Hello world -- blogdown

Gist

Blogdown accepts .md or .rmd files, write as though it’s any other .rmd file. links are made with [txt](link) and images are made with ![hover_txt](img). Keep in mind the cheatsheet and your favorite .rmd settings.

Remember to store static files like images and data in ./static/ (ie. ./static/MyFolder/Pic1.png) and reference them from relative to the stat folder![My picture](/MyFolder/Pic1.png).

However, data is stored and referneced as any other .rmd. (ie ./content/posts/data/df.rda) is called with load("./data/df.rda").

R code

Blogdown runs R chunks as any R markdown would:

"hello world, now in an `R` chunk!"
## [1] "hello world, now in an `R` chunk!"
head(mtcars)

Referencing images and data

Navigating images is handled differently than .rmd’s, while loading data is handled the same. Dr. Navarro has a long post about this here. In short, here are a few working examples. If you need help getting started, you can check the the \static\helloworld and \content\posts\helloworld on my github repo.

local data

load("./helloworld/df.rda")
head(df)
##           x        y
## 1  0.218540  0.32562
## 2 -0.299294 -0.68676
## 3  1.874378 -1.23817
## 4  0.369050  0.31933
## 5  0.925992 -0.06391
## 6 -0.004362 -1.70455
