Arielle Dror (@arielle_dror; 27861): Check out a new R package that I created with @sophiatannir! NwslR has datasets on team performance and player statistics for the #NWSL. We’re hoping to make it easier for fans and analysts of the league to get the information they want to know. #rstats

Bradley Boehmke (@bradleyboehmke; 16047): Check out the supplementary website for Hands-On Machine Learning with R. @bgreenwell8 & I have posted notebooks with all code for each chapter so you can reproduce everything…analysis, figures, and tables! Enjoy! #rstats #DataScience #MachineLearning >


Helena Hartmann (@helenahhartmann; 714): My own #academic website is now up and running at I used blogdown in #rstats and the academic/hugo template (12). > I would love to see your websites - comment below with the link! > @AcademicChatter @AcademicPlanet

Matt Dray (@mattdray; 143): 🔤 I updated my post about altering the #fonts in your #rstats #blogdown site. It’s now easier to follow, has better screenshots and includes more puns. 📝

kasiek (@KKulma; 81): #rstats lovely crowd: I’m setting up a #blogdown blog that locally renders without any problems but when I deploy it to I get into various problems, e.g. the site’s deemed unsafe, no pictures are published, layout skewed. etc. Any ideas how to approach it?

Bobby Neelon (@BNeelon; 50): @CMastication @RustProofLabs And you could probably do it for pennies using blogdown and AWS S3…

Martin Henze (Heads or Tails) (@heads0rtai1s; 41): @pcastr Github + #rstats #blogdown package works like a charm for me. Lots of formatting options via Hugo, easy hosting, great docs, runs reproducible #rstats code and #python (via reticulate package):

Matt Hill (@InsectEcology; 40): Started redoing my personal website, this time using blogdown and the hugo academic theme (because jekyll ain’t cool no more) >

ukituki (@ukituki; 40): @_ColinFay Learn in public: start publishing imperfect content {blogdown}, Write package automating my finance {tidyquant}, Simple on top of APIs {plumber}, Fool around with {MLflow}, kubernetes, serverless (R engine on AWS Lambda), Dockerize something cool

Joshua de la Bruere (@delaBJL; 30): @ProfNoodlearms @katemath @keithjonesman @overleaf I’m a big fan of using pagedown/blogdown in R to do some nice looking documents with markdown. I think you can even use LaTex. I think you can even use CoCalc to do that, though I’d have to check their package list.

Ahmed Hasan (@ahmedrhasan; 30): Update: here is the post, as promised! Only two weeks late but let’s not talk about that. It’s less of a tutorial and more me rambling about the process, but hopefully it’s still useful

Sbu (@Sbudation15; 20): @_ColinFay Learn how to create a site with blogdown. > Learn more about doing animation in R

Ezekiel Adebayo Ogundepo (@gbganalyst; 11): @erum2020_conf I also want to attend erum 2020 conference and network with other #rstats programmers. I have applied and hoping to be selected. > My goals for 2020 are to learn new skills in R and turn my website to #blogdown.

Richard Erickson (@raericksonWI; 92): Thanks to @old_man_chester for sharing this intro regression (but advanced stats book!) with me It’s great for anyone wanting to learn about regression in #rstats, plus it open source. Think of it as a follow up to @ModernDive

Jozef Hajnala (@jozefhajnala; 91): One of my goals for 2020 is to give back more to the #rstats community. Over the holidays, I enriched the content around Spark and compiled it into an open-source bookdown site. More details in the announcement blogpost 🔗

Matt McBee (@TunnelOfFire; 90): I just built my book (via bookdown) in a Docker container to hedge against future package / R Core updates that might break it.

Chester Ismay (@old_man_chester; 83): @rudeboybert is one of the best collaborators I could think of working with. So happy to have v1.0.0 out there through our work together. Special thanks also to @xieyihui for the {bookdown} #rstats pkg. He’s paved the way for so much great work in this space.

Ming Tang (@tangming2005; 64): very nice intro to grid thanks @ivivek87

Thea Knowles (@theaknowles; 61): Super excited and full of nostalgia to be heading back to #LdnOnt next week to lead an #RLadies workshop on #rmarkdown/#bookdown for academic writing. 👩‍💻📑🙌

Christopher Peters 🚀 (@statwonk; 30): @alexkyllo That’s right. Using a custom asymmetric loss function the avoids distortion introduced by the sampling technique.

Nathan Eastwood (@nathaneastwood_; 21): If you are interested in using #Spark in #rstats, you should check out @jozefhajnala’s new #bookdown book: Using Spark from R for performance! >

Evan Will (@EvanPeterWill; 20): @riceyriceyricey @chrisdaaz @elotroalex @DCNB @omwikle Alternative to Jekyll-based approach, I see a lot of RMarkdown/Bookdown and Jupyter Notebook on GitHub based textbooks for coding topics. Or using docs themes (designed by software folks) for OER. > e.g.

Daniel Roy Greenfeld @ Los Angeles (@pydanny; 20): @katychuang I have a love/hate relationship with LaTeX. So wonderful yet so hard to use. Tonight I’m looking at Bookdown as a possible intermediary.

Dan York (@danyork; 12): Originally I was thinking about using GitBook… but they pivoted and no longer do PDF creation. Now considering Bookdown / R Markdown ( ), but curious about other options.
> Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (Thanks in advance) 22

NelsonGon (@neuronelsongon; 11): @RoedSimon90 @rstats4ds a good place to start. is a “hidden” treasure. I used the latter more when I was beginning to learn myself. I think Prof. Matloff’s slides are great too. #rstats

Bryan Jenks (@Tall_Viking; 11): #rstats today I’m writing my first bookdown 📖 trainings manual, going to blow the team away!

Vivek Das (@ivivek87; 11): @tangming2005 I have used grid only in specific cases of arrange utilities. But may be these could give some lead. 1. > 2.

El Yanes (@elYanes; 10): Alguien en la sala que controle de Bookdown con R Markdown?

Colin Fay 🤘 (@_ColinFay; 10): @ChasingMicrobes @CMastication @iplusfour I love how {bookdown} can be used to write books about other programming languages

Dr. Sören Wilke (@SorenWilke; 10): @J_Schroeder91 The dataset comes as projected grids with EPSG:31467 (x/y/z) from @DWD_presse and was scraped via #rdwd which returns a #raster format. > In the process of wrangling I eventually transformed it into a huge data.frame and added a “year”-variable. > cf

Dr Paul Goodship (@pGoodship; 10): Great resource for @rstudio users

Daniel Roy Greenfeld @ Los Angeles (@pydanny; 10): @katychuang Oh yes, working on a python one. Bookdown is very similar to a toolset I was starting to build. 🙂

Kat Chuang (@katychuang; 10): @pydanny Hahaha the mascot for LaTeX has got to be grumpy cat. I’m designing question/solution documents so the vintage tools are the oldies but goodies. Bookdown looks pretty! Looks like a great choice for those ready to install RStudio and/or have lots of plots.

Michael DeCrescenzo (@mikedecr; 10): @andrewheiss this has been huuuuge for managing my dissertation. Every time the project knits, it checks a Box-sync’d folder of data and makes symlinks to the data files. I don’t have to commit the data but it’s still backed up in a way that works w/ a bookdown workflow 💪

Joel Gombin (@joelgombin; 10): @_ColinFay Among others, write a bookdown book with all our corporate processes. BTW, there’s a question waiting for you on Slack 😉

Mathieu Basille (@MabLabUF; 10): @wild_ecology #RMarkdown + #bookdown hosted on GitHub Pages make for beautiful reproducible results (that are also accepted by journals as stable enough to be referenced). > E.g.

yoni sidi (@yoniceedee; 6826): Update to {details} #rstats 📦 ships with its own knitr chunk engine to make usage in #rmarkdown more natural. @ma_salmon @Emil_Hvitfeldt 🔗

श्रवण वसिष्ठ / Shravan Vasishth (@shravanvasishth; 140): The worst thing about Rmd and knitr are the utterly useless error messages. I mean, why don’t they just print out, Error of the third kind, for everything that randomly goes wrong?

Tiffany Timbers (@TiffanyTimbers; 40): @apreshill @nicoleradziwill uninstall MacTeX and install tinyTeX ( was the ticket! It FINALLY knit to pdf!!!!

#Jer.29:11 (@panthers2369; 30): I’m sorry but this #Extremelove should be called Pedophilelove between the daddy dom and tinytex smfh wow I know tinytex is an adult but little person or not she looks like a damn child smh wow

Ruthie (@jonesruthie72; 30): I think #TinyTex is kinda cute #extremelove

Mr. CCP (@akabuchiyk; 20): 公開しているRStudio用Dockerがしばらくちゃんと機能していなかったので,修正しました(TinyTexが古くてPDFが出力できない,Dockerのアップができない)。確認した範囲では,正常に動作しています。

Peter Higgins (@ibddoctor; 10): @hspter Is there an R package (like tinytex for LaTeX) that installs a standard Python installation that works well with @Rstudio? It would seem like an appropriate companion to reticulate, particularly for python beginners.

Tiffany Timbers (@TiffanyTimbers; 10): @nicoleradziwill @apreshill Thanks for the suggestion of tinyTeX @nicoleradziwill !!!

Tiffany Timbers (@TiffanyTimbers; 10): @nicoleradziwill No, MacTex (I’m on OSX). tinytex eh…🤔 I’ll try it!

Dilsher Dhillon (@dhillon_stats; 10): @martinjhnhadley Esp if you’re on windows. I’ve always had problems knitting to pdf on windows until I came across tinytex package.

Robert DasRotRad (@dasrotrad; 10): @DrMowinckels I am on Windows 10. I don’t know what I did differently, but I just uninstalled, then reinstalled TinyTeX and got a document to knit! It is working!

Robert DasRotRad (@dasrotrad; 10): I’ve been in LaTex, TinyTEX, MikTeX hell for months. If you do a video presentation, live or recorded, I’d like to see how this is resolved. I get to pdf via knit to html. Thank goodness that works.


David Keyes (@dgkeyes; 281): The resources that @apreshill put out are incredible. I’ve learned about {bookdown}, {xaringan} and more from her website. >

David Keyes (@dgkeyes; 281): The series of packages that @xieyihui focused on communication are so, so good. I use {xaringan} and {bookdown} all of the time. And I’m excited to use {pagedown} more in 2020 to created paged reports. >

【𝑃𝑎𝑡𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑖𝑎 𝐿𝑜𝑡𝑜】 (@patriloto; 121): I made a new theme (perhaps I’ll call it summer , I’m not sure) to contribute to Xaringan (@xieyihui ’s package). #rstats users, what do think about it? Open a pull request or don’t: that is the question 🤔

Emilie Campos (@emjcampos; 22): Has anyone found a nice way of embedding shiny apps in xaringan slides? #rstats
