Some random thoughts

I’ve changed the website design. For the last 2 years this site was relying on the Jekyll framework using the Minimal Mistakes template. Recently, I started to dive deeper in Rstudio, rmarkdown and the tidyverse ecosystem. Few days ago I discovered in Twitter about the new Yihui Xie’s package called blogdown that allows to create static websites using Rmarkdown and Hugo. After a quick read of the Xie’s book about this package I decided to change this website from Markdown+Jekyll to Rmarkdown+Blogdown+Hugo.
