Introduction My Use Case Workflow Building the Docker image Uploading the docker image to Docker Hub Setting up Travis to use the Docker image References Introduction The below summarize the workflow I’ve converged on, after reading through various tutorials on Docker, examples, etc.
If you’re here, I presume you have some interest in R package development and/or using Docker, which is a tool for containerizing an environment for running software.
For my rEDM package, I’ve been using the pkgdown package to build a website comprising all the documentation and vignettes, for easy reference from a web browser.
The normal workflow for this is something like:
Make updates to the package. Run pkgdown::build_site() to generate the website files into a docs folder. Commit changes and upload to GitHub. Use GitHub Pages, configured to source the files from the docs folder on the master branch.
