while having fun with RStudio 1.1.383 (I really dig the Dark theme! ), I noticed that the options to build an R presentation with R Markdown are Beamer (ugh!), ioslides (nice), and Slidy (never tried, but I heard good things). However, personally I’m a huge fan of
xaringan and I was wondering if you would consider the idea of adding it to the default options…it would be nice, IMO, to have a “library” of
xaringan themes, like in a famous commercial program to write presentation Of course, I’m not proposing something as bloated as that: one thousand themes, of which 990 are ugly, would be useless. But three or four main themes could help the average user switch from the some unnamed commercial alternatives, to writing presentations in R.
I noticed that RStudio offers .Rpres also, which I didn’t know about. These look really nice, nicer to me than the default ioslides presentation: they do resemble a bit the average
xaringan presentation, but I could be mistaken. However, I have the impression that they aren’t very customizable. If my impression is correct, then a
xaringan alternative could be potentially quite attractive.
