Last week, I came across this blog post from Yihui-down called save() vs saveRDS(). It was issued after a response from Jenny Bryan on Twitter. So when more experimented people like them advise to use a tool, it is for a reason. So I decided to give it a try. Not to compare save() and saveRDS, but saveRDS to write_csv(). This is not a complete review as I lack the knowledge, but a short intro to something I found very useful.
EDIT: I provided a quick update here, and it will be the main entrance of a post series regarding this subject, cheers ! https://roelandtn.frama.io/post/update-for-the-mexico-project/ Hello there ! It has been a long time since my last post. That’s because of a great project I’m working on for my Master degree. Explanations can be messy, we are at an early stage, just collecting data and try to select the most useful ones.
I recently discover a R package, called liftr package. It allows the build of pdf document (and html files, but i didn’t test it) from a Rmarkdown file. Fully integrated in RStudio, the R code is executed (and other code as well, I tried python) and results are displayed. You don’t even need to have LaTeX on your computer, since the document compilation take place in a docker image.
