Creating WordPress blog posts with RMarkdown

R Markdown

This blog post is written as an R Markdown document. Markdown is a simple formatting syntax for authoring HTML, PDF, and MS Word documents. For more details on using R Markdown see

When you click the Knit button a document will be generated that includes both content as well as the output of any embedded R code chunks within the document.

I’ve use the RWordPress package and the instructions from this blog post:

#activate the necessary libraries

# tell RWordPress how to set the user name, password, and URL for your WordPress site.
options(WordPressLogin = c(n8thangreen20 = 'PASSWORD'),
        WordPressURL = '')

# tell knitr to create the html code and upload it to your WordPress site
knit2wp(input = "postname.Rmd",
        title = "posttitle",
        publish = FALSE,
        action = "newPost")
