knitr in a knutshell a minimal tutorial
KnitR is a really important tool for reproducible research. You create documents that are a mixture of text and code; when processed through KnitR, the code is replaced by the results and/or figures produced.
Yihui Xie, the developer of KnitR, has written clear and thorough documentation, many useful examples and demos, and a very nice book. Nevertheless, I thought it might be useful to have some of the basic things explained again a bit differently.
- KnitR with R Markdown
- Figures and tables
- Comments on reproducibility
- KnitR with AsciiDoc
- KnitR with LaTeX
- Moving from Sweave to KnitR
If you find KnitR useful, consider buying Yihui’s book.
