Blogging about R presents its own technical challenges. The need to include sophisticated R code, Shiny applications, R Markdown documents, and interactive graphics severely taxes traditional blogging platforms such as WordPress and Typepad. We believe that the new blogdown package, which generates static websites using R Markdown and Hugo, represents the future of R blogging. In this talk, we will describe the basics of the blogdown package, and share our experiences editing and producing RStudio’s R Views blog using blogdown as the blog engine and GitHub as the platform for coordination.
