 10): @NayBiggs If you feeling fancy you can do it in r! blogdown and host on netlify for free. I’m sure there’s something on connecting Google analytics too.

Will Wheeler (@willwheels; 10): @grant_mcdermott @Andrew___Baker I will, but it might be a little while. I think I’m going to be using the academic theme with blogdown (published through GH). I experimented with simpler themes, but I think I want the added functionality, at the expense of upfront work.

Alex Albright (@AllbriteAllday; 10): @wytham88 @medewittjr @Andrew___Baker I do have blogdown! The font/styling/colors looked different when I tried to put them onto my blogdown website. Couldn’t figure out why and ended up giving up. On my to do list to explain thoroughly & ask Rstudio community at some point.

Dilsher Dhillon (@TexanDhillon; 10): @DavidPoe223 You would barely need to use GitHub to manage it (add commit and push are pretty much the only commands you will ever have to use). https://t.co/VG2eCK1Ain this pretty much walks you through step by step.

Howard Baik (@howard_baik; 0/1): #rstats is there a way to “prettify” code chunks inside a #blogdown post? I’m using academic theme for my blog


Uryu Shinya (@u_ribo; 324): 出版前に内容をインターネット上で公開する書籍が海外では多い。特にR界隈はbookdownが普及していて、それが標準とも言えそう。 読者に興味を持ってもらいつつ、SNSによる拡散を狙い、最初の売り上げを伸ばす戦術として成立するのかなと 思いましたまる ネットでも読めるけど、やっぱり買ってしまう💸

Brian Weatherson (@bweatherson; 202): As part of teaching myself bookdown, I decided I’d make prettier HTML versions of some @gutenberg_org philosophy books. So here is a version of Hume’s Dialogues. > https://t.co/FONHhuP94W

廖顯禕 / Shen-yi Liao (@liaoshenyi; 140): I start teaching tomorrow (again), so obviously I am very anxious, so obviously I am working on updating my website, and so obviously I am now thinking about redoing the whole thing in R -> bookdown…

Dr. Ryan “Class Started” Straight (@RyanStraight; 52): Want to up your presentation game this year? 🐱‍👤 Xaringan by @xieyihui to the rescue. It totally changed how I present content to my students. (Ie, it’s much more interactive, fun, and reproducible now.) https://t.co/LPbzEGebVj #RStats

Nathan Brouwer (@lobrowR; 43): any recommended task schedulers for #rstats and GitHub? I invariably forget to render my course notes to bookdown and/or push to git 😂😂 and would like to automatically run a script that does this

Phil McAleer (@McAleerP; 31): @ceptional Might not be what you are after exactly but if you use webex package in RMarkdown you can create formative MCQs etc for students, & embed the html in Moodle. This might give the idea (https://t.co/BgD2pEbgRc - see L2 practical). Moodle is clunky, so we changed to bookdown.

Tiago Ventura (@_Tiagoventura; 30): @maricarvalb @relances @guilhermejd1 @rationalexpec @KimJoaoUn @claudferraz @fbizzarroneto Criei um repositorio no github com um formato de e-book via bookdown. Quem estiver afim de participar, escreve ai o email do github que mando o convite.

Michael Sumner (@mdsumner; 30): I found it, each subsequent new page in bookdown requires > rglwidget(reuse = TRUE) > I suppose because the resources for previous plots are in the previous HTML page, and not available to the current one without this

Erika Roper 🦜🏘🌳 (@_erikaroper; 30): @JasonRoncancioM @AcademicChatter You could write it in Bookdown using RMarkdown. Or you could make a Shiny app for it.

Grant McDermott (@grant_mcdermott; 20): @wytham88 FWIW, you need to switch from Bookdown’s default rendering approach to “Knit and Merge” (K-M) to use subdirectories. See https://t.co/0vwAwRHXHP > With that done, see here for examples: https://t.co/P3tkAfXNUT

kotaro (@kotaro_holland; 20): https://t.co/OMtaUnBf1n nbsphinxで作ったけど、bookdownで再作成してみようかな。

Emily Riederer (@EmilyRiederer; 20): @RyanEs @apreshill This is a pretty minimal example but explains the parts: https://t.co/YMdlnfUIy8 I’ll look for a better / more involved one to DM you

Oscar Baruffa 📊🇳🇱 (@oscarb123; 11): Dear #rstats #bookdown creators, what software do you write your long form content in? I’m finding writing directlyin the rmd script/s quite challenging. Cc @SteveDX @hadleywickham @xieyihui

Jesus M. Castagnetto (@jmcastagnetto; 10): @BeaMilz @rstatstweet Might help you to look at @xieyihui Bookdown package (docs: https://t.co/XbvXKU1Bjn), perhaps with some modifications to the base template. Also, see https://t.co/zdYIE8QfHU (by @healthandstats). Finally: https://t.co/BMMMz6fEs7 (by @old_man_chester)

Grant McDermott (@grant_mcdermott; 10): @andrew_leach @AllbriteAllday You might be interested in thesisdown (or one of the derivatives). It’s based on bookdown so native support for bibtex: https://t.co/vH0ljhf8rN

JEMSU (@Jemus42; 10): If you’re considering to build a #bookdown book via travis, and you want LaTeX/PDF output, and you also have silly specific font preferences, prepare for a world of pain unless you know how travis/xelatex/ubuntu/fonts wokr/interact. Nice when it finally builds though.

Mara Averick (@dataandme; 10): @ZachFeldman3 @JennyBryan @jimhester_ The former (re. workspace) is covered in that first chapter (it’s not long — just a bookdown book that truly covers What They Forgot!) and .Renviron is covered here: https://t.co/A7XsuhYgWq > Not being withholding, there’s just no way I can give a more parsimonious explanation.

Leo Kiernan (@DrLeo037; 10): @GReales7 @rstatstweet https://t.co/uBJcGsn7gp

Brian Weatherson (@bweatherson; 10): @jweisber No that doesn’t work either. I’m pretty sure bookdown generates different phone and tablet versions.

Armando (@elabuel_o; 10): @stabridis77 Muy interesante su pregunta y planteamientos. > Yo diría que hay herramientas para divulgar: para no estar a expensas de Nexos et al., están Github (wiki, pages), markdown, bookdown, knitr y demás (que además tienen ventajas de control de versiones y son colaborativas)

Jannik (@JannikBuhr; 10): @LisaDeBruine @aRtofdataviz @DurhamPsych I am about to do something similar with a bookdown book embedded on my website that gets filled up with the things we cover during the course :) Super excited!

Michael Dorman (@MichaelDorman84; 10): @oscarb123 @SteveDX @hadleywickham @xieyihui I’m using ‘gedit’ #bookdown


paul cross (@paulchafeecross; 140): Went down a long rabbit hole on character encoding in latex, rmd, knitr, and RefmanageR. No solution yet. For those 3 followers that understand this tweet you probably know my pain

Johannes Björk (@AwfulDodger; 51): gam folks: do you know if there’s an easy way to make nice knitr/rmarkdown tables from gam.check(m) and anova.gam(m)? There’s the itsadug::gamtabs but that’s summary.gam(m) @ucfagls @noamross @ericJpedersen

jon (@jarana; 22): knitR + gather question! This code outputs perfectly in the console. But knitr errors when I gather a tibble in Chunk 2. Saying it can’t find my newly declared Gather-key and Gather-value. https://t.co/rTczjXLJmN #rstats

Jonathan Weisberg (@jweisber; 20): @bweatherson Super easy! One thing I realized about .Rmd vs plain .md is it takes the pain out of tables! I just put the contents into a data.frame and call knitr’s kable() funcrtion. It draws the table for you!

Brooke P Deak (@Deakology; 151): In an #R meeting today, we went over a package called Xaringan. I chuckled a bit loudly, because it’s based on Sharingan dojutsu from an anime called Naruto, and I recognised the logo. > Then…just for a moment…in a room full of nerds, I was the nerdiest. > 🤓👍

Grant McDermott (@grant_mcdermott; 70): @Andrew___Baker HTML is a much safer experience IMO. For backup: 1) Easy to host on GitHub and render directly via GH pages or https://t.co/fVQFvh7W4I. 2) Even if your slide engine doesn’t support PDF conversion (e.g. xaringan), it’s pretty easy to convert from HTML: https://t.co/mtdgDtiLDs

Timothy Tsai (@seizethedatum; 42): Working on my presentation for #rmedicine 2019 - using #rstudiocloud for interactive demos and xaringan for slides! #rstats #DataScience

Tiffany Timbers (@TiffanyTimbers; 11): .@xieyihui - how do I pronounce Xaringan? I am teaching it again this year and I want to have confidence when I say it outloud 😊 > #rstats

Andrew Baker (@Andrew___Baker; 10): Who has uploaded xaringan slides to netlify?

Stephen Vaisey (@vaiseys; 10): @torkildl @grrrck This all happened in about a 2-week period. But xaringan is easier to customize than ioslides with the package I mentioned above. Totally worth a look.

Sergio Oller (@zeehio_; 10): @TiffanyTimbers @rstatstweet @xieyihui Good point! Based on the phonetic transcription written at the top of the Xaringan readme, yes, it sounds like Sharingan 🙂.

Tiffany Timbers (@TiffanyTimbers; 10): @zeehio_ @rstatstweet @xieyihui But do I pronounce Xaringan the same as Sharingan?

Alex Albright (@AllbriteAllday; 10): @medewittjr @Andrew___Baker Agree that you should present from a browser to do this! I tried a xaringan presentation in May & it looked v diff when I presented from a USB on a PC. (HDMI wasn’t working. 😳) Also, FYI if you save a backup PDF, it may look different (mine had diff, suboptimal sizing/spacing).

Mike Carter (@cartermaclab; 10): @paulgribble @JCashaback I’ve been using Beamer for my slides for the last few years but have actually just switched to using R Markdown and the xaringan package…so far I’m liking the switch
