I have to confess that I didn't know background images could be "vectorized" in CSS. So thanks a lot for sharing the trick!

So are JSON, YAML, ... I think these are signs that more and more software authors have been tortured enough by guessing encodings and doing iconv all the time.

Good question. I suggest you upload the images to Github (in a PR reply, not in GIT), and use the URLs of the uploaded images. Thanks!

I'd like to read a blog post on what exactly the problem was, and how you fixed it. Thanks! :)

I see the sofa, but where is the dog? 🤔

I vaguely remember someone wrote an R package for this but I can't find it now. I think we can certainly get rid of `make` here, and make it work seemlessly with GIT (basically git checkout two versions separately, do pandoc -to latex, then latexdiff, and run latex).

Got you. For numerous times I've sighed "if only we could apply CSS to LaTeX" because so many tasks are trivially easy with CSS but incredibly complicated with LaTeX. Hopefully in a few months you'll see the hope of ditching LaTeX in favor of HTML for beautiful PDFs. Stay tuned.

Thanks! If there are any topics that you are particularly interested in, please feel free to let me know. The hardest part of giving talks or tutorials is to guess what exactly the audience wants to learn.

The only documentation at the moment is the poster template in the package, which you can access from the RStudio New R Markdown wizard:

Thanks! I have just finished it a couple of days ago, but I don't want to post the link directly here since the package is still too young. Google for "R pagedown".

If you have tried the dev version of rmarkdown and the issue persists, please file a report to . Thanks!

And this will also be easier in RStudio 1.2 (it will detect packages used but not installed, and let you install all with a single click):

Or xfun::pkg_attach2(), which essentially does the same thing:

Yongfu Liao... The name sounds familiar to me. Just checked it on Github and realized it was this recent contribution (of a new theme) to xaringan: It's amazing that he just learned R for about a year.

Phew! Glad that I survived again! 😌 I knew there would be a group of people lining up to kill me for this... Good to see they are dispersing.

我的推特只用来发布重要的事情(一年通常不超过两件)以及回复别人。我的博客现在已经沦陷到大约每五十篇文章里才有一篇讲 R 的了。建议去 COS 论坛混迹:

I have seen this a couple of times myself (on macOS with RStudio daily builds), but I don't know how to reliably reproduce the problem; nor do I know why it crashes RStudio...

Rendering Rmd to HTML directly on Github will be tricky and a lot of work for Github (which I don't think is reasonable), but rendering Rmd notebooks will be a lot easier technically. If you want the latter, you may upvote this old issue
