Top 10 things that suck about Sweave

December 1, 2010 | Mario Pineda-Krch

People rave about Sweave and the literate programing paradigm and I am guilty as charged. I speak Sweave, I think Sweave, I dream Sweave. As a matter of fact my default mode of operation is Sweave and anything else is an … Continue reading → [Read more...]

Sorting out Sweave in Eclipse/StatET

November 29, 2010 | Luke Miller

Using Sweave to produce pretty-looking documentation for R is awfully handy. It takes a little tweaking to get set up in Eclipse and StatET though. I followed the information in Jeromy Anglim’s webpage to originally get Sweave set up. The followi... [Read more...]

How to Start Using (pgf)Sweave in LyX in One Minute

October 30, 2010 | Yihui Xie

regor Gorjanc published an interesting article “Using Sweave with LyX” in R News in 2008, which (I believe) makes it much easier to use Sweave. I use command-line tools a lot every day, but I am still “GUI-addicted”. (I don’t want to comment more about Microsoft Word here.) LyX is ... [Read more...]

Font Families for the R PDF Device

March 24, 2010 | Yihui Xie

otivated by the excellent R package pgfSweave, I begin to notice the font families in my graphs when writing Sweave documents. The default font family for PDF graphs is Helvetica, which is, in most cases (I think), inconsistent with the LaTeX font styles. Some common font families are listed in ?... [Read more...]

Press Enter in LyX Sweave as You Wish

February 18, 2010 | Yihui Xie

or a long time I’ve been wondering why we are not able to use Enter in the LyX Scrap environment which was set up by Gregor Gorjanc for Sweave. Two weeks ago, I (finally!) could not help asking Gregor about this issue, as I’m using “LyX + Sweave” more ...

Versions of Sweave.sh

January 16, 2009 | Gregor Gorjanc

There are now many places where one can find "my" Sweave.sh shell script for running Sweave and post processing with LaTeX directly from the command line. I published first version of Sweave.sh here (web page of the department). Later I moved my pages ...
