Christophe Dervieux (@chrisderv; 110): Really cool new usage of rmarkdown output format and knitr engine ! 😄 Eager to look at the internal @MilesMcBain ! 👏

William B. Fuckley (@opinonhaver; 91): fuck do files. have your code in a markdown document that you never knit because something in it breaks knitr and you don’t know how to fix it, the way that god intended

Steve Haroz 📊👁️🧠 (@sharoz; 50): Does anyone know how to reduce the width of the content in the knitr html output? It’s really wide, but my understanding of the readability literature suggests that under ~80 characters improves comprehension.

Raniere Silva (@rgaiacs; 22): @mxcatnap @quarto_pub Technical choices will depend of people working on the project and project’s size. For a small project with only one person, I would use knitr to compile and reticulate to handle the data sharing between #python and #RStats in the same document.

Lisa Levinson (@lisalevinson; 13): Any #rstats folks know why I can’t currently autocomplete past a $ when using inline R for Rmarkdown reporting in RStudio (2022.07.1)? Is it just me? If I tab at r mtcars$ I just get (No matches). Completes fine in an R chunk or console, and also with r knitr::opts_chunk$.

Mickaël CANOUIL (@MickaelCanouil; 11): @mxcatnap @sciencealice @quarto_pub #RStats / #Python is “easy” to achieve using {knitr} engine in #QuartoPub and {reticulate} package.

Josh McNeill (@joshisanonymous; 10): @shilaan01 This feels ripe for another “they design posters… in PowerPoint” uproar. I’m definitely for this for the reproducibility aspect. I do my posters in LaTeX with knitr.

Scott (@scrottie; 10): @sunstarsys R. R has knitr and pandoc. Give it markdown, get a properly formatted pdf or docx in any of a hundred journal article styles/formats, including citation formation, with support for most MD extensions, inline figure generation, inline data analysis…

David Ubilava (@DavidUbilava; 13): #RStats #RMarkdown > My xaringan html slide fonts are fine on laptop/desktop, but they don’t scale down (enough) on phone, so they end up getting out of the slide frame. Is there a solution to this? My quick google search didn’t yield much.

Michael Flynn (@flynnpolsci; 10): @stephenjwild @adamjnafa I started playing with Quarto a few months ago, having finally converted all of my lecture slides to xaringan, and just thought “Dammit…I’m going to migrate again, aren’t I?” > But yeah, I used beamer for a few years and definitely prefer the markdown based platform much more.
