  • Project mention: Pandoc | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-28

    I'm surprised to see no one has pointed out [RMarkdown + RStudio](https://rmarkdown.rstudio.com) as one way to immediately interface with Pandoc.

    I used to write papers and slides in LaTeX (using vim, because who needs render previews), then eventually switched to Pandoc (also vim). I eventually discovered RMarkdown+RStudio. I was looking for a nice way to format a simple table and discovered that rmarkdown had nice extensions of basic markdown (this was many years ago so maybe that is incorporated into vanilla markdown/pandoc).

    The RMarkdown page claims:

    > R Markdown supports dozens of static and dynamic output formats including HTML, PDF, MS Word, Beamer, HTML5 slides, Tufte-style handouts, books, dashboards, shiny applications, scientific articles, websites, and more.

    ...which I think is largely due to using pandoc as the core generator.

    RStudio shows you the pandoc command it runs to generate your document, which I've used to figure out the pandoc command I want to run when I've switched to using pandoc directly.

    This is a bit of a "lazy" way to interact with pandoc. Maybe the "laziest" aspect: when I get a new computer, I can install the entire stack by installing Rstudio, then opening a new rmarkdown document. Rstudio asks whether I'd like to install all the necessary libraries -- click "yes" and that's it. Maybe that sounds silly but it used to be a lot of work to manage your LaTeX install. These days I greatly favor things that save me time, which seems to get more precious every year.

  • Project mention: Do the work | /r/RStudio | 2023-10-04

    Provide us with the code in a minimum working example (MWE) form (typically called reprex in the R community). If the process of producing this doesn't help you solve the issue, it at least allows us to (a) copy and paste to run the code, and (b) far more likely to be able to spot the error(s) than when they’re embedded in a load of code that isn’t necessary to highlight the problem. These should be placed in a code block, either every line indented 4 spaces or within backticks. (Credit to Mooks79 for this.)
