Reproducible Research in R with rrtools

31st October, Northwest Universities R Day

Workshop Outline




Familiarity with Version Control through RStudio and rmarkdown.

System Requirements:

Pandoc (>= 1.17.2)


If you don’t have LaTeX installed, consider installing TinyTeX, a custom LaTeX distribution based on TeX Live that is small in size but functions well in most cases, especially for R users.

Check docs before before installing.

devtools requirements

You might also need a set of development tools to install and run devtools. On Windows, download and install Rtools, and devtools takes care of the rest. On Mac, install the Xcode command line tools. On Linux, install the R development package, usually called r-devel or r-base-dev.
