Frau Frohmann (@FrauFrohmann; 385): Woran ich gerade sitze. Wie passend.

Und Amsel! > #blogdown

Olivier Gimenez 🖖 (@oaggimenez; 91): Following Stéphane, I introduced #RMarkdown to write reproducible documents (reports, articles, slides, CV, dashboards, books, package vignettes, etc) and did a live demo of how to build and deploy a website w/ blogdown & netlify.

Monica Thieu (@monicatoo; 41): @neubadah love seeing what other folks do with their websites! I finally moved mine to blogdown earlier this year to do #rstats blog posts (plus quit paying for squarespace which was nice! but overkill for my needs)

Christophe Dervieux (@chrisderv; 30): @_ColinFay @datavizvg There is a new blogdown version coming, and not a small one ! If you want to try the dev version, we welcome some feedback before the release !

Houston H Haynes (@h3techdev; 30): @nathangs20 @andrew_cb2 @AlbersonMiranda 😉 Just published this yesterday. Nibbling around the edges in splitting between @code and @rstudio but may go all code in R. Their notebooks feature is a draw but my personal blogdown site is this weekend’s project.

flotsam (@researchremora; 30): @tylermorganwall I’ve decided I’m going to write it first and figure out {blogdown} later. Otherwise I’d be consumed with making sure everything looks right and I’d never write anything substantive down. 😋

Dominik Meier (@Dominikmeie_r; 30): @jakepscott2020 @toeb18 I found this tutorial from @apreshill to be very helpful:

Andrew Heiss (@andrewheiss; 30): @DavidPoe223 Blogdown + Hugo Academic! (see the source at github:

Ted Laderas, PhD 🏳️‍🌈 (@tladeras; 20): @iamericfletcher @pdxrlang It is just sophisticated enough and it doesn’t take as much mental real estate to manage all the files, compared to {blogdown}.

Daniel Braby (@dbrby; 20): @frasmcm @dsquintana I had used blogger in the past, bit meh. Made the switch to Hugo following @dsquintana’s Youtube video for Rstudio and blogdown: > The tutorial in the post above took <1 hour

Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 20): @toeb18 @thomas_neitmann I haven’t used the drag & drop option, but I think you can drag & drop your “public” folder into Netlify again and the new files will replace the old ones for a new build. > You might find the blogdown section of this webinar helpful (▶️ at 34:12):

Houston H Haynes (@h3techdev; 10): @nathangs20 @AlbersonMiranda And I realize this is marginally unhelpful - I nearly always use RStudio for R coding. I only step out to VSCode when working with blogdown for non-R housekeeping. So, apologies for not being a specific help.

Erich Neuwirth (@neuwirthe; 10): @R_K_OE Das ist nicht Matlab, das ist R+Rstudio mit einigen Erweiterungspaketen, insbesodere tidyverse und blogdown + rsync. ;-)

Liliane Conteville (@ContevilleL; 10): @iferres91 Yes, I think creating a Github page is a good idea. Blogdown seems interesting, I’m gonna look deeper into this. Thanks!

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 10): @RyanStraight I just pushed a possible fix to this problem. You may try remotes::install_github(‘rstudio/blogdown’) and let me know if it works. Thanks! BTW, in the future, please feel free to file an issue to if you run into problems like this.

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 10): @dbrby @dsquintana May I ask what your routine issues were? Thanks! And FYI, blogdown v0.21 and 0.22 (unreleased) have a lot of updates, and some of your issues might have been resolved:

John (JP) Coene (@jdatap; 90): Thanks to those whose work got me interested in JavaScript and ultimately inspired me to write the book: @timelyportfolio, @cpsievert , and @ramnath_vaidya. Also thanks to @xieyihui’s {bookdown} which makes writing such a book a breeze.

TAKEbayesHI (@psycle44; 20): @Shuntarooo3 サイト構築、スライド、全てRmarkdownでサクッとです。サイトはbookdownというRの本を書くテンプレートがあるのでそれを使うとできちゃいます。スライドは僕も国里さんもxaringanを使ってます♪

Jannik (@jannikbuhr; 20): @JennyBryan When I discover a new framework like bookdown, I usually start customizing it. Then I customize some more. Then I think: “what have I done?!”, go back to the defaults and leave the design to others…

I love, love, love the signposting 🪧 with traveling 🧳through the tidyverse ✨ and the slides with multiple tabs to contain related content and exercises.

Iza’s Worst side (@Evil_Iza; 20): O fato de que o pacote de fazer slides no R chama “Xaringan: The presentation ninja” é maravilhoso

Olivier Gimenez 🖖 (@oaggimenez; 20): @HugSalmon 🙏😊😇 If you know #RMarkdown, then writing slides w/ #xaringan feels natural 😉 Check out @xieyihui presentation What actually takes time, at least to me, is conceptualizing and organising the slides, like in a storyboard, and I use pen & paper for that.

Alison Presmanes Hill (@apreshill; 10): @spcanelon @llbaker1707 @NHSrCommunity You made a TON of content upgrades and put your own stamp on it- I’m so happy to see others teaching xaringan 🥳

Bruce Ives (@bruceives; 10): @NHSrCommunity @ManziSean @trianglegirl @spcanelon Is the xaringan slides workshop going ahead still? I had two emails that looked like cancellations?

Toryn Schafer (@toryn_schafer; 10): @AlwaysScientist Woohoo!! Are you defending on Zoom? I definitely had a “script” in my presenter slide notes since I knew I’d be staring at the screen and people would most likely be staring at the slides anyway. I also used the xaringan slides for the first time in Rmarkdown and really liked it.

HugSalmon (@HugSalmon; 10): @JFattaccioli sans la transparence… > Il est possible d’écrire en md des livres, des articles et même … des présentations (cf. le package Xaringan). Ce qui est sympa avec Markdown c’est la rapidité à pouvoir publier et le minimalisme du code
