I’ve tried ioslide in rmarkdown before. And xaringan today. It looks pretty neat. Here is my quick note of what I have learned
My take on MS ppt / libreoffice impress / ioslide / remark(xaringan):
MS ppt / libreoffice impress, I’ll have to spend lots of time aligning elements instead of focusing on the content.
ioslide: neat, but inserting pictures is a pain in the ass. I end up editing the picture resolutions/ inserting modifying code into it. which is contrary to the reason I went for rmarkdown in the first place: care less about the format.
xaringan: better so far, but a bit complicated than ioslide. I’ll give it a try next time and see if there’s new problems
---to separate pages
--to inherit content in previous page, for incrementally adding points
class property: align the entire slides, including
layout property is a bit tricky, avoid it.
- exoprting it to a pdf has some issues, use dectape.js as :
system("phantomjs decktape.js slides.html slides.pdf")
- figures are rendered greater than ioslide1
- column by column:
--- .pull-left[some stuff] .pull-right[some other stuff] ---
blablabla<sup>*</sup> .footnote[[*] Not really. See next page.]
- alignment element
- pics and text works too.
.right[![Right-aligned image](https://i.imgur.com/y4kNQKa.jpg)] .right[Right-aligned text]
- press h for an reminder
hmmm I’ll come back if I run into any issues.
it does not fit into the slide↩
