Configurable options for website, etc


Yaml package

I’m still banging away at getting the website put together. I had a nice time writing a little R code to generate the dates for different sessions on the syllabus. Needing to define StartSun for the date of the Sunday before the first session made me think that it would be nice to take all the mutable elements (Dates, Authors, Places, etc.) and just define R variables for them that will then be available to the rmarkdown processor. It looks like a super cool way to define all these things will be to use the yaml R package: Check it out!

Starting blogs

I have a little shell function in extras/ that works well for creating the appropriately named rmd files for blogs.
