Source: THE JUMPING RIVERS BLOG During my econ PhD I learned a lot about frequentist statistics. Alas, my training of Bayesian statistics was limited. Three years ago, I joined @MathPolResearch and started delving into this whole new world. Two weeks ago, thanks to @jumping_uk, I was able to attend StanCon. This was an amazing experience, which allowed me to meet some great people and learn a lot from them. These are my highlights from the conference:
Why? Until now I’ve been sending emails with R using my Gmail account. This works, but configuring mailR for the first time is always a pain. A few days ago @marked told me about mailgun and how to use it. The great thing is that you only need httr to use it. How? Using @marked’s gist as my base, I created a tiny R package to make using mailgun even easier:
Update 03/30/2019: IMWatson is working again! I just discovered IBM’s Watson conversation, and this free online course shows you how to build your first chatbot. Alas, the course did not cover how to use the API with R. I think chatbots can be very useful when creating shiny apps. Therefore, I started working on IMWatson. The goal of this R package is to make integrating a chatbot into a shiny app as easy as possible.
In order to get mailR I had to create a symlink with: #ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so /usr/lib/R/lib/libjvm.so ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-amd64/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so /usr/lib To make life easier, I created a wrapper around it using secret to store my password. To send an email notification, I just have to run: IMSecrets::email_me()
SSH into my synology and run: sudo su docker run -d -p 8787:8787 -e USER=<username> -e PASSWORD=<password> andrewheiss/tidyverse-rstanarm nano /usr/syno/share/nginx/Portal.mustache add the following to the Location section: proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade"; proxy_read_timeout 86400; run: sudo synoservicecfg --restart nginx
Goal: Create multiple, and trackable, short URLs that point to the same place Tools: YOURLS, R Steps: Installing YOURLS is very easy, particularly if you do it with docker. A container for the database: docker run --name yourlsmysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=mysecretpassword -d mysql A container for YOURLS: docker run --name yourls -d \ -e YOURL_USER='admin' \ -e YOURL_PASSWORD='mysecretpassword' \ -e YOURLS_SITE='http://sh.tld' \ --link yourlsmysql:mysql bios/docker-yourls To use the web-interface, you need to go to your site.
Yihui’s blogdown package is awesome! To create this site i just had to run: blogdown::new_site(theme = "vimux/mainroad") and to create this post just blogdown::new_post(title = "Hello World!")
