Publishing R Markdown scripts on RPubs

RPubs is a free web-publishing platform for R Markdown files, provided by RStudio. You can create a free account on www.rpubs.com.

We need 3 things to begin creating R Markdown (.rmd) files:

  • R
  • R Studio IDE version 0.96 or higher
  • knitr package

knitr package is used to reformat R into several different output formats, including HTML, markdown, or plain text. Check for more at http://yihui.name/knitr/.

Once knitr is installed close and relaunch RStudio. Then go to the file menu and choose File -> New… choose R Markdown & create your rmd document.

Once Finished click the Knit HTML button to see the preview.

On the preview screen press the publish button to publish to RPub.com
