This project contains a Makefile and sample article for creating a new project using R and LaTeX.

To use this Makefile to create a new project:

  1. Download the Makefile and article-generic.tex
  2. Create a folder for your new project, e.g. (on Unix) mkdir exampleproj
  3. Copy the downloaded files into this new folder
  4. Run make: make

Following the steps above and using the file as-is will create:

  • a setup.R file for clearing the workspace, setting paths, and loading libraries
  • a data directory for storing data files (csv, rda, etc)
  • a drafts directory for LaTeX, including a generic starter article
  • a graphics library for storing plots and figures to include in your article
  • an rcode directory for your R scripts
