  • Where to find .rmd files for R for Data Science
    4 projects | /r/rstats | 2 Apr 2023
    I haven’t checked to make sure exactly, but the GitHub branch for the first edition has the following transform.Rmd file which should align with your first link: https://github.com/hadley/r4ds/blob/first-ed-updates/transform.Rmd

    I'm a complete noob to github so I might be doing something wrong, but the only thing I could find was: https://github.com/hadley/r4ds/blob/main/data-transform.qmd . As you might see, the file is different from what I see on the textbook.

    I think the file you're looking for is here (i.e. on the branch for the first edition of the book).

    The one you linked is the one for the second edition of the book, which is currently being written (and pretty close to completion AFAIK). Just my two cents, but I'd switch to using the second edition for teaching if I were you. It's up to date with the latest changes to the Tidyverse (and there were a lot of changes since the first edition), better written, and uses modern syntax (native pipe, anonymous functions, ...).
  • [Help] When rendering a Quarto Markdown (.qmd) to HTML, how to have the results inside of a code block ?
    2 projects | /r/rstats | 12 Mar 2023
    I had thought about that as a solution. However, the reason why I felt like there was a way to do it was that, when looking at the book's files directory, which is available on GitHub, it doesn't seem like they did that. Here is the same chapter on the website for comparison. I also took a look at the YAML fronter matter for the chapter, as well as the .yml and .scss files for the book, but I could'nt find anything relating to this. However, I'm very new at .qmd rendering, and so maybe I've missed something ?

    The example of the output I want comes for the book R for Data Science (2nd edition) .

  • Data Import Question from R for Data Science book
    2 projects | /r/rstats | 24 Dec 2022
    Actually this raises quite an interesting issue (or challenge, if you wish) - 1st edition was published January 2017 but the online version has seen quite many updates and fixes (you can check commits of first-ed-updates branch . To publish those updates, book is re-compiled again, so code blocks get re-evaluated. But many of used packages have seen some changes during those past 5 years, anything between new default values to major (read: breaking) rev steps, for the current state check https://r4ds.had.co.nz/introduction.html#colophon , you'll notice that the 1st issue now uses current R & and latest readr (2.1.3 at the time of writing).

    tl;dr: packages change, 1st ed of R4DS is getting old; while 2nd ed - https://r4ds.hadley.nz/ - is not ready for print, I'd personally pick this over the 1st ed.
  • From Quarto to orgmode
    3 projects | /r/orgmode | 22 Nov 2022
    One nice feature of quarto is the ability to create a multipage html site (e.g. https://r4ds.hadley.nz/) and pdf from the same source files. Is there a orgmode package out there, that provides something similar out of the box?
