MickaΓ«l CANOUIL (@MickaelCanouil; 10): @heyitsmehugo @rstats_tweets For short, `blogdown::check_site()Λ‹ should tell you everything you need to know/do. > https://t.co/wsmWBXlWsW

MickaΓ«l CANOUIL (@MickaelCanouil; 10): @heyitsmehugo @rstats_tweets There is a blogdown::build_site()Λ‹ function (closely related to Λ‹blogdown::serve_site(). The themes folder is 100 % part of your site. Everything inside is used to build your website. You should try an older version of Hugo. (And if the errors remain, open an issue the GitHub)

Alison Presmanes Hill (@apreshill; 10): @dailyzad @mariviere1 @andrewheiss I think you can still use Hugo- you’ll just be knitting individual Rmd/qmd files. There will be no replacement for β€œserving a hugo site” or the high level functions blogdown gives you, but you could still use blogdown as an R package I think (not tested!)

Cameron Patrick (@camjpatrick; 10): @AndrewHayen @K_Sheldrick plus either blogdown or distill to create a website or blog from individual Rmd documents. I’ve used blogdown before, distill is newer and apparently easier to use: https://t.co/WTeyBPS5w7

Hugo (@heyitsmehugo; 0/2): To folks who use #blogdown to build their websites.

Michele M Tobias, PhD (@MicheleTobias; 65): Does anyone know if #rstats bookdown works with the flair package? I’m trying everything I can think of but it just seems to ignore the flair code.

SΓ©bastien Rochette (@StatnMap; 30): @antoine_fabri @CMastication @rushworth_a @tanyacash21 You can change this behavior. On my side, I changed it by default to get the the same behavior as scripts. πŸ‘‰ https://t.co/dLA0ItUcQa https://t.co/dB7i2tJ0iH

Lisa DeBruine (@LisaDeBruine; 30): I’ll probably keep working on the custom engine and add it to our #psyteachR bookdown template soon. Right now it just highlights inline code and headers, and probably doesn’t work for knitting to PDF. (I can write latex, I just don’t like to anymore.) > https://t.co/rpy19Os55x

Lisa DeBruine (@LisaDeBruine; 20): TIL that if you want to have multiple YAML files for bookdown (e.g., to render draft chapters to a different dir), you can’t name one of them _bookdown.yml and the other _bookdown_draft.yml. When you render the draft, the draft yml name changes to _bookdown.yml and overwrites it.

Theresa Smith πŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰ (@TheresaRSmith; 20): @j_l_godwin @vnminin I provide a full set of typed notes (in pdf and accessible html via bookdown) in advance. In class I write on real paper which is projected to the class via a document camera. A strange low-tech hi-tech hybrid! For the life of me, I can’t write legibly on an iPad.

Roy Williams, MPH (@Rwill235; 10): If you ever find yourself needing to create an R script from an R markdown file, you can do so using the purl() function https://t.co/REm05vEsE3

Michele M Tobias, PhD (@MicheleTobias; 10): I wrote some R code that converts <highlight></highlight> tags in an .Rmd file to <span> tags with a background color of your choice in the html after you run bookdown. It’s clunky, but it works for now. Maybe I’ll make a package out of it. https://t.co/zINdH9l4zv https://t.co/Zx7d3Rd3AE

Lisa DeBruine (@LisaDeBruine; 132): I often need to show Rmarkdown in teaching books, but it’s hard to display verbatim backticks. I made a custom knitr engine to highlight it. You set the knitr engine, include a few custom css styles, and place example markdown in code chunks labelled with md. Details πŸ‘‡ https://t.co/2l6zoTxobu

Tom Mock (@thomas_mock; 80): @LisaDeBruine Very cool! > knitr introduced a verbatim chunk recently, does that help in your use case? > https://t.co/9DU3qmZaDv

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 70): @thomas_mock @LisaDeBruine To get syntax highlighting with the verbatim engine, you need to set the lang option because knitr doesn’t know the content’s language, e.g., ```{verbatim, lang=‘md’}; then you may also need to define some CSS rules, e.g., .hljs-section {color:#0C07FF;}

Gianluca Baio (@gianlubaio; 50): @sdias_stats @tmorris_mrc @Richard_D_Riley I am weird, I know. But Rmd and knitr work really good to typeset maths (and citations etc) in semi-Latex format and then output also to docx with very good results…

Michael Flynn (@flynnpolsci; 20): So for the longest time I had trouble getting knitr::include_graphics(“…”) to display pictures from a parent directory when compiling Xaringan slides. Turns out including the error argument knitr::inclue_graphics(“…”, error = FALSE) is the secret sauce.

Fadel Megahed (@FadelMegahed; 10): @CDavieSTEM @krwpn Yes, that’s what it does in r markdown (see https://t.co/Tu5p7iBsJn). I also like viridis and RColorBrewer pkgs for picking appropriate palettes. Thank you for sharing the blog.

Tim Feeney (@Tfeend; 10): @gianlubaio @sdias_stats @tmorris_mrc @Richard_D_Riley much prefer Rmd and knitr. BUT working with some people cough physicians cough on papers limits the options. #notallphysicians

Serdar BalcΔ± (@serdarbalci; 20): @pijanes install.package(“tinytex”) installs the package to your R library. Then using tinytex::install_tinytex() tinytex package runs and installs a minor version of LaTex. You need that LaTex to generate pdfs.

Simone Secchi (@admsimat; 10): @id_func Conosci TinyTeX? Non Γ¨ male, ma io preferisco sempre una installazione completa.


BHSci_, R & Graphical Art πŸ¦„πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸŒˆ (@StarTrek_Lt; 80): If i was a R instructor, I would get beginners to get in the habit of using Rmd, so that way they can make xaringan slides and stop the power point slides. It’s cringe to me to see a R talk with power point

Lisa Lendway, she/her (@lisalendway; 40): @StarTrek_Lt @meghansharris I also still use the regular Rmd rather than xaringan, just because it’s quicker for me. But I’m still quite new to xaringan.
