Auto-Deploying Documentation

Steph Locke has more on documentation auto-deployment (and the original Curated SQL entry):

So I went through and converted everything in my Rtraining to this and realised it messed up my slide decks – it’s been so long since I had built a pure knitr solution that I forgot that rmarkdown::render != knitr::knit. For my slidedecks, if I wanted the ioslides_presentation format, I needed to use rmarkdown::render. The problem with that has been the relative references to the CSS and the logo.

To solve this I read about the custom render formats capability and created afunction that produces an ioslides_presentation but with my CSS preloaded by default. This now means that I can produce slides with better file referencing.

Steph has put up all of her R-related presentations and documentation as well, so check that out.
