Description

Description

R offers many first class features for statistics and data science. One of these, is certainly Rmarkdown, that allows seamless integration of analysis (code) and text. This greatly improves reproducibility, reduces copy-paste and others errors and enhances possibilities for automation.

R markdown offers three main types of output: pdf, html and docx. The first session introduces the basic framework, the output-specific possibilities and the bookdown-extension.

The second session explores some general approaches for automation (using self-built templates for report-sections or complete reports) and presents Officedown. The latter is less flexible than Rmarkdown, but offers more options for docx-output.
