Tutorial part 1: Getting started 10 Jun 2020
The aim of caladown is to provide a simple Hugo template suitable for R users who want to build a website or start a blog, and is designed to be compatible with both blogdown and hugodown. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to get started. The assumed reader for this tutorial is an R user who has some experience with R Markdown, but is unfamiliar with blogdown, hugodown, or Hugo itself.
Tutorial part 2: Customising posts 08 Jun 2020
In general I want to use a consistent palette and header across a site, but there are occasions where I might want a single page to use a different style. I don’t want to have to edit with low level settings to do that. In the second part of the tutorial I discuss this kind of customisation.
Tutorial part 3: Deploying the site 07 Jun 2020
The usual advice for deploying a blogdown or hugodown site is to deploy to Netlify rather than GitHub Pages, because there are a few peculiarities to GitHub Pages that can make it difficult. The third part of the tutorial walks you through both versions.
