'R' 'Markdown' Themes for 'UIUC' Documents and Presentations

A set of custom 'R' 'Markdown' templates for documents and presentations with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) color scheme and identity standards.

UIUC Themes for R Markdown (uiucthemes)

The uiucthemes package includes my collection of UIUC themed templates.

Presently, only the UIUC Beamer Theme is embedded within the package.

Within an RMarkdown file, add the following:

Note: You will also need to save the ilogo.pdf file to the folder with the RMarkdown document. The need for this is negated under the instructions given at the end (RStudio creation & using rmarkdown::draft().

This generates:

To use uiucthemes from RStudio:

  1. Install the latest RStudio.

  2. Install the uiucthemes package:

  1. Use the New R Markdown dialog to create an article from one of the templates:

  1. Install pandoc using the instructions for your platform.

  2. Install the rmarkdown and uiucthemes packages:

  1. Use the rmarkdown::draft function to create articles:
rmarkdown::draft("slide_deck.Rmd", template = "uiuc_beamer", package = "uiucthemes")
