knitr, github, and a new phase for the lab notebook

I have recently modified the basic workflow of my lab notebook since discovering knitr.

I love TikZ in LaTeX and I use it exclusively when writing figures for my papers. I also use the tikzDevice package to convert all figures I create in R to TikZ code, so the font used in the text and figures is the same (and having your R figures in Ti...

Finally, Four Backticks on Github

Finally, Four Backticks on Github

It is always the little things… Over the years, I have been totally happy with almost everything about Github, but I have also been waiting for one little thing: I wish we could enclose text that contains N backticks with a pair of N + 1 backticks in Github issues/comments, i.e., ```` ```{r, echo=TRUE} 1 + 1 ``` ```` so that we could show a...

When in Doubt, Upgrade

I have said this many times in several Github issues and it is also the very first FAQ of knitr.
