xaringan - Presentation Ninja 幻灯忍者 · 写轮眼

  •    R

An R package for creating slideshows with remark.js through R Markdown. The package name xaringan comes from Sharingan, a dōjutsu in Naruto with two abilities: the "Eye of Insight" and the "Eye of Hypnotism". A presentation ninja should have these basic abilities, and I think remark.js may help you acquire these abilities, even if you are not a member of the Uchiha clan. If you use RStudio, it is easy to get started from the menu File -> New File -> R Markdown -> From Template -> Ninja Presentation, and you will see an R Markdown example. Press the Knit button to compile it, or use the RStudio Addin Infinite Moon Reader to live preview the slides (every time you update and save the Rmd document, the slides will be automatically reloaded; make sure the Rmd document is on focus when you click the addin). Please see the issue #2 if you do not see the template or addin in RStudio.

category-theory-programmers - Notes on category theory in the context of (functional) programming


This document contains notes on category theory in the context of (functional) programming. Originally they were lecture notes for a seminar hosted at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, the national research centre for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands. The main reason for compiling these notes is to provide a way to gain familiarity with concepts of category theory (and other branches of mathematics) that apply in a broad sense to the field of functional programming. The notes are written in Markdown, and pandoc is used to generate the document. Running make inside the doc directory should result in an (updated) pdf, granted that pandoc, pandoc-citeproc and a LaTeX environment are installed.
