Generating a Gallery of Visualizations for a Static Website (using R)

While I was browsing the website of fellow R blogger Ryo Nakagawara1, I was intrigued by his “Visualizations” page. The concept of creating an online “portfolio” is not novel 2, but I hadn’t thought to make one as a compilation of my own work (from blog posts)… until now 😄. The code that follows shows how I generated the body of my visualization portfolio page. The task is achieved in a couple of steps.

(Yet Another) Migration to Blogdown Post

As of today, I’ve officially made the jump to using the R package blogdown (which uses the Hugo static-site generator under the hood) for my personal website. Previously, I had been using WordPress for my blogging purposes. In sync with the change in platform, I’m changing the name of this site from “Number Sense” (www.numbersense.org) to something involving my name (Tony ElHabr). Nonetheless, my original intents to write about math, sports, and data-related things have not changed.
