This is (roughly) the lightning talk I gave in useR2011. If you are a reader of R-bloggers.com then this talk is not likely to tell you anything new. However, if you have a friend, college or student who is a new useRs of R, this talk will offer him a decent introduction to what the R blogosphere is all about.
The talk is a call for people of the R community to participate more in reading, writing and interacting with blogs.
Today I was informed of (what I believe is) a better the best WordPress plugin for R syntax highlighting called WP-CodeBox. This plugin doesn’t require any hacks to make it work (as opposed to the WP-Syntax plugin, which I wrote about in the past). WP-CodeBox can be downloaded and installed on a WordPress by searching for it in the “Add New” section in the plugins menu.
WP-CodeBox provides some nice features (some AJAX based) to the display of the code in the post:
The code box in the post can now be folded (top right of the code box) so the code can be hidden so to not clutter the post (if the code is too long)
The code box is added with another button (top left of the code box) which allows the reader to see the code in a new window – so to easily enable a copy paste of the code.
The options of the plugin allows automatic row numbering of the code, control over “tab” length and some other features.
