This post provides technical details about the making of my book “Displaying time series, spatial, and space-time data with R”, a fully reproducible book including hundreds of code chunks and graphics. Hopefully this post will help others when writing a reproducible document.
Among the tools that can create reproducible documents with R, I decided to use these gems of open-source software:
- GNU Emacs as development environment.
- R (of course!) with Emacs Speaks Statistics.
- org-mode for authoring text and code.
- LaTeX with AUCTeX to produce the final document.
