Mark Edmondson (@HoloMarkeD; 10): @ShirinGlander @rstudio Not a fix, but a workaround could be to have the original Rmd as .rmd.raw say, then render that locally to Rmd, then let blogdown serve that up.

PirateGrunt (@FanninQED; 20): @CMastication @kwbroman @bearloga I may be wrong, but I had thought the underscore issue with bookdown was confined to LaTeX and/or cross-referencing. I think the latter case is where I had trouble and began to adopt the habit of dashes instead of underscores.

Tingjie Guo (@TingjieGuo; 10): @vrognas Git should work but that’s too geek 🤓. But I like Rmarkdown, it’s modern. Checkout bookdown R package, maybe you will want to write everything with it 😁

Arielle Dror (@arielle_dror; 10): Parameterized reports ( are also really cool. You can set parameters in the YAML header to control anything, from what data is pulled to what text you want to display in different versions of a report. This makes life easier and your code more efficient.


Brendan Cullen (@_bcullen; 519105): Just learned an amazing #rstats trick: You can embed #learnr apps using knitr::include_app() for live coding demos inside #xaringan slides! 🤯 This way you don’t have to switch b/w slides and #rstudio IDE for live demos, reducing cognitive load. #rmarkdown knows no bounds! 🤩

One R Package a Day (@RLangPackage; 95): workflowr - Provides a workflow for your analysis projects by combining literate programming (‘knitr’ and ‘rmarkdown’) and version control (‘Git’, via ‘git2r’) to generate a website containing time-stamped, versioned, and documented results. #rstats

Nick Criswell (@nrcriswell; 20): @GoldbergData We’ve had success embedding shiny apps (and knitr docs!) hosted with RSConnect into dashboard pages in Tableau. Then you can have the best of both worlds.

Mikhail Popov (@bearloga; 12): @ellamkaye @thomas_mock That’s so weird! It works for me; I wonder what’s going on > Are you using latest versions {knitr} & {rmarkdown}? Do you work in RStudio IDE? (I recommend updating that to latest if you haven’t yet.) Do you use {tinytex} ( to install the LaTeX distribution?

Calum Polwart (@ShinyBlackShoe; 10): @DM_Zadeh @Pharmacistdaz Are you wanting a “pretty” table (knitr in rmarkdown) or export to CSV or excel > Can also markdown to word direct…

Jeff Walker (@jwalkrunski; 10): @mtanichthys @JennyBryan this includes reading/writing image files for example this code

image_path <- here("images/transport/simple_diffusion.jpg")

The directory “images” needs to be at the root level of the R Studio Project (where it should be!)


Peter Higgins (@ibddoctor; 10): @chendaniely @TiffanyTimbers @dcossyle Would love to see a package that does for python/reticulate what {tinytex} does for LaTeX - a no fuss noob-level installer of a minimal working version of python (miniconda-ish).


Garrick Aden-Buie (@grrrck; 20544): Have you ever wanted to use R’s colors in your {xaringan} slides or other R Markdown HTML docs? (Yes, this tweet is for a very niche #rstats audience.) > If you said YES! then I’ve put together some CSS files just for you

Omar Wasow (@owasow; 40): @JaeJaeykim2 Am trying to transition from Latex to Rmarkdown+Latex. For slides, Xaringan’s native HTML has been a huge improvement over Beamer (eg, remote teaching). For papers, only big advantage has been ability to export to Word for one co-author. Stuck with Latex for book project.

Daniel Nüst (@nordholmen; 30): @StephenEglen @geospacedman @lgatt0 @wolfgangkhuber @albertcardona I took a quick look around and learned about the countdown feature by @lopp_sean - apparently part of Xaringan since 2017! It shows a timer for each slide. The PR should be a good starting point to implement this, including a small rewrite by @xieyihui >

Beatriz Milz (@BeaMilz; 10): Usei várias dicas feitas sobre como compartilhar as apresentações feitas no xaringan pelo @grrrck neste post:

Andrew Farina (@AndrewFarina01; 10): This xaringan theme looks great! I’ve been hesitant to dig too deep into css…then I see this…time to learn more than just the basic css manipulations!

Tim Tiefenbach (@TimTeaFan; 10): @bmwiernik @rstats4ds And then there is {flipbookr} to produce {xaringan} slides which reveal every pipe step and output. It’s ideal for teaching.
