Previously I wrote about Yihui Xie’s xaringan slides. It’s a great package combining R Markdown with the remark.js slide tools and some Yihui Xie ingenuity. I was a fan when it came out and I’m a bigger fan after multiple uses. In my mind, xaringan is perfection in need of only one small personal customization. I wanted one feature: an R Markdown document template that stores some of my typical slide themes combined with a custom stylesheet (CSS) for the Duke University color palette.
