About the Book

This book walks through the steps of how to generate a Leanpub Course in R.

This book is for anyone with background knowledge in R who is interested in generating the content for their course but doesn't want to worry about tracking files, naming files, consistency, or manually updating things in the future.

Using the `didactr` package developed by John Muschelli, the process of developing courses, identifying compilation issues, and editing content in the future becomes automated and simple. The content in this book will walk you through all the necessary steps to: 

  • generate a Leanpub course on the Leanpub website
  • set up the required file structure 
  • automatically create lessons 
  • add content to lessons
  • automatically generate images from Google Slides
  • generate automated videos
  • upload automated videos to YouTube
  • check courses for compilation errors
  • track updates to courses and automatically re-compile course
