I recently needed a way to break my large data frame into
smaller subgroups for batch processing. Sounds easy enough. Thanks to Stack Overflow, I learned
that there is the R command split(). Re-using the example from the first answer
in the Stack Overflow post:
There has been a few odd times that I’ve needed to create a custom color bar for my figures.
A really simple solution in R can be found here. Although running this in R is easy enough,
one idea I had was to turn this task into an interactive Shiny app. So here it is… introducing
Colour Bar Builder, a Shiny app for creating custom colour bars interactively.
A demo is available on shinyapps.io.
Recently I decided to update my personal website using Github Pages and Jekyll. One big selling point was that I could use Markdown to create my pages and posts. I was
inspired by this blog post,
which was a great starting point for me to dive into Jekyll. Here, I
write about my own experience getting started. Rather than writing a comprehensive how-to post,
I’ll just point to online resources that I learned from and highlight some
troubleshooting items that I encountered.
