Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 74): Great #blogdown content in this blog by @bieri_bernhard > And a beautiful #HugoApero website 👏 I love the dark theme! 🌙 > #RStats

Gabriel Andrade-Ponce (@Gatorco_AP; 20): @MariLudopata @kcp0621 Con blogdown se pueden hacer locuras, pero para blogs más sencillos yo recomiendo distill o el mismo Quarto

Sébastien Rochette (@StatnMap; 13): 🐙Do you like the “gh-pages” branch where you can follow the changes in your deployed website on @github ? 🦊Do you miss a similar functionnality in @gitlab ? 👉 I built a trick to make it possible: It can interest #rstats {pkgdown} / {blogdown} users

A. Jordan Nafa (@adamjnafa; 10): @devon_cantwell It does petty much everything but it was relatively easy to get set up because it’s built on a modified version of the wowchemy academic template and blogdown. Super easy to use if you know R and Markdown. Source code is here

Noah Greifer (@noah_greifer; 10): @_psyguy @quarto_pub But also this is a blogdown site. I followed several blogdown guides scattered across the web (probably why it was so hard). But now that it’s set up, I do understand it better.

Houston H. ❤️🇺🇦 Haynes (@h3techdev; 0/2): Hey @MangelMaxime I really dig Nacara and have ruminated on extending it to import Hugo templates. I have a lot of experience with it as an outgrowth of working in the #Rstats ecosystem (via blogdown/pandoc). Has it been given any consideration?


Vitoria Piai (@vipiai; 3614): I took longer than I had hoped but here it is: A free book (chapter) on “Speaking” w contributions by Rinus Verdonschot @janakl4us @sriescornou @BrielleStarkPhD @Josephine_WD Annie Ohlerth

IU Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences Dept (@iusphs; 241): Assistant Professor @BrielleStarkPhD authored a chapter on aphasia & language errors in this free ebook “speaking.” This is an intro text about speaking, written by a variety of experts, with a psychological, linguistic, and neuroscientific point of view:

Dr. Brielle C. Stark (she/her) (@BrielleStarkPhD; 81): Had great fun writing this chapter and thanks to @Josephine_WD for additional info & tweaking!

Matthew B Jané (@MattJan4; 62): @PsychdOnScience @flourn0 Here’s an online textbook on applying meta analysis methodology in R > > There is also a newer systematic review and meta analysis/systematic review software called HubMeta that’s super easy to use and has some great features

Vitoria Piai (@vipiai; 60): Version controlled project on github released via (FOR FREE!!! Better than any textbook you would recommend to your students, right? 😆) It is far from complete and critically one whole section is still missing! Interested in contributing? Get in touch.

Akira Terui (@m_laevis; 41): Rのdistillパッケージを駆使してラボのページを一新した。Rの解説などはbookdownで再構築する予定。Githubでホストしているので広告なし、サーバー代なし。

Raphael Nishimura (@rnishimura; 30): @TonyCastrox @lorenagbarberia @gen_heleno Só acessar o link. Ele está num formato de bookdown, não sei se tem como fazer um download do livro, acho que só pelo browser mesmo.

Exploratory Data Alex (@alexkyllo; 30): @tcarpenter216 @machsci I also think that much of the best material on longitudinal methods is locked away in expensive graduate level textbooks. Here’s a counterexample thanks to @SolomonKurz, I would love to see more content like this and have it cross-pollinate the ML lit:

Tom Mock ❤️ #QuartoPub (@thomas_mock; 20): @sedgeboy @tladeras Quarto (and RMarkdown) support bash. > {bash} for the chunk - can be mixed with R chunks as well. > All knitr chunk engines: > Like awk, bash, zsh, etc

Michael McCarthy (@mccarthymg; 20): @GKountourides @SolomonKurz Looks fine! One small change I would make is to avoid title case in file/directory names—it makes writing file paths less error prone > You might also consider using child documents ( to split up sections of the paper, and then structure files like this:

Random Variable (@distribution_fu; 13): As a Statistics Research Student, If anybody ask me where you will go to read 📖, My one an only answer will be bookdown, A lot of book on various topics, free and clearly explained concepts…. Here is the link > #RStats

Lauren ‘LB’ Canary 🏳️‍🌈 (@CanaryLauren; 10): @cath_lavallee @FralinBiomed @VT_CS @virginia_tech I love the this pirate themed R tutorial: >

Anja Proske (@AnjaProske; 10): @Michael_Dillman @LokatisSophie @campusnatur_fu @FU_Berlin The full study including the methods is available for free till Oct 21st via A website by @MathiasHarrer helped me a lot with the analysis:; PM me if you have any questions regarding my data collection in the field. Best of luck!

Lisa DeBruine 🏳️‍🌈 (@LisaDeBruine; 10): Does anyone know how to change the default save location for plot images in #bookdown? They’re saving in my images directory and making it a mess. I want to organise them by chapter, or at least all in images/figures. > The knitr opt fig.path is “figure/”, so that’s not it.

Kevin (@estadisticarl; 10): Attempting to use bookdown R package for lecture notes next semester. Kaya ko kayang i-sustain? HAHAHA

Eamon C (@EamonCaddigan; 0/2): I’m reading about using other languages with RMarkdown (I’m finding the Python and SQL integration especially handy), and came across a cute Easter Egg in the Cookbook. #rstats


Isabella Velásquez (@ivelasq3; 14734): Don’t want to manually convert R Markdown docs to Quarto? > knitr 1.40 has a new function convert_chunk_header() to convert from .Rmd to .qmd. Or, stay with .Rmd & use the new chunk option syntax. > Embrace the hashpipe #|! > More on #rstats open source:

Lluís Revilla Sancho (@Lluis_Revilla; 41): I have great analyzing and presenting skills: - I’ve done complex analysis of patients’ samples #RNAseq with publications (+PhD 🧑‍🎓) - Running multiple automated reports (with knitr and starting with quarto) - I presented at large conferences: useRs2021! & NHSR2021

j (@SimpleTeo; 10): @Tjdriii It’s the new version of R Markdown by the RStudio guys (the goal is to be language agnostic but tbh that’s a lie). > Seems to have an option to automatically create websites like you would with a SSG, but a bit more full featured because rmd –knitr–> html is already so nice.

Christopher Nindyo (@ChristoNindyo; 10): My dumb idea : Screenshot the graph, edit with ms.paint. Save the file in R Project. Then show in r with knitr include graphics. At least it works for me. Haha.


Exploratory Data Alex (@alexkyllo; 30): @adamjnafa tinytex::reinstall_tinytex()

Aaron Gullickson (@AaronGullickson; 20): @andy___jones Use tinytex instead.

Ewan Donnachie (@ERDonnachie; 10): @andy___jones @rstats_tweets MikTeX has proved a nightmare in a complex corporate setting. I’d like to switch to tinytex, but only MikTeX supports Arial font via the uarial package (which I unfortunately need).

Dr. Robert M Flight (@rmflight; 10): @andy___jones You do need a latex compiler, unfortunately. > There is the {tinytex} R package that allows easier installs of latex that might be helpful instead of trying to manage it yourself.


Meghan Harris (@meghansharris; 9110): We are once again, NOT going to talk about how long it took to hack these. Converting this to Quarto from Xaringan was harder than I thought; but also my brain isn’t working too well these days so it’s probably me 🤷🏾‍♀️😅

Charlotte (@charliejhadley; 233): I’m pleased to announce that I’ve switched from {xaringan} to {quarto} for all new content. > Turns out Quarto’s live previewing feature is BILLION times faster than xaringan’s. > Plus! I’d not really understood the power of quarto fragments!

Meghan Harris (@meghansharris; 133): Thanks to: @statsgen ( Blog on transitioning from xarnigan to quarto > @spcanelon ( Ex. SCSS code > @PipingHotData for pointing me in the right direction with resources > @StackOverflow for everything else 😅 > Now I’m going to bed

Gustavo Gonzalez (@DronesRed; 121): Minha ideia era começar meu set no banho e tosa dançando assim atras do xaringan e só depois eu entrava

Manuel Toral (@jmtoralc; 60): @raulpacheco Canva es el de mostrar chavos, yo uso una implementaron de RMD llamada Xaringan, pero Quarto + JS están llegando fuerte.

Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 60): @meghansharris Meghan these are beautiful! 🤩 And i feel you— the xaringan-quarto conversion is not trivial 😐

Thomas Pollet (@tvpollet; 50): Had a great time at the body psychology research meeting organised by @dr_liz_evans. Here are the slides from my talk on sample characteristics. (made with Xaringan by @xieyihui and xaringanExtra by @grrrck)

Andrew Heiss (@andrewheiss; 30): @LucyStats @minebocek Ha I’m still using xaringan for slides 😬

ailíraM (@mmfbee; 30): oia, faz uns slides da hora ein! será que os dias do xaringan estão contados?

Charlotte (@charliejhadley; 10): @mattansb Ah, this would be a plug-in everyone else would hate because it would immediately re-write all # as ## because I’m only using them as a hangover from {xaringan} > There’s a Quarto revealjs specific meaning to # that I don’t want

Charlotte (@charliejhadley; 10): @jgeller_phd @bmwiernik See if you can jump into it with these two files > But it did take me an hour to convert my 20 slide {xaringan} slides to {quarto} because of differences in format (and customising CSS)

Silvia Canelón (@spcanelon; 10): @juliesquid @allison_horst Thanks so much Julie! If you have any suggestions for improvement, I’m very happy to receive them 😃 What do you think of the tabs? In v1.0 I went a little tab-wild bc I had just learned how to add them to xaringan, and this time around I wondered if it’s too much 🤷🏽‍♀️

“Ben” Byunghwan Son (@Byunghwan_Son; 0/2): I cannot be the only person whose OLD #xaringan slides were ruined because of the #fontawesome updates. #RStats
