This is a preliminary version of the introduction to postr. Please go to my Github repo postr for the latest updates.
This package is modified from kuleuven-template, where you can see the requirements before using this package. Here I picked out the instruction for Windows users as follows.
- Install a LaTeX distribution, e.g. MiKTeX. For Chinese users CTeX is highly recommended.
- Install Texmaker
- Install R
- Install RStudio
- Install Python 2
- Install Python filter support for Pandoc:
on a Windows command prompt, type
pip install pandocfilters
- Install SumatraPDF for auto-refresh of PDF previews
Afterwards, add the Python directory to the system PATH variable.
Run the following codes, and you will get some files (e.g.
poster.Rmd) and folders in your working directory.
devtools::install_github("pzhaonet/postr") getwd() # this is your working directory. run setwd() to change it. postr::postr()
poster.Rmd in RStudio, and press
ctrl+shift+k to compile it. You will get a file named
poster.pdf in your working directory. Open it with any pdf viewer (SumatraPDF, Adebe Reader, whatever).
If the bibliography section is not displayed in the poster, knitr
poster.Rmd once more.
A lot of annoying files and folders produced? You can remove them by running (Caution! You won’t find them in your recycle bin!):
Still being developed. Feel free to give your feedback to me!
