I am getting ready to give a talk on reproducible research using R/RStudio with git/GitHub and I am looking for thoughts on what else to add. My audience is mostly absolute novices but I expect to have a few code warriors who do not keep track of the new features in the RStudio interface. I am focusing on the "word processing tools" built into the modern RStudio IDE and R Markdown. The 35 minute watch before you get here is done: https://vimeo.com/585821837 and the "slides" are on the web: https://distracted-poitras-2e23ff.netlify.app/#1.
I am outlining an hour long "live code" session where I will show people the research papers I am writing (on HIV and mental health).
I want to show useful functions for "inline" R code in an R Mardown document. I use a few libraries/functions all the time:
- scales::percent(blah, scientific=FALSE)
- scales::pvalue(blah, accuracy = 0.001, add_p =TRUE)
Does anybody have thoughts on what other functions are useful for "writing" the text in a paper? Anybody see anything important missing from the slides/video?
