I have a
bookdown project that uses a
REAMDE.Rmd separately from the actual book: https://github.com/ropensci-books/targets. I prefer to use a
README.Rmd to produce
README.md so I can automatically generate the citation. But when I render
bookdown thinks it is part of the book, and it generates the final HTML file instead of
README.md. Is there a way to tell
README.Rmd is not a chapter?
Side note: yes, https://github.com/ropensci-books/targets/blob/main/README.md appears to agree with https://github.com/ropensci-books/targets/blob/main/README.Rmd, but I am currently writing the former manually.
