This website has nothing to do with RStudio, this is an unofficial website created by one user who really enjoys working with R Markdown and showing its possibilities. You can learn more about R Markdown in the page embedded below, which is the official website by the company RStudio, who are responsible for maintaining the R Markdown ecosystem.
Website Daily Update Process
- An R script connects to a data source that refreshes every hour and creates a visualization.
- The data and visualization are then displayed in a variety of different formats using the same structure and code, but creating different kinds of documents specifying the R Markdown output type accordingly and rendering each one.
- The results shown on this website are automatically refreshed every 24 hours using open source tools that are ideal for both personal work as well as work done within an organization. You can view the status of the latest runs at the link above.
- This website was created and is maintained by Riccardo (Ricky) Esclapon.
- See the GitHub repository associated with the website: https://github.com/ries9112/R-Markdown-Gallery
- Why bother making this unofficial R Markdown gallery when RStudio has made one themselves? First, because the content available on the website has become outdated and to show more variety over time (including formats maintained by users in the community instead of only those officially supported by RStudio), but secondly to illustrate the fact that these documents can be run over and over again on a new subset of data for a new analysis, and that these tools work great even for those who work with Python or work within a large organization.
