Chapter 6

These files and folders are meant to accompany the sixth chapter from the https://learn.r-journalism.com class.

The quickest way to access the data for this chapter is to 1) make sure your current project directory is logically organized.

Hopefully, you've created folder on your computer in your Documents folder called learning-r or something like that.

Once you've set your working directory (with maybe setwd()) then you can run these commands in your console to download the correct folders and data:

install.packages("usethis")

and then

usethis::use_course("https://github.com/r-journalism/learn-chapter-6/archive/master.zip")

Otherwise:

Clone or download and unzip this repo. Make sure the folder is not in a temporary unzipped folder.

To ensure these files work as expected, please make sure the project directory is set up correctly:

When you type getwd() it should look something like your_file_path/learn-r-chapter-6

You can manually set this up by:

Session > Set Working Directory > To Project Directory

Alternatively, you can double click the learn-chapter-6.Rproj file from your finder/file browser.


Navigate to the .rmd files for each sub-chapter to open and follow along with each section.

Or you can execute the following commands in the console to bring up the files.

  • file.edit("rmarkdown/rmarkdown.Rmd")
  • file.edit("more_rmarkdown/more_rmarkdown.Rmd")
  • file.edit("workflow/workflow.Rmd")

To view the local html version of the .rmd files, you can try the following commands in your console to see rendered version of the sub-chapter:

  • browseURL("rmarkdown/rmarkdown.html")
  • browseURL("more_rmarkdown/more_rmarkdown.html")
  • browseURL("workflow/workflow.html")
