Two R Markdown templates for use in assignments and dissertations/theses at the University of Liverpool. Template written primarily in LaTeX and packaged for use in R Markdown.
If using RStudio:
New File -> R Markdown -> From Template -> UoL R Markdown
Otherwise for the article:
rmarkdown::draft( 'index.Rmd', template = 'article', package = 'uolrmarkdown', create_dir = TRUE )
and for the report:
rmarkdown::draft( 'index.Rmd', template = 'report', package = 'uolrmarkdown', create_dir = TRUE )
|Chapter Report||Two Column Article|
Customisation of the knitr chunks can be accessed through
template -> defaults.r. Here additional citations may be manually added if required e.g. QGIS. Additionally the default ggplot2 theme is set here.
scripts -> functions.r provides an example r script for loading in required packages and defining custom functions. I generally use
source("./functions.r") with my scripts to prevent loading the required libs and functions each time.
The main bib file is given in
bib/kbib.bib I use Zotero to generate bibtex.
For the article template for the written work only the main
.Rmd needs editing, but in the chapter report each individual chapter should be edited separately.
