Presentation Ninja with R and xaringan

In late 2016, Yihui discovered remark.js (Bang 2018) and loved it at the first sight. A few weeks later in the R Markdown ecosystem (Allaire et al. 2018), an R package was born and named xaringan (Xie 2018b), which nobody knows how to pronounce (including Yihui himself, because it was adapted from the Japanese manga series Naruto by Kishimoto (2007)). Anyway, this package has gained some popularity, and some CSS ninja have started contributing themes to it. One day, Yihui was thinking about creating a gallery for existing themes in xaringan. After a few replies in the Github issue, he realized there might be enough topics on xaringan for a short book. Accidentally, he invented a new development model for writing books: the Github-issue-driven book development.

Authors

We are a team of shinobi and kunoichi who wish to share the fun and secrets of the xaringan package with you.

Emi

Lead author, and the ninja theme author

Emi laid out the first sketch of the book, which made Yihui believe that the book had been half-done.

Joseph Casillas

Contributor of xaringan

“Count me in,” replied Joseph when Yihui asked who wanted to co-author the book.

Eric Nantz

Host of the R Podcast

Yihui is eager to know how much Eric’s writing is better than his magnetic voice.

Yihui Xie

Main author of xaringan

Yihui knows a bit about R/HTML/CSS/JS and wrote knitr (Xie 2018a), which became a cornerstone of R Markdown.

All pictures above are from the authors’ Github profiles. This poster was created via the R package pagedown.

Motivation

There are many secrets about xaringan, knitr, and R Markdown to be revealed
