UIUC Themes for R Markdown (uiucthemes)

The uiucthemes package includes my collection of UIUC-themed templates for presentations, journal articles, and exam templates.

Included in the package are:

  • beamer_illinois: Illinois colored header boxes
  • beamer_orange: Minimialist slides with a color preference to orange.
  • latex_journal_report: initial implementation of a journal entry for a class.
