Slidify is not on CRAN and needs to be installed from
github using the
pkgs <- c("slidify", "slidifyLibraries", "rCharts") devtools::install_github(pkgs, "ramnathv")
While the installation process from
github is relatively painless for Mac/Linux/Ubuntu users, Windows users can be made to jump through hoops.
For those of you on Windows that hit a bottleneck, here is an excellent blog post that takes you through an alternate installation process that has been reported to work well.
Given that installation can be time consuming (especially on Windows), I would strongly urge everyone attending the workshop to pre-install packages beforehand.
If you are having installation troubles, you may post it as an issue. Make sure to outline the exact steps you undertook, and also paste the output of your
sessionInfo() so that it would be easier for me to help you debug.
