Dynamic Documents with R Markdown (Part 1)

This is an intermediate/advanced level tutorial on dynamic documents with R Markdown. It starts with the basic idea of literate programming as well as its role in reproducible research. Among all document formats that knitr supports, we will only focus on R Markdown (.Rmd). We will give an overview of existing output formats in rmarkdown, and explain how to customize them. We will show how to build new output format functions by extending exising formats. The packages tufte and bookdown will be used as examples. We will mention other applications related to R Markdown such as HTML widgets [Vaidyanathan et al., 2015], Shiny documents [Chang et al., 2015], and how to run code from other languages (C, C++, and so on).

For details, refer to tutorial description.
