Very excited to announce a brand-new feature in {xaringanExtra}: you can now draw on your {xaringan} #rstats slides with *scribble*! 👩‍🎨 🙏 Big thanks to @mattwrkntn for the contribution! ✏️



jo-sigh-ughhh (@JosiahParry; 33225): The most wonderful #rstats package I’ve ever made for myself.

Daniel Sjoberg (@statistishdan; 22225): Woah! 10K+ installs of gtsummary last month! 🤯🤯 > #rstats

Indrajeet Patil (@patilindrajeets; 21443): Another reason why I ❤️ writing in #rmarkdown: If you install a few additional packages, you can choose from a huge collection of ready-made templates! 👏 > Doesn’t matter if you are writing a journal article, CV, handout, etc. > One authoring framework to cover it all 💪 > #rstats

Sharla Gelfand (@sharlagelfand; 18230): new #rstats blog post! exploring how i style a shiny app to give it some ✨personality✨, using the infamous @bigbudpress brand as inspiration 🌞🌈 > ✍️ post: 📊 app: 💻 code:


We are R-Ladies (@WeAreRLadies; 7611): Personally, my daily work (slides, website,reports) would not be the same without @apreshill tutorials/talks/material. She has this ability to make all knowledge digestible. Thanks Allison! One of my favorites of her:

Dr. John Paul Helveston (@JohnHelveston; 364): After trying #blogdown for a few weeks, I finally decided to try out #distill, and it is simply wonderful. Exactly the compromise I was looking for between simplicity, functionality, and ability to customize. >

Jasper Tjaden (@JasperTjaden; 340): Started my new job @unipotsdam two months ago. It is not real until it has a website, right? So here it is, built with #blogdown @rstatstweet: Over time, I will make teaching materials and publications available there.

We are R-Ladies (@WeAreRLadies; 3013): We talked before about built-in output formats in #rmarkdown but what about extensions or diff. templates?!! I ❤ {xaringan}, {bookdown} and {blogdown}. But I also (want to) use other pkgs that are less mentioned. C’mon guys, I know you can add more here! 1/n

Kyle Cuilla (@kc_analytics; 264): I decided to move my personal site from #blogdown to #distill! > For any #rstats user looking to build their own site, I highly recommend using distill. In my experience, it was much easier to set up from scratch compared to blogdown. >

Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 133): Amazing! This is another beautiful example of the new #HugoApero theme for #blogdown developed by @apreshill 🌟 > The way @KellyBodwin organized content (e.g. Research Projects, Course Materials, Blog) is great and a perfect example to learn from when I make the switch 🤩 > #rstats

Demetri (@PhDemetri; 130): Can anyone recommend a tutorial on making a blog with blogdown? Maybe the book is sufficient.

Ijeamaka A (@ijeamaka_a; 121): @PhDemetri

Martín Sielfeld (@MartinSielfeld; 70): Tan bonito es #R que puedes hacer un currículum, blog o cosas similares en formato web con el paquete blogdown. Entretenciones de fin de semana

Elio Campitelli (@d_olivaw; 53): I’m playing Dragon Age: Inquisition and now every time I use blogdown::serve_site I think > “Blogdown exists to serve man never rule over him” > (image: > #Rstats

Christophe Dervieux (@chrisderv; 40): @patilindrajeets @EmilyRiederer @apreshill We are also creating pkgdown websites sharing a common layout and organization. All of them will have an examples page showcasing examples in the community. Like > > Another way to find great ideas we think.

Mikhail Popov (@bearloga; 40): @PhDemetri Are you sure you wouldn’t want to make a distill blog instead? (I use blogdown and found it difficult to set up and get exactly how I wanted it to be)

Dan Quintana (@dsquintana; 30): @bmwiernik @PhDemetri The latest version of my academic website creation walkthrough is via Visual Studio Code. Very similar to the blogdown approach with easy import of publications via .bib file

Alastair Rushworth (@rushworth_a; 21): Ok if you had to embed an #rstats widget (DT, htmlwidgets) in Wordpress page, how would you do it? Please don’t say use blogdown 😉

Christophe Dervieux (@chrisderv; 20): @patilindrajeets @EmilyRiederer @apreshill Yes like that. I think it would need a different organization than the ggplot extension because all extension package are not for rmarkdown package directly. Some are for blogdown, or bookdown, or pagedown. So an organization showing of that granularity would be interesting IMO.

Indrajeet Patil (@patilindrajeets; 20): @chrisderv @EmilyRiederer @apreshill So, this extension gallery would feature packages like: pagedown, vitae, tufte, thesisdown, pkgdown, posterdown, blogdown, officedown, etc. > Along with example outputs, again similar to the ggplot2-extension website:

Ijeamaka A (@ijeamaka_a; 20): @bearloga @PhDemetri Also agree that distill is where it’s at and blogdown is… a process. But I know the RStudio team is doing a lot of work to make the blogdown process and dealing with Hugo a little less difficult.

Nima Farchadi (@nimafarchadi; 20): @AnnabelGong @DarbiBerry You can make it more of a challenge and use rmarkdown. You can select different themes (Hugo academic is a popular) and have it public through GitHub. There are a bunch of tutorials online including:

Emmanuel Teitelbaum (@eteitelbaum; 10): This week I did a “how to” session with some GW poli sci grad students on setting up a Hugo Academic website with the blogdown package in R. Everyone was able to get a basic site up and running within an hour! >

Serena DeStefani (@_DeStefani; 34): Today I stumbled upon this excellent book/course on data science in r for psychologists by @hneth at @UniKonstanz #rstats

Christophe Dervieux (@chrisderv; 32): @peterlovesdata @rstudio This is one of the interesting how-to you can find documented in R Markdown Cookbook:

Will Landau (@wmlandau; 30): @JosiahParry For GitHub Actions, you can commit an {renv} lockfile instead of a package DESCRIPTION file to declare the dependency packages of the workflow. Example: For you, maybe change the “Build site” step to call test_file() (as @mickaelcanouil mentioned).

Al Delmo (@Alvaro_Delmo; 30): @elle_bethune R and Rstudio if you’re interested in programming and stats. Others will probably recommend python for bioinformatics. Both are very similar but Rstudio is probably easier for beginners; and once you learn the basics, it’s not hard to jump between both. >

Michael Barrowman (@MyKo101AB; 20): @WeAreRLadies Then in early 2020, I decided to try and write my lecture notes in RMarkdown. It was a complete game changer. I then transferred my Thesis draft(s) from a bunch Word/Google docs to a single bookdown. It was challenging, but it worked.

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 20): @lisalendway Hmm, you’re right, I don’t see the option. I followed distill_article() to html_document_base() and df_print isn’t listed. > But maybe you could wrap the code in the chunk with rmarkdown::paged_table()? I’ve never tried it but appears is basis of “paged”:

Vebash (@Sciencificity; 20): @WeAreRLadies @cvans As learnt from @xieyihui it works with any html output. “enables you to live preview the output as soon as you save the source document” 💯 🤩

JeMScu / Lukas (@Jemus42; 20): @hadleywickham Feeling really conflicted about the trend of appending “2” to the name of a function to make it the subjectively better version of that function 😕 See also: pdf_document2() et. al. in bookdown. I’d wager most people™ would want to use the unhelpfully named version.

Ryan Estrellado (@RyanEs; 20): @ivelasq3 This is really awesome @ivelasq3! The DSIEUR bookdown whisperer has spoken

Simon Columbus (@simoncolumbus; 20): @bruno_nicenboim @dingding_peng Sounds like I should give bookdown a try. I’ve used xaringan in the past and my experience was… well, see above.

Bruno Nicenboim (@bruno_nicenboim; 20): @simoncolumbus @dingding_peng I only use the ones that convert the rmd to a tex file, so whenever I’m in need of latex, I can still use it. Also I’m generally using bookdown’s rmarkdown which is more powerful and handles better captions, and references

Joyce Robbins (@jtrnyc; 10): @yoniceedee @dpprdan Thanks! I’m actually working on adding to the DESCRIPTION file of a #bookdown proj so need to search .Rmds… will update_desc() do that or only .R files?

Joyce Robbins (@jtrnyc; 10): @ijlyttle The pkg looks great! Does proj_update_deps() just search .R files? I’m actually working on a #bookdown proj so I need to search .Rmds.

Joyce Robbins (@jtrnyc; 10): @dpprdan @yoniceedee Good point. I’m actually working on a #bookdown project so I have library calls in mind but I shouldn’t have worded it that way.

Meghan Harris (@meghansharris; 10): @dr_mpolya Thank you! Yes of course! I’m going to write a blog post in the future, but there’s a function in knitr, combine_words() that does this -> > A limitation is that the words need to be separate elements.

Christopher Peters 😷 (@statwonk; 10): @hoopsterbobby Sure! Check out this one, > I highly recommend the Statistical Rethinking book.

Jennifer K. Houchins (@TooSweetGeek; 10): @cvans @rstats4ds According to Bookdown’s documentation site, you can use to produce e-books (epub & Kindle), PDF, and HTML. So publishing to your personal website should be no problem. I’ve had no issues adding R markdown produced html to my own personal website. 🙌 >

Beatriz Milz (@BeaMilz; 70): @ericbrasiln Oi Eric, eu uso apresentações com xaringan desde 2018 e eu gosto muito. Esse material pode ser útil também

We are R-Ladies (@WeAreRLadies; 70): I also use Ioslides sometimes. If I want a truly pretty and customized presentation, I always use {xaringan} but sometimes I just want to display results for myself or for colleagues and ioslides are perfect for that. What other #rmarkdown built-in outputs do you use?

We are R-Ladies (@WeAreRLadies; 50): @apreshill If you also use {xaringan} regularly, I think it is a good to check the remark wiki page at least once. It is what powers {xaringan} and it is therefore very interesting to understand

Jennifer K. Houchins (@TooSweetGeek; 44): I just had tons of fun doing this sentiment analysis assignment in R and putting together a #xaringan presentation in R markdown for @sbkellogg’s class. #RStats #DataScience > Spoiler: There’s a yolo cat… >

Dr. Ajay Koli (@koliajaykr; 40): dear @grrrck your today’s talk and q & a session was just awesome. I really learned more to improve my {xaringan} slides. thank you @jaredlander for being such a cool host. I’m looking forward to future events of @nyhackr

Ariel Muldoon (@aosmith16; 32): I’m last-minute designing an informal #rstats course for spring term on “topics” (distill, gt, writing functions, etc.) > I usually teach R via interactive coding, but remote learning means maybe dipping my toe into xaringan slides. Very inspired by xaringanExtra @grrrck!

Dr Gavin Simpson 😷🇪🇺 (@ucfagls; 30): @rushworth_a I’ve found HTML slides via Xaringan to be mostly pain free once I figured out an aspect ratio (for fig.height/width) and a base font size (ggplot), then I let the layout in remarks/CSS/HTML do the rest. Render to SVG. Set these defaults globally for all slides

Claus Wilke (@ClausWilke; 30): @jaredlander Hey, just watched the xaringan presentation by @grrrck and saw your plea for self-contained xaringan slides. How do you make them? Is there a quick tutorial somewhere?

Asmae Toumi (@asmae_toumi; 30): omg with minimal css look how much customization you can make to your xaringan slides im cryinnnnngggggggg

Dr. John Paul Helveston (@JohnHelveston; 30): @PipingHotData @WeAreRLadies @EvaMaeRey @spcanelon @KellyBodwin This!!! I’ve been looking for this! I love using #<< in xaringan slides to highlight lines, but there’s so many times I just want to highlight a single element.

Garrick Aden-Buie (@grrrck; 22): Of course I’m certain this whole thing was kicked off by @moh_fodil introducing #rstats and xaringan to the magical fabric.js library 😁 >

Travis Gerke (@travisgerke; 20): @grrrck @ClausWilke @jaredlander Awesome tip, I’ve always wondered about this! I unfortunately do have to email slides/docs to collabs all the time 😬 I see @jaredlander recommends self_contained: true below - is this the preferred approach for both xaringan and general R markdown docs?

Claus Wilke (@ClausWilke; 20): @grrrck @jaredlander I’ll be giving a talk at the NY meetup in April and I’ll be using xaringan and I don’t want Jared to be upset with me so …

Asmae Toumi (@asmae_toumi; 20): There’s soooooooooo many tricks, i wish someone wrote a buzzfeed style “Top 10 xaringan tricks to flex on your audience”

We are R-Ladies (@WeAreRLadies; 20): @sharon000 ioslides are easy to make. I never tried to customize them though. I ❤ that transitioning from a presentation to html, or other documents is smoother w ioslides. (partly because in {xaringan} you need to mark end of slides with — that prints different in other formats)

We are R-Ladies (@WeAreRLadies; 20): @cvans It is also good to just have the list if you decide to make the full change to r-driven documents! But at least for presentations, did you try xaringan:::inf_mr()? (or the #rstudio addin) You can view your FORMATTED xaringan presentations as you are making them!!

Paulius Alaburda (@p_alab; 10): @apreshill Rmarkdown is definitely a game changer, examples and targeted guides help! I still haven’t adopted xaringan as it seems difficult to go from template to finished presentation. And also, front matter params still feel like black magic!

datamaps (@datamaps; 0/2): Ditch powerpoint! Start make presentations great again with #rstats using {xaringan}, {xaringanthemer} and {xaringanExtra}
