A/Prof Jenny Richmond (@JenRichmondPhD; 111): The magic Deploy to Netlify button 🤯🤯🤯, if you want to try blogdown (which is mostly not a tool to be used at short notice) use this magic button to borrow @apreshill ’s site and make it your own #rstats

Meghan Hall (@MeghanMHall; 91): Well, @apreshill and @dcossyle made me want to write a book using bookdown (should I have an idea first? eh). Their webinar was of course great, the slides are here, and I can add an enthusiastic thumbs up for using blogdown for your website!

Ted Laderas (@tladeras; 70): @gvwilson @RStudioEDU @andrewheiss @Miles_Ott for being a helpful sounding board. @apreshill for being generally awesome with all her resources on Xaringan and Blogdown. @bethduckles for being awesome as well. > I love you #rstats twitter.

Jenine K Harris (@jenineharris; 63): Ok…once more with better spelling…@RLadiesSTL workshop on making personal and professional websites with blogdown is coming up in 4 days! 🥳Looking forward to putting on my fanciest sweatpants and learning 🤓something new from Dr. @Dorris_Scott 🤩

Danielle Navarro (@djnavarro; 61): Finally, one of the biggest advantages to using blogdown is that is that can use R code in your writing. The last video in this section is me talking (for far too long) about how to embed chunks of R code in the blog >

Melissa Gordon Wolf (@MelissaGWolf; 60): Just spent two hours frantically debugging my blogdown website and totally forgot COVID existed. I can’t focus on R errors and real world errors at the same time, and it’s so jarring to realize that my all-consuming R errors are not quite as bad as the real world ones.

Gina Reynolds (@EvaMaeRey; 30): This seems helpful…

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 20): @apreshill @RStudioEDU It turns out I’m going down the mountain. 😀 I was way up at #blogdown and somehow overlooked the very approachable #rmarkdown websites!

Will Wheeler (@willwheels; 20): I probably should have been more specific. Great advice about how to move Rmarkdown to the web, and I really liked the progression of difficulty (one page, to Distill, to blogdown and bookdown). > p.s. Distill > blogdown

Susannah Cowtan (she/her) (@SuusJC; 10): @djnavarro I need to re-di my blogdown site because I broke it, so I’ll test it too

Abdul Majed (@1littlecoder; 10): @abhicantdraw @BibliophilesBlr In fact, for this one it’s based on an R package called blogdown that helps me write posts on md or R md from Rstudio and rest is taken care.

Jenine K Harris (@jenineharris; 10): @Dorris_Scott I spelled blogdown wrong, LOL (Twitter tried to autocorrect me again just now!) :-)

Ramses Rudolph (@PracticalStoic; 10): @dsquintana @fibrou @robinson_es Did you end up writing the blog post? This thread is super useful, as is the blogdown book. But if you have anything additional resources, that would be awesome.

Mayank Prakash (@Mayank17021980; 10): Nice thoughts shared by ekak innovations over how 3D additive manufacturing is helping at these times of lockdown and supply disruptions ..

Shazia Ruybal Pesántez (@DrShaziaRuybal; 10): @firefoxx66 I love #blogdown and you can do it all in R!

Alison Presmanes Hill (@apreshill; 10): @ibddoctor @EvaMaeRey @dcossyle Not sure if an iframe is necessary since it is a gif file- I would bet the issue with blogdown here is file paths. But I could be wrong ;)

Richard Meyer-Eppler (@r_meyereppler; 30): @ludmila_janda No tried-and-true solution but some tips: use devEMF as graphic device (dev=“emf”, fig.ext=“emf”); set page size and margins for reference.docx; ensure figures are scaled to 100% in Word; make comparisons using theme(base_size); out.width and height work for docx in latest knitr.

Gina Reynolds (@EvaMaeRey; 30): But might be coming back to how it gets embedded … “tighter integration between knitr and gganimate should be coming soon”

Gabe The Engineer (@gdbassett; 20): @gabsmashh What do you mean ggplot2 uses mm to size aesthetics, pixels to size themes, and then knitr uses inches to size the figure? How am I supposed to keep all that shit straight over 100 data visualizations?!

Alex Norman (@Aarleks; 11): @alpapan Pandoc is especially good for markdown to pdf via LaTex. It’s also what RMarkdown calls via knitr. Pandoc ships with a stock LaTex template that works well enough.

fdetsch (@fdetsch; 0/1): #rstats #rstudio people, is it possible to to keep blank lines in code when weaving Rnw files with Sweave? The only solution I can think of is weaving with knitr instead 🤔

Shawn Graham (@electricarchaeo; 30): trying to set up tinytex for latex with R on this new machine and…

Jan Berz (@Jan_Berz; 10): @PoliSciJack I didn’t know about TinyTex looks nice.

Jack Bailey (@PoliSciJack; 10): @Jan_Berz Oh, sweet. I don’t at the moment, but I’m tempted just to rely on the TinyTex R package if I can.

Alessandro Gasparini (@ellessenne; 10): @wbrentthorne @gr_papageorgiou @graemeleehickey I need to seriously have a look into that! However this was a plain LaTeX project, but my understanding is that tinytex is a standalone TeX distribution too?

Greg Papageorgiou (@gr_papageorgiou; 10): @ellessenne @graemeleehickey Not sure if that helps, but if you use Rstudio to write latex, package tinytex helps as lot in installing all missing packages during compilation of Rmd files

CRAN Package Updates (@CRANberriesFeed; 0/1): CRAN updates: tinytex xaringan #rstats


Gavin Fay (@gavin_fay; 6410): Made my first (basic) #xaringan #rstats presentation today. For those wanting to learn, I highly recommend these brilliant resources from @apreshill:

Tim Feeney (@Tfeend; 62): This is an amazing tutorial for getting started making presentations with xaringan.

Alison Presmanes Hill (@apreshill; 50): @Tfeend here was the #rstudioconf version from 2019! >

Elena Dudukina (@evpatora; 42): Using new tools 🛠 For this presentation I used #rstats xaringan. I can’t say I spent little time preparing slides, but I was happy with the final result and not copy pasting ☠️ from the descriptive table, but instead using dplyr and %>% to show and highlight the relevant info 👌

Elena Dudukina (@evpatora; 31): Just in case and for fun, I converted my xaringan to .pdf with pagedown::chrome_print() making sure I have all the fonts I used from xaringanthemer locally installed. #rstats #phdchat

Paul Julian PhD (@SwampThingPaul; 21): Just started using the xaringan #rstats package/template and I’m completely blown away. If your on the fence about building presentations in R try xaringan. There is a slight learning curve but it’s worth it!!

Julian Burgos (@J_M_Burgos; 20): @gavin_fay @apreshill Nice Gavin! I have been using Xaringan for a while. It is great.

Alison Presmanes Hill (@apreshill; 20): @tladeras > bc I can never remember :)

Meghan Hall (@MeghanMHall; 20): Thank you to @apreshill, who was very gracious and helpful last night when I slid into her DMs and begged for advice on why my plots in xaringan weren’t rendering in blogdown 💞

Ted Laderas (@tladeras; 10): I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I didn’t know how presenter mode works in xaringan. > FYI: > 1) Set up your projector/laptop to be dual screens > 2) Open your slides from your website in a web browser

Phil Chodrow (@PhilChodrow; 10): Hey @djnavarro! The gorgeous slides on your “Robust Tools” website single-handedly motivated me to learn @xieyihui’s xaringan package for #rstats. I’m about to speak at a conference with the most beautiful slides I’ve ever made, using light modifications of your css. Thank you!!

Matthew Hendrickson (@mjhendrickson; 10): @statsgen @rstatstweet While I think xaringan looks amazing, I had something come up and don’t have the time to get the presentation converted. But I’m still keeping an eye on this for the future. Thanks again!
