Alison Hill (@apreshill; 489165): I’m thrilled to share that the @RStudio Education team has a shiny 🆕 #blogdown website 🎉: > Come for the content and resources for learners ➕ teachers, stay for the tiny drawings by @dcossyle 🎨 > Welcome post here:

Angela Li (@CivicAngela; 9827): Materials from tonight’s @RLadiesChicago blogdown workshop can be found at! > Thanks to @apreshill and @joyceisms for their materials I adapted and modified. Learn how to make a new #rstats website for this academic year!

Jim Hester (@jimhester_; 300): Big thanks to > @apreshill for putting her site’s code online, it was a great thing to work off of! > @xieyihui for creating and maintaining blogdown > @GeorgeCushen for the Academic theme

Bea. (@Chucheria; 292): I am happy to say that the new version of the R-Ladies website will keep all content in GitHub so any person in charge of change the information does not need to know anything about websites or blogdown. This will give us so much freedom as a community.

Briana Mittleman (@brimittleman; 194): Thank you @CivicAngela for teaching an awesome #blogdown workshop tonight at the meetup with @RLadiesChicago! Everyone look out for my fancy website, coming soon! #WomenWhoCode

Dorris Scott (@Dorris_Scott; 93): I do love making a website with blogdown! Which is why I have several blogdown websites😆. I didn’t just randomly make them; they each have a purpose 😅. Here are some materials to get you started!

Oscar Baruffa 📊🇳🇱 (@oscar_b123; 80): Figured out basic Bookdown, next stop is blogdown!

R-Ladies Chicago (@RLadiesChicago; 61): Come through for our first of two events this month! @CivicAngela will show us how to build a personal website with Blogdown 👩‍💻

Ya-Wen Yama Chang (@yama_yawenchang; 60): Excited to share my academic website, built from the blogdown package in R: > I started learning R programming three weeks ago and are surprised by how amazing it is to complete creative works. Thank you @dsquintana for making this thorough tutorial!

R-Ladies Chicago (@RLadiesChicago; 44): We had a great time last night building blogdown websites in #rstats! Thanks again to @UChicagoMPCS and @UChicagoCAPP for hosting us. If you missed it, you can find resources from our #RLadies workshop at!

Will Chase (@W_R_Chase; 30): @dataandme Ooh boy we really are nearing completion. Today I socialized the site by adding meta tags for twitter cards and such. Followed this excellent tutorial

Los Angeles R Users (@la_Rusers; 23): @zhiiiyang @RLadiesSB Oo @zhiiiyang is talking about this great blogdown resource from @apreshill #rstats

Gustavo (@ogustavo_com; 21): @dikayodata @MedillSchool @squarespace Yeah… I’m good at modifying a template of a static web page to suit my needs/wants, but I can’t do it from scratch. I used the #blogdown package in #rstats to create a few webpages. It relies on Hugo, which makes it easier to understand/modify

Solomon Kurz (@SolomonKurz; 20): @drrachelbrenner With R, you can make your own academic website and blog with the #blogdown package. And with #bookdown, you can publish your own online books.

Gemma Cantan (@littlebitsocial; 20): So today I decided to do some tweaking to my blog to now find that it’s not working! Feeling like a muppet! But we learn from trying, right? #blogdown #muppet #bloggerlife

Benjamin Wolfe (@BenjaminWolfe; 11): quick question #thread, 13 > @kirorisk’s Fuse.js ( is the #javascript fuzzy-search library that powers search for @georgecushen’s amazing @GoHugoIO #academic theme (used by many #rstats #blogdown site). Such fantastic, vital tech.

Owen Churches (@OwenChurches; 11): @Kristen_Osb Really looking forward to it! #blogdown in #rstats in Adelaide at Lot Fourteen, 5:30 Wednesday September 25.

Joey Stanley (@joey_stan; 10): *blogdown. Wow.


Earo Wang (@earowang; 24340): I haven’t written a book yet, but I’ve created my first-ever #bookdown website for my thesis 📔 . It’s been a fruitful program. Thanks to ppl who helped me all along. Inspired by @lazappi , beeswarm plots of git commits, with annotations. #thesisdone

Oscar Baruffa 📊🇳🇱 (@oscar_b123; 9214): Hello #rstats fans! I am writing a free book to help introduce R programmers to using Twitter for fun and profit. It’s going to be a super simple guide. ⤵️

One R Tip a Day (@RLangTip; 7326): YaRrr!, The Pirate’s Guide to R, by @YaRrrBook #rstats

Michael Lopez (@StatsbyLopez; 393): Legler and Roback’s book is free and a great resource for stats students who want more than multiple regression (, free!!). Gelman/Hill’s book worthwhile too (

Karl Broman (@kwbroman; 313): If you want to get together and write a book, use #bookdown. I’ll lead a workshop for you and your authors if need be.

Michael Dorman (@MichaelDorman84; 284): Revising the “Spatial #rstats programming” course materials for next semester, to use ‘stars’ for working with rasters @edzerpebesma + in ‘bookdown’ format @xieyihui . Work in progress, any comments and ideas welcome! URL is same as before 👇

Dr. Sam Tyner (@sctyner; 115): Folks who have written books w/ #bookdown, how do you convert b/w output formats? (HTML -> PDF) It seems a lot harder than just switching to bookdown::pdf_book. I’m running into tons of small LaTeX issues (e.g. GIFs in HTML don’t work in LaTeX, the & symbol, etc) #help #rstats

cmsadler (@cmsadler; 52): I’m wondering how often people use #Jupyter notebooks for publishing reports and books. I see notebooks used in exploratory fashion, mostly. And I hear a lot more about publishing with rmarkdown and bookdown from the #rstats community, but not so much for Jupyter. #DataScience

Alison Hill (@apreshill; 51): @ryangarnett78 All these recs are good and I’ll add another one: the gt package- I used for this purpose recently within bookdown and worked well for me

Axel-Cleris Gailloty (@cleris_mr; 51): I wanted to publish a #python project as an online jupyter-book. I spent hours trying to install #ruby & #gem to then install #jekyll to render the book which finally didn’t work. Guess what : I finally did my project with #Rstats #bookdown and hosted at

Ryan Travis (@fledglingStat; 40): @StatsbyLopez Here’s a nice little (free) book on the topic

f0nzie@OilGainsAnalytics (@OilGains; 33): Just added the most common activation functions using #rstats #rTorch to bookdown “Minimal rTorch Tutorial”, this page: > Activation functions coded & plotted (ggplot2, matplotlib) via #RStudio from the same notebook using #Rmarkdown (100% reproducible)

UBC Master of Data Science (@UBCMDS; 30): Vincenzo here again as this week’s Twitter curator! Random fact: my most used tool as of late is probably #bookdown.

SethGitter (@SethGitter; 30): Happy national talk like a pirate day! If you are Statalubber. There’s YaRrr! a Pirate’s Guide to R to get you started on your voyage

Oscar Baruffa 📊🇳🇱 (@oscar_b123; 21): Dear #rstats #boookdown peeps, I need some advice. I want to publish a book, and code is on github. Not sure if i should be publishing from Rstudio to, or configure to display book from github? 3rd option is via github pages. ⤵️

Alison Hill (@apreshill; 20): @JennyBryan @STAT545 Those were fun to learn how to make with the gt package in bookdown, plus the htmltools package: (thanks to @riannone and @jcheng for the help on those!)

Deirdre Toher (@dtoher; 0/2): If I produce teaching notes in #rstats using bookdown, any suggestions for getting html output into VLEs while keeping the ability to change fonts/sizes background colour etc for accessibility?

Paul Lemmens (@paullemmens; 0/1): Exact same #rstats code under W10 and WSL (ubuntu 18.04) w/ eqv. R and pkgs versions. Under WSL the bookdown render errors on a cont. value to discr. scale but W10 renders just fine. Traceback not really helpful. How to debug THAT? @JennyBryan @hadleywickham @romain_francois


Ladislas Nalborczyk (@lnalborczyk; 23): #Rstats #knitr #rmarkdown question: is it possible to include a Figure caption without including the plot?

Wit Jakuczun (@WitJakuczun; 22): @streamlit Looks like #knitr and #rnotebook by @rstudio. #rstats #python

fuuuumin (@fuuuumin314; 10): knitr噛ませるとdplyrがobject見つからないよって帰ってくる謎バグと戦っている。 もうマジ無理、baseに逃げよう。締切やばいし

Adrien Treuille (@myelbows; 10): @WitJakuczun @streamlit @rstudio Yes! #knitr and #rnotebook were big inspirations, as were @elmlang, @reactjs , @observablehq , @ProjectJupyter, @GoogleColab, and @heroku! Excited to share more about the tech on Oct 1st! 🤖

Joyce Robbins (@jtrnyc; 10): @sctyner If you keep it really basic then you can just switch, but the fancier you get, the less compatible they are. knitr::include_graphics for all images (not ![]() ) helps keep images working in both systems

atusy (@Atsushi776; 10): @kazutan @yutannihilation @masato_takahash results=‘asis’してcat(’<em>foo</em>’)すると<em><em>foo</em></em>になってしまいます.htmltoolsを使うとknit_print.htmlはknitr::asis_outputとhtmltools::htmlPreserveを組み合わせているので,results=‘asis’不要で*も守れて無難です. どっちが良いかはケースバイケース?

Dan Miller (@data_nurse; 0/1): Dumb #rstats Twitter question: thrilled to finally update to win 10 at work 🤔(and finally be able to use @rstudio) but networked PC refusing to install a couple of packages in my default lib (DT/knitr). I can get them to install in a temp folder… 12


Tim Hosgood (@tjohnhos; 10): @ryankeleti literally took me longer to remove all traces of MacTeX than to install TinyTeX and all the packages needed to build my thesis, and i saved about 10gb of disk space. thanks for the tip!

ryan keleti (@ryankeleti; 10): @tjohnhos looks sweet, but probably not what you are looking for

Zhi Yang (@zhiiiyang; 30): @TiffanyTimbers @groundwalkergmb @ProjectJupyter You can do interactive coding within slides using xaringan and learnr. Here is an example made by my friend te teach medical school students R.

Andrew Stewart (@ajstewart_lang; 10): The unit covers Data Wrangling, the GLM, Mixed Models, Data Viz (including animations), Data Simulation, and using Binder and Xaringan for reproducible environments and presentations. You can view the slides in .pdf format in a new tab via the RStudio Files pane. 34

Cap’n Blackheart Bette (@cantabile; 10): Slide test! > Will push more when I touch down in Germany. Will code it from my notebook on the plane. >

Dr. Sam Tyner (@sctyner; 10): @jtrnyc @rensa_co I don’t. Sorry. I usually use xaringan for HTML slides and I’ve never had a problem converting those to PDF!

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 20): @zhiiiyang @apreshill @Brightspeaking My blog is 14 years old. Medium is 7 years old. But that (platforms come and go) is only a small problem. There are deeper problems of Medium in my eyes (platforms offering more and more candies):

Ali Twelvetrees (@dozenoaks; 10): @quantixed I guess it is an unpleasant bug in Wordpress if you specified the language in the tags… my knowledge of Wordpress ends here! It seems like a fix might be painful. Yihui Xe is the best source for R formatting/publishing

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 10): @ProfGaelle @ac_maclachlan @rstats4ds @nicebread303 I’d recommend saveRDS() instead of save(): unless you are sure load() won’t silently override your existing objects.
