Is there any advantage or disadvantage to using RPubs compared to GitHub Pages? If I knit R Markdown to HTML, it seems both accomplish the same thing, which is a place to host a static HTML page.
RPubs is integrated into RStudio IDE, so you save a few clicks there, but that seems to be the only real difference (besides the RPubs header). GitHub Pages allows other content besides R Markdown in the same repo. Neither service provides any kind of advanced features like analytics (not sure what other features I would even want). I don't have much experience with either option. Is there anything I am missing?
