Caitlin Casar (@DeepSubsurfer; 263): @bonniecelt @AcademicChatter Github pages + the Hugo static site generator with blogdown, I wrote a tutorial on it here: https://t.co/izc36nl4AD

Delaney Glass (@GlassDelaney; 172): Had fun co-hosting a workshop this morning on how to create a professional website using #R #Rstudio and #blogdown with @benmarwick! We gleaned inspiration (and code!) from @apreshill & @dsquintana #Anthro #sciencetwitter #AcademicTwitter #datatools

Emily Robinson (@robinson_es; 113): @skyetetra @siawayforward Or if you want to go the easy way and you use R I recommend blogdown. There’s a million tutorials; I like @zabormetrics’s one https://t.co/sbHN8JJXeA

Robert M. McDonnell (@RobertMylesMc; 101): @MilesMcBain I use Gatsby myself, but it’s a lot more involved than using blogdown. I wanted to build a site and improve my JS, so for me it was win-win. (https://t.co/OsbPubkeLv for code)

Tim Feeney (@Tfeend; 80): @ProfMattFox @EpiEllie I set up a webpage. Mostly as a way to play with R and blogdown, but also to have a landing page. I have only been contacted once, but it by someone who found a thumb drive I dropped in an airport! I got it back and thus the web presence has already paid off.

Silvia P. Canelón (@spcanelon; 40): @Amit_Levinson @MichaelDorman84 @toeb18 I second this 👆🏽 {Blogdown} makes it easy to launch and maintain a website. The book is great (https://t.co/aCEY0Tw7W5) but let me know if I can point you to any tutorials!

Amit Levinson (@Amit_Levinson; 40): @MichaelDorman84 @toeb18 Agree! Hugo was (and is) a great starting point for me. The blogdown package makes it really easy to work with it so I definitely recommend this approach.

Alberto Acerbi (@acerbialberto; 30): @CostelloWilliam RStudio + Blogdown + Hugo Academic theme (possibly hosting everything for free at GitHub). If you have time, it is a good investment!

Ujjwal Panda 🐼 (@maddestpanda; 30): @bonniecelt @AcademicChatter RStudio with Blogdown. @dsquintana has a tutorial on how to do it. Plus points: it is free, easy and highly customisable. I made my own site this way: https://t.co/lTO7G99XR4.

Alexander Kirchner-Häusler (@KirchnerHausler; 30): @bonniecelt @AcademicChatter Can recommend Hugo + Github + Netlify + R Studio Blogdown. Open source, tons of themes, free to host, integrated with rmarkdown, and the domain is only 7.99 a year for the first year. It is a bit more effort to learn and setup though.

Andrew Bates (@asbates_; 20): @robinson_es @skyetetra @siawayforward @zabormetrics +1 for blogdown if you’re an R user

David Neuzerling (@mdneuzerling; 20): @grrrck @dsquintana That would be great! One of the things I like about blogdown and friends is that my little insignificant corner of internet can be free of advertisements and tracking.

Houston #DefundThePolice #BlackLivesMatter Haynes (@whiskersedge; 11): @Rachel_K_Meade @rstatstweet @PixSciCo 💯 agree! Even though not a grad student #rstats revived my interest in learning programming languages. Ironically, blogdown led me to learn about Golang (@GoHugoIO integration) and recently I’ve taken up @fsharporg which has a wide swath of R interops. Life’s grand pageant! 🤓

Antonio Sabogal (@AntonioSabogal; 10): @ZulmaCucunuba El camino es usar blogdown. Para usuarios de R es una forma simple de montar un sitio web y alimentarlo con contenido o posts a base de R. Es El estado del arte (en R) para hacer sitios web.

levene bartlett (@levene_bartlett; 10): @icymi_r @samiasab90 Now I’m thinking to change blogdown template

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 10): @BenHanowell I’ve heard of this method, but never thought about how to do it with tools in the R Markdown ecosystem (I’m not aware of anyone, either). It feels like blogdown + tags in posts might get you close.

Tyler Smith (@sedgeboy; 10): @andrew_leach @MilesMcBain You can get up and running with https://t.co/k3mY3nQ7Xe, which includes a very quick “quick example” that will get you going. It doesn’t cover citations, but it’s not too much work beyond the initial setup. I’ll try to write up my notes before I forget what I’ve done

You guy can also check out https://t.co/LQXm2bnSyT too for easy online publishing if you want to make your thesis available online.

Garrick (@grrrck; 20): @dsquintana @mccarthymg Are you previewing the HTML in RStudio? The viewer will block the external twitter JavaScript, so the tweet won’t render. If you open the html version in a browser it should work (and if it doesn’t I’ll investigate, I don’t think I tested in bookdown)

Koen Hufkens, PhD (@koen_hufkens; 11): @KRNaturalPhoto Would take a long hard look at #rstats bookdown for this one. Been doing the same for a side project.

Nathalie Lehmann (@NathalieLehman3; 10): @pierrepo And what about IDE’s or keeping track of your research (notes / papers read / project management ) ? Here’s some of mines: 1- Version control : git / github 2- IDE (for R): Nvim-R + tmux (for Python I use Spyder or just vim but not so convinced) 3- Notebooks: bookdown templates

Daniël Lakens (@lakens; 10): @sTeamTraen @chrisharms @colesnicholas @the100ci @StuartJRitchie One way it to add a blog post to the internet archive (a version control mechanism). Another would by to make a bookdown blog, and push version controlled changed (if I ever move my blog, that is what I would do)

hobart mariner (@hobartmariner; 10): @fuailalainn are you using bookdown? it looks really nice, way easier than actual latex

Irene Crisologo (@irenecrisologo; 10): @dakshitha12 Thank you! :) A common thing people say on advantages of rmarkdown is combining code and text into a single document. However, I’ve only used it to generate this bookdown version, so I can’t really speak much for rmarkdown. This might be more informative: https://t.co/JbqeZAOoKV

Sean Grogan (@SeanGrogan; 10): @irenecrisologo @numpy_team @SciPyTip @matplotlib @sciencechatph This is great! I had no idea this tool was a thing. According to my brief look at Bookdown, it seems to say that I can “[download] Multiple choices of output formats: PDF, LaTeX, HTML, EPUB, and Word”. How would I grab your (any) thesis as an epub?

Eduardo Castro (@lalopangue; 33): Hey @xieyihui how do you do to avoid foreign characters in #knitr html files? I’m writing a workshop in Spanish and the resulting HTML files contain accent marks that internet browsers can’t work with. E.g., introducción-a-phyloseq.html won’t work. #rstats #knitr #rmarkdown

Jeremy Gresham (@greshjs; 30): @sophiemmkay @0x0ddc0ffee @upulie I work with both. I end up doing a lot of line-by-line preprocessing/cleaning with python and importing the results into an Rnw, using knitr to make latex/beamer slides

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 30): @ma_salmon @dr_keithmcnulty Just to clarify, RWordPress was not created by me or Duncan Murdoch, but Duncan Temple Lang instead. And yes, the big problem is that it doesn’t seem to be maintained any more. Coincidently, someone recently also brought up knit2wp(): https://t.co/iVul8ptBBO

Gianluca Baio (@gianlubaio; 11): @amancayork I think if you’re outputting to LaTeX (or html, to be fair), knitr::kable and KableExtra are very good. Sometimes I work in pure Rmd — but I often find even more efficient to write the R chunks directly into LaTeX (with Rnw format)

Michael McCarthy (@mccarthymg; 10): @dsquintana I just came across this (haven’t tried it yet).
