  • Using BPMN Visualization in R

    If you are not familiar with Shiny, it is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps straight from R. You can host standalone apps on a webpage or embed them in R Markdown documents or build dashboards.
  • Dumb question, but, how do I export the stats results of my data for a research paper?

    What are you writting the research paper in? One way is to use Rmarkdown so that you can easily integrate the results. Rmarkdown is generally a really good tool, so it pays of to learn it anyway.

    Meanwhile, other languages took markdown and ran with it, using (and here lies the tragedy) pandoc to embed it in their rapid development processes. They've gone on and built empires off of it, such as https://jupyter.org/ and https://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/. We can't even begin to compete. We have to re-route everything through ihaskell to even get to the starting line of the rapid, general data analytics race.

    Have you heard of knitr (https://yihui.org/knitr/)? It's the gold standard as far as I'm concerned for dynamic report generation that needs to run code. Since it supports running arbitrary shell commands, it can already be used to query remote databases as long as you have a CLI to query them with. Combined with RMarkdown (https://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/), which augments Markdown with support for LaTeX typesetting, it's the ultimate toolset for doing this kind of thing. You can read a blog post here on how to use knitr within RMarkdown: https://kbroman.org/knitr_knutshell/pages/Rmarkdown.html

    I'm not trying to be a downer, but it seems like your product is just duplicating the functionality of these existing products but does less since it only supports SQL and Markdown.

    I guess you autogenerate charts, but it says you're targeting a technical audience that is presumably comfortable calling functions in Python and R for graphical data visualization.

    This is nitpicky, and I'm sure you have some command line option to choose another port (though your "get started" doesn't show how), but mdbook also uses 3000. I'm sure they probably weren't the first to default to that, either.

    I hope this doesn't come across as downplaying your product. It looks nice. I just don't see what you offer here that can't already be done with existing data ecosystem tools. I was using RMarkdown with knitr to generate all of my papers when I was an ML grad student years ago. It felt back then like I was the only person at Georgia Tech who realized these tools existed, and now it still feels that way.

    If you're not actively collecting data (in the field or at the bench), you're probably coding. You can do many kinds of analyses without coding. You shouldn't because the only reproducible workflows we have run through actual code (and fancier ways to annotate and share code like jupyter notebooks and Rmarkdown).

    I see that you already have an answer but this might work. Had the same issue last year.
  • RStudio reliably crashing when I run an RMarkdown chunk importing more than 1 or 2 CSVs-- But when I (a) already have objects in my environment, or (b) break a chunk of multiple imports into smaller chunks of 1 import, it runs fine and does not crash. What's going on?
    reddit.com/r/rstats | 2021-02-08
    I've never experienced this with rmd files, which makes me curious about the rest of the environment. I'd submit a report on https://github.com/rstudio/rmarkdown if you're fairly certain that it's a rmarkdown issue.

    We have tried for almost four years without success: https://github.com/rstudio/rmarkdown/issues/1020 We did hear back from Github for a few times, but there has been no sign of progress at all. We will truly appreciate it if anyone can connect us to a Github contact to push this forward.
