We've got a new chapter in the CLI book up AND a new WebR CLI tool for anyone to use to peek at CSV data.

Chapter 10 — https://rud.is/books/webr-cli-book/ch-10.html — introduces skimr, a Node.js WebR wrapper around the excellent {skimr} package.

NPM: https://www.npmjs.com/package/skimr

npm i -g skimr to just use the CLI tool for poking at CSVs.

Today's WPE Drop is late, but better late than never!

I took @mrworthington's request for theme-aid in the plotnine Python world to an extreme and sub’d out the original WPE for today with one that lets you start cranking out (or porting over from ) plotnine ggplot2 themes.

Drop (2023-12-08)

Weekend Project Edition

Preventing Blindness In The Python Ecosystem

It comes with a git repo with a small Python hrbrthemes package you can riff from.

the end of an #rstats era!! congrats @healthandstats on taking over as the new CRAN maintainer of {data.table} with the release of 1.14.10! 🚀🚀🚀

A word of gratitude to Matt Dowle for his long stewardship of the package and best wishes as he moves into an advisory role. What monumental shoes us new maintainers of the package have to fill!

(1/4) Created a detailed tutorial for setting an R dockerized development environment with VScode 💻, Docker 🐳, radian, and the Dev Containers extension 🚀.

The tutorial is a duplicate (with adjustments) of the tutorial I created for setting up a Python dockerized development environment with VScode.

Docker is an amazing tool, but it has some learning curve. The goal of the tutorial is to reduce the entry barrier for learning tools such as Docker for R users.

(2/4) 𝐖𝐡𝐲 𝐑 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐕𝐒𝐜𝐨𝐝𝐞?!?
It's time to address an important question: why use R with VScode when there's already a great IDE available specifically for R - RStudio? The answer lies in Docker. VScode provides built-in support for working with Docker and containers. If you don't work with Docker as part of your development process, then RStudio is the IDE for you.

#rstats #vscode #docker


@ramikrispin@mstdn.social avatar

(3/4) The main advantage (as well as disadvantage) of using VScode is that it's a DIY IDE and allows for a high degree of customization. This means you can tailor your development environment to meet your specific needs.

𝐒𝐜𝐨𝐩𝐞 🎯
The tutorial covers the following topics:
✅ Intro to Docker
✅ Setting and working with the Dev Containers extension
✅ Different approaches for setting up an R development environment
✅ Setting workflow

noob question about

If I'm looking to use Docker to assist with making my research reproducible then should I rely on both Dockerfiles and Dockerimages or one or the other? As I understand it, the Dockerfile specifies how the Docker image will be built but an image can contain the scripts, original data, and correctly versioned software / libraries etc. So why not just / always publish the image?

@Mehrad@fosstodon.org avatar


This is for one of my projects. The idea was to have R v4.1.3 for that project with certain set of packages.

The manifest:


The channel:


To build you should do

guix time-machine --channels="channel.scm" -- package --manifest="manifest.scm" --profile="guix_profile";  

and to activate for your shell, you run:

source 'guix_profile/etc/profile'

Like others, found this one much harder than other Day 1 puzzles: especially with that tricky edge case that wasn't in the examples.

I try to stick with base in my solutions, and it wasn't so elegant for extracting strings.

Day 8 of #AdventOfCode

I rewrote Part 1 so I could use the same code for both parts -- definitely not computationally efficient, but I like it aesthetically.

Considered implementing lcm myself but thought better. I wonder if #Rstats' {pracma} got a bunch of downloads last night?
