Jesús Lagos (@Vdot_Spain; 27457): Si quieres aprender a programar con #Rstats, hacer visualizaciones como las que veis en RRSS o en informes, cuadros de mando con shiny, conectar con bases de datos externas, aprender métricas avanzadas, etc. En 2023 vuelve “Curso de R para analistas de Fútbol” Te cuento 🧵

Mickaël CANOUIL ( (@MickaelCanouil; 272): Finally, I updated my #BlogDown #Hugo website to #QuartoPub It’s not 100 % completed but close enough to what I wanted. Tweaks will come in due time for “talks” listing page. Check it out! 😉

Laura Naslund (@laura_naslund; 51): I had a blast making this website. Blogdown + a @wowchemy template = ✨magic✨. Please check it out and use the forms at bottom of the page to submit publications, jobs, news, and opportunities for us to share!

LIBD rstats club (@LIBDrstats; 12): We are thinking of switching our blog to #quarto following the lead by @Bioconductor & @kozo2 as it’s quite easy to contribute to that renders nicely into > Compare vs (although we still ❤️ #blogdown) #rstats (@JosiahParry; 10): @nicoleradziwill @grrrck I made only 1 site I really truly liked with blogdown and I never did anything with it :( lmk how it goes!

Jana Klaus (@janakl4us; 163): Just a reminder that this book on the basic concepts of language production, curated by @vipiai, exists, and unlike premium Twitter accounts, it’s free and useful 🙃 >

flotsam (@researchremora; 70): @Mookmonster30 @kearneymw This book by @HolbrookTom came up in the POLMETH listserv and looks like a good textbook for beginners: > @matt_blackwell also shares his superb course resources:

Jack Davison (@JDavison; 50): @nrennie35 Great blog post Nicola! btw - you can access the AURN through R using a dedicated package ( which will save you much of your data cleaning steps if you use UK AQ network data in the future [↪](

Joyce Robbins (@jtrnyc; 21): With #bookdown + #GitHubActions + #GitHubPages should packages in DESCRIPTION be listed as Imports or Suggests? #rstats 🤔

Sciolus Sagaxus Viringo (@SciolusSagaxus; 20): @Sphynxhibition1 Gonna see if I can do some R programming with the Bookdown package to make a site.

KRSK (@koro485; 644): 疫学研究向けのR programmingの授業作るとしたら、purrrとpivot_longer(wider)あたりはしこたまやらせるかなぁ。使うこと多いので。あとはbroom::tidyとかknitr, gtsummaryあたりのreproducibleな表作成スキル。

david knorr (@davidknorr; 80): @arthurturrell At the start of every script: > library(pacman) p_load(janitor, tidyverse, knitr) > p_load() loads packages separated by comma and will install the package if it’s not already installed!

Ilja | Илья | (@fubits; 30): Now re: @quarto_pub it’s almost the same approach (one could also source the script in the document-level front matter!). We just need the special knitr chunk ::: {#id} (which is <div id="id">) and we can mount here the same way we did in the Observable doc. Crazy times.

Grzegorz Sapijaszko (@gsapijaszko; 10): @HakimAbdi Don’t agree. It’s not so hard to put at the end of your code something like: packages <- c(“terra”, “lidR”, “lidRplugins”) knitr::write_bib(packages, file = “../../packages.bib”) > and add the results to your bibliography file.

Jékely Lab (@JekelyLab; 100): About a year ago I started using R Markdown and Xaringan to prepare presentation and I love it. Efficient, elegant, saves disk space and allows you you to easily prepare slides with a very consistent layout and style. More info and a template here:

mathieu rajerison (@datagistips; 10): @TheuliereMael top ça ! Je peux utiliser xaringan aussi pour ça ?
