Blogdown is a R package to generate static websites based on R Markdown and Hugo, a static web engine. To be honest: It’s fantastic! I’ve been using Wordpress for a while, with all that hassle of copy-pasting html into the wp text editor, adjusting images… Not to mention all the fuzz that goes along when using htmlwidgets. That blog-agony is all over with blogdown. My take-ways Must read: Blogdown online book: definitely read the first 3 chapters and the appendix!
