My first RPub

I’m quite impressed with Rstudio, an integrated development environment (IDE) for R. If you haven’t tried it yet, I strongly recommend you to do so, you won’t regret it.

One of the great things about RStudio is that it allows you to work with R markdown which is great for creating reproducible web reports with a fairly simple syntax.

Although I’ve been playing with RStudio and R markdown for a while, I recently decided to try RPubs, a service provided by RStudio in which you can publish documents on the web with the click of a button.

Anyway, I just wanted to share my first Rpub about visualizing hurricane trajectories in North America. For those readers interested in the behind the scenes issues, here’s the code I used in RStudio to create the markdown file for my first RPub.
