An Introduction to Slumdown
Tutorial part 1: Getting started 21 Apr 2019
A sort summary of how to get started using the slumdown package. It discusses how to install the package, set up a new site, and where to look for initial configuration.
Tutorial part 2: Writing a post 20 Apr 2019
Like any blogdown post, a slumdown post is written in R Markdown, and uses a few custom fields in the YAML field. This tutorial provides an illustration of how different kinds of content are displayed.
Tutorial part 3: Colour palettes in slumdown 19 Apr 2019
The main reason I wrote slumdown (besides boredom) was to make it easy to include user-defined colours palettes in blogdown, and expose those palettes to R so that (for instance) plots can be drawn in a style that matches the blog style. This tutorial introduces this palette system.
Tutorial part 4: Customising the header 18 Apr 2019
Slumdown allows the user to control the background image at the top of each post, the profile image overlaid in the middle of that image, and the caption attached to the header image. This post describes how this is done.
Tutorial part 5: Deploying to GitHub 17 Apr 2019
This tutorial describes how to deploy a site. Blogdown sites are very often deployed to Netlify, but I have a personal bias to use GitHub Pages, so slumdown is configured by default to use GitHub.
Tutorial part 6: Some notes on Hugo 16 Apr 2019
Eventually, this will be an explanation of how the Hugo slum theme is designed, possibly accompanied by a brief tutorial on Hugo.
A kunoichi page 15 Apr 2019
A simple project page illustrating how user-defined themes in slumdown can be used as the basis of individual pages and ggplot2 figures. It doesn’t do very much.
