Arjan Boltjes (@arjanboltjes; 12): In some posts on my personal #blogdown-based website, code chunks contain a neat ‘copy button’ on the right-hand side (see pic), while in other posts this is not the case.

Vivek Das (@ivivek87; 10): @srigsri23 @tangming2005 That’s a valid one but blogdown/bookdown based ones are catching up a lot lately. Kind of interesting. Although, I am still not totally sold into it. And anyways, CV using R is still dynamic as the person making it can change it anytime & publish. 🤣😬
