Website with R Markdown

Question :

I’m trying to create a site to post descriptive analyzes done in R, using the Hugo theme. However, after creating a .rmd post where I read a .csv file and do a series of reviews. I get this error when using the serve_site () or build_site () command

Warning message:
In readLines(if (is.character(input2)) { :
  entrada inválida na conexão de entrada '2018-09-12-hello-world.Rmd'

The file alex_turner.csv exists and is inside a ‘date’ folder in the project root. Does anyone know what can cause this error and how can I resolve it?

Answer :

Apparently your code is correct. I ran it on my PC (it’s a Mac, actually), and at least the special characters (like in music, for example), everything worked out:




  • Iopenedthecontent/2018-09-12-hello-world.RmdfileinRStudio

  • IwenttothemenuFile>SavewithEncoding...andchosetheUTF-8option

  • IclosedRStudioandreopened

  • Iranthecommandblogdown::build_site();blogdown::serve_site()andtheresultwasasfollows:

  • Note that now the special characters appear all (songs turned into songs, as they should be).

    As you use Windows, my solution is that every file you create in RStudio will now be saved through the Save with Encoding... option with the UTF-8 option. For some reason I do not know, Windows still does not use UTF-8 as a character encoding, which causes a lot of bizarre problems when other programs, such as Hugo, try to access text files made in a Windows editor. >
