Benefits of 'dynamic docs'
By “Dynamic Documents” I mean papers/projects built with R-markdown or JuPyTer notebooks (the two most prominent tools) that
- do and report the data analysis (as well as math/simulations) in the same space that the results and discussion are presented (with ‘code blocks’ hidden)
- a key benefit is you can track exactly what is being reported and how it was constructed;
- other advantages of these formats (over, e.g., pdf) include convenient ‘folding blocks’, margin comments or hoverable notes and links, and integrating interactive tools
Some quick examples from my own work in progress (but other people have done it much better)
