narritive, R workshop, RMarkdown
So far, most of what you’ve done in R has been with R scripts, which is perfectly fine. But sometimes if you’re working on a particular project you might end up with one very long script. You might add some structure to the script using headers, and you can add comments to explain what code does, but after a while it can get unwieldy because there’s no narrative in your script. You forget why do did what you did and what things you learned from it. For many of my projects, I have an accompanying file where keep all my notes, kind of like a journal of what I did that day. But even then, there’s often a disconnect between what’s in my notes and what is in my R script.
