Probability and Statistics: a simulation-based introduction

A reproducible, open-access book (BSD-3 code, CC-BY ND 4.0 text).

Building the Book

  • Prerequisite: pandoc and pandoc-citeproc must be installed on the operating system and available on the PATH.

Building the HTML

From either the shell script or R commands, HTML output will be generated in directory _book, with top-level page

prob-stats/_book/index.html

Building HTML from unix

From the shell, first change to the directory for the repo, then run the build shell script.

$ cd prob-stats
$ ./build.sh

Building HTML from R

Load the bookdown library, set the working directory to the directory for the repo, then render the book.

$ library(bookdown)
$ setwd('prob-stats')
$ bookdown::render_book('index.Rmd')

Rendering with just index.Rmd as an argument defers the style to the index.Rmd yaml header.

Building the PDF

Pre-requisite: Building the pdf requires pdflatex to be installed on the operating system and available on the PATH.

From either the shell script or R commands, PDF output will be generated in

prob-stats/_main.pdf

Building PDF from unix

From the shell, first change to the directory for the repo, then run the build shell script.

$ cd prob-stats
$ ./build-pdf.sh

Building PDF from R

Load the bookdown library, set the working directory to the directory for the repo, then render the book.

$ library(bookdown)
$ setwd('prob-stats')
$ bookdown::render_book('index.Rmd', 'tufte_book2')

In this case, we specified the tufte_book2 format in the call to render, which will override the default specification in index.Rmd. The PDF file will be in file _book/_main.pdf.

Note on RStudio

If you try to build using the knit button in RStudio from the index.Rmd file, you will get the default HTML output because that is what is specified in the YAML header at the top of index.Rmd.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
