Note: Poirot shares a significant amount of codebase with Slidify. To ease development, I have integrated Poirot into the
dev branch of Slidify. These will be ported back to Poirot once the code matures.
require(devtools) install_github('poirot', 'ramnathv') install_github('slidify', 'ramnathv', ref = 'dev') install_github('slidifyLibraries', 'ramnathv')
Poirot uses markdown for text content, knitr for code chunks and mustache for templating. Poirot is highly extensible using widgets. As a publishing framework for data scientists, Poirot comes pre-equipped with support for math, visualization and tables.
