Slidify helps you create and publish beautiful HTML5 presentations from RMarkdown
Slidify is still under heavy development. You can install it from
github using the
devtools package. You will also need
slidifyLibraries which contains all external libraries required by
install_github('slidify', 'ramnathv') install_github('slidifyLibraries', 'ramnathv')
You can initialize a presentation by running
create. This will create a scaffold for your presentation and open an Rmd file for you to edit.
Write your presentation in RMarkdown, using a newline followed by three dashes to separate slides. You can mix markdown with code chunks to create a reproducible slide deck.
Generate your presentation by running
slidify. This will create a static HTML5 presentation that you can open locally in your browser.
# publish to github # create an empty repo on github. replace USER and REPO with your repo details publish(user = USER, repo = REPO) # publish to rpubs publish(title = 'My Deck', 'index.html', host = 'rpubs')

slidify is to completely separate writing of content from its rendering, so that content can be written once in
R Markdown, and rendered as an
HTML5 presentation using any of the
HTML5 slide frameworks supported.
