Tonight I will give a talk at the Cambridge R user group about googleVis. Following my good experience with knitr and RStudio to create interactive reports, I thought that I should try to create the slides in the same way as well.

Christopher Gandrud’s recent post reminded me of deck.js, a JavaScript library for interactive html slides, which I have used in the past, but as Christopher experienced, it is currently not that straightforward to use with R and `knitr`

.

Thus, I decided to try slidy in combination with knitr and pandoc. And it worked nicely.

I used RStudio again to edit my Rmd-file and `knitr`

to generate the Markdown md-file output. Following this I run `pandoc`

on the command line to convert the md-file into a single `slidy`

html-file:

```
```

`pandoc -s -S -i -t slidy --mathjax Cambridge_R_googleVis_with_knitr_and_RStudio_May_2012.md -o Cambridge_R_googleVis_with_knitr_and_RStudio_May_2012.html`

```
```

Et volià, here is the result:
