Tutorials

Following you will find tutorials. Most of them have short step to step instructions. I am trying to illustrate all steps with screenshots. Sometimes the same subject is also presented as slide. There is an extra section with files they are just full-screen slides and nothing else. If there is a slide show availabe, then here in this section you will find them integrated in the article.

  • Blogdown tutorial (Part 1)
  • Part 1 of this tutorial explains how to install a Hugo theme on top of R, RStudio and blogdown. For this demonstration I will use the new (preview) version of RStudio as it facilitates the installation of Hugo and a theme.
