Section 12 Bookdown
In this section we are going just touch on
bookdown::bookdown_site, which is a custom “function” for generating multi-paged document, books, thesis and other documents.
Thus far in this part of the book we have been using default
site generation function
Bookdown package provide another convenient function to build multi-paged book or alike documents by setting
site key to the following value in our YAML
_site.yml file. Let’s add the following code into our
_site.ytml file and press “Build”
12.2 Masking files
As was mention previous, any files with an
_ at the front won’t be included into our site. Since presentations are well suited for the book format, let’s suppress
presenting.Rmd file using the following command. Alternative use point and click navigation in the “File” tab to rename the file.
12.3 Adding section headers
Let’s add a couple of section headers into
about.Rmd files and press “Build” again.
12.4 Bookdown skeleton
