Hadley Wickham (@hadleywickham; 39138): 4. If you want to do more, make a nice personal website — a good place to start is blogdown + academic theme. @apreshill has a great tutorial to get you started: https://t.co/ckpuEcWdet

If you don’t know already, the #blogdown book by @ProQuesAsker , @xieyihui, & @apreshill is an excellent place to start! #RLadies 💜 https://t.co/RtGZ67vTGP

Nick Strayer (@NicholasStrayer; 132): Any persons involved in #blogdown specific #hugo theme development. Do you have thoughts on proper development protocols? I’m thinking about ditching the standard theme-to-repo format for a {usethis} style #rstats pkg with a ‘use_theme()` function to ease development/ adoption.

Yanxian Li (@yanxian_l; 80): Finally, my personal website is up and running. Thank you, @dsquintana, for the nice tutorial on building a personal website using the #blogdown package. Thanks are also due to @georgecushen for building the #hugoAcademic template and @Netlify for hosting the website. 1/n

Zhi Yang | DM me abt @USCBiostat & DS interviews (@zhiiiyang; 60): @JonTheGeek @apreshill I got a deal then. I learned both #xaringan and #blogdown from her in one day. https://t.co/LHMEtaptk7

Los Angeles R Users (@la_Rusers; 53): If you’re not on Google, You don’t exist. Do u have a portfolio website ready to showcase projects?

Sébastien Rochette (@StatnMap; 41): @ijlyttle Absolutely. Great idea. I would recommend using the code of my blog post: https://t.co/NqCM7anc0l This codefolding works for bookdown, blogdown and pkgdown on my side. Would be happy to contribute.

Sharon Machlis (@sharon000; 32): Netlify is experiencing failures for what they originally said was a ‘small number’ of sites - but the problem may be more widespread. Many users of the #rstats blogdown package host on Netlify. https://t.co/I3Jk4uM6GN

Mara Averick (@dataandme; 31): @abiyugiday @rstudio @xieyihui Nothing springs to mind after a quick skim, and I don’t have time to dig into it at the moment (it’s been a long time since I’ve worked with an Rmarkdown site that wasn’t blogdown-related), but I’d recommend linking to your repo in the issue, and maybe posting to community

Los Angeles R Users (@la_Rusers; 31): Two of our organizers @Emil_Hvitfeldt and @zhiiiyang will be there to help you. > - @Emil_Hvitfeldt will be giving #rstats tutorials to get you ready for the weekend-long #hackathon. > - Remember to ask @zhiiiyang if you’d like to post results & slides online using #Blogdown. https://t.co/oQym3VonIX

Kathleen Wendt (@wendtke; 21): I knew I should have made a personal website with #rstats and #blogdown. Winter break goal. https://t.co/bNKuB02SYr

Hlynur Hallgrímsson (@hlynur; 21): Wait, I just did a Ctrl+Alt+R to a run of some very computationally heavy #rstats code in an #Rmd, assuming THAT would be cached since I had cache=TRUE for the chunks in question. Now when I #blogdown::serve_site I get the old results. Is there anything I can do to not run it x2?

Jon Harmon (@JonTheGeek; 20): @zhiiiyang @apreshill Oh jeez! If I’d remembered @apreshill held a workshop about it, I definitely would have started there! She (virtually) held my hand into blogdown, it makes sense that she also covered this!

Jose Manuel Vera (@verajosemanuel; 20): @_johnmackintosh Happy user of blogdown + Hugo. Choose a theme, do some tweaking, connect to netlify, and ready to blog…

Tiago Henriques (@Balgan; 20): I’m also happy to have finally moved of medium and my blog just uses Hugo with blogdown #rlang

Zhi Yang | DM me abt @USCBiostat & DS interviews (@zhiiiyang; 10): @AkilaWijerathna I just used the most popular academic theme as it is by @georgecushen using #blogdown and @Netlify. Everything is free except for your time. Lol. Highly recommend following step-by-step instructions from this website created by @apreshill https://t.co/HdMOEmT34K

Greg Wilson (@gvwilson; 20): Upshot: \section inside \quote works fine w/ publisher’s template in manual examples, but H2 in ‘>’ blockquote in R Markdown passed through bookdown+pandoc+xelatex fails because it can’t find tikzlibrarytopaths.code.tex and this is why we can’t have nice things. https://t.co/pJr0udjU85

Dr Gavin Simpson (@ucfagls; 0/1): @scienceclar How are you going to write it? LaTeX is very verbose if you’re typing it all out just for the text formatting. Pandoc Markdown (or Bookdown if you need R) is easier to type. You’ll need some LaTeX to modify the template Pandoc uses though.

Susan Holmes 📗💻 (@SherlockpHolmes; 62): @aaronquinlan So I teach from an iPad and I import the pdf made from knitr (slidy slides) as landscape files, then as I teach I use these as my canvas to write on (like a blackboard) during lectures, I’ll send you an example if you like.

Danny Brent (@H2O_econ; 20): @JonathanColmer @cjwich @ArielOrtizBobea Data work on this project 1. data cleaning and descriptive work in R 2. panel data regressions in Stata 3. figures based on coefficients in R > My initial plan was actually to everything in knitr - not sure how/why that fell by the wayside

Martin Telefont (@martintelefont; 11): So, say somebody that’s an expert python dev wants to refresh his R skills. What are good books/resources to start from? I am especially dying shiny and knitr for later use. Totally not asking for me, is for a friend (cough cough)

Martin Tomko (@dinomirMT; 10): @nordholmen @emdupre_ @choldgraf @johnjarmitage @QuantStack @banesullivan @matplotlib @eLifeInnovation @NokomeBentley Also, managed to once get a workflow with R and knitr and latex and git to work with overleaf. That was great, but very complex and fragile. Most co-authors would not touch this. Cannot get this with python easily. Need the code<->text oscillation to be smooth

JM Prada (@EpiPixels; 10): @MadlenUche @epi_twit If you open it in Rstudio, you can choose output option (pdf/html). I believe with beamer/knitr.

Nicole Radziwill (@nicoleradziwill; 10): @Brampton93 even the older wikis have that part fortunately… that was a feature of e.g. twiki back in the early 00s. i keep thinking “this should be easy” - you know, take existing flat file web-editable wiki code, hook it up to knitr engine… but alas i am not smart enough to program it

Phil McAleer (@McAleerP; 10): @_stephanieboyle @dalejbarr @LisaDeBruine Would need to test but your version looks like the knitr::kable() output and the first version is more akin to something else. Check your package versions (knitr and markdown) and defaults?


Christophe Dervieux (@chrisderv; 43): @ma_salmon You’re welcome ! No doubt this could brake a lot of rmarkdown document with #rstats users updating TexLive using #tinytex and working with pandoc 2.7 bundled in @rstudio IDE.

Eu não faria a troca num mundo pré essas coisas porque, de fato, o R base é um inferno. Mas chegou num ponto que parece estritamente dominante.
