Create and maintain websites with R Markdown and blogdown

February 26, 2018

In this talk, I will show you how you can quickly create a website from scratch (with RStudio and the blogdown package), and talk about the workflow of maintaining a website. Ideally, everything is automated (from creating, building, to deploying the website) and the only thing left for you to do is write the content. I'll also demonstrate a few less well-known features of blogdown, such as the .Rmarkdown format, how to host arbitrary Rmd output files (such as PDF and slides) with a blogdown website, and the awesome hugo server -navigateToChanged.
