Emerson Del Ponte (@edelponte; 254): Working today on the migration of all @OpenPlantPath posts from current (blogdown) to new #distill (searchable!) website. Yes, fun work! So good to re-read excellent materials we’ve posted during these 3 years. Stay tuned. New website with great news will be up soon!

Aurélien Goutsmedt (@AGoutsmedt; 195): After 3 days of work, I’m happy to share my new personal website: I used #rstats blogdown for that. Thanks to @xieyihui @ProQuesAsker and @apreshill for their great documentation ( and blog posts on the topic!

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 174): Started looking at #distill today as I start thinking about what #rstats topics to work on with grad students spring term. Lots of potential based on the simplicity compared to my old friend #blogdown for a basic website for applied scientists!

Maria Kamenetsky (@mkamenets; 72): Check out February’s Boston useR virtual meetup @_RachaelDempsey featuring Freddy Drennan (ndexr: democratizing data), @cristalrivera44 (using hugo, blogdown, distill), and me (learnr for self-assessment).

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 60): @CMastication Actually you are strongly recommended to be stuck on a fixed working Hugo version (blogdown::check_site() will tell you how). It’s good practice in this case. No need to feel bad about it. If you have technical trouble with posting new articles, we’d be happy to help!

Bryan Jenks 🌱️ (@tallguyjenks; 50): @RussellBuchan @AcademicChatter Blogdown with R so all you need to know is RMarkdown for a website? it was a pretty friendly way of using completely free options like github pages, netlifly, and Rmarkdown to make an awesome site, +Hugo academic theme :)

Garrick Aden-Buie (@grrrck; 40): @lisalendway @tladeras @aosmith16 I think distill comes with great metadata tags, if you use that! metathis is good for plain Rmd or presentations or shiny apps. Sadly it doesn’t generally work in blogdown but it can maybe help you figure out the tags to use in the template

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 40): @CMastication I have one site where it doesn’t seem worth my time to upgrade to current versions of Hugo so I use the blogdown.hugo.dir option in my .Rprofile to keep using an older one. Seems to work so far!

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 40): @RCoderWeb @delaBJL Before that, my advice is to pin both the Hugo version (run blogdown::check_site()) and the theme. When you have a working combination, don’t upgrade. Our tears on the academic theme are probably no less than yours, so we are highly motivated to develop our own themes.

R CODER (@RCoderWeb; 40): A month ago I created some slides for teaching #blogdown to academics, so I used the wowchemy theme for the first part of the course. I’ve downloaded the theme again and it throws errors when serving the site and it is completely different internally. Osom. (12)

Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 40): @Sumidu @ClausWilke Ooh you might like {xaringanBuilder} from @JohnHelveston! I just learned about it and it helps export #xaringan to PPTX

Dr. John Paul Helveston (@JohnHelveston; 30): @spcanelon @bhive01 @kierisi @grrrck Thanks @spcanelon! For now xaringanBuilder can make a pptx where each slide contains an image of each xaringan slide. So you can’t edit the xaringan content in the pptx, but you can annotate the slides.

Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 30): @bhive01 @kierisi @grrrck In that case you may like {xaringanBuilder}! I haven’t tried it myself but it looks like it helps export #xaringan to PPTX

Claus Wilke (@ClausWilke; 21): @Sumidu Xaringan is great if you want to include code. For presentations without code, I’d still prefer Powerpoint or Keynote.
