Notes

Misc tricks

  • docker X11 sharing
docker run  -ti --rm -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix:ro r-base
  • devtools::install_version
  • devtools::use_readme_rmd (with git commit hooks)

  • How to specify a custom action for the knit button: add knit: (function(inputFile, encoding) ...) to the top-level YAML header; e.g.┬áto control output directory:

rmarkdown::render(inputFile, 
                  encoding = encoding, 
                  output_file = paste0(dirname(inputFile),
                                       basename(inputFile), 
                                       ".pdf"))
