The OpenAPI project attempts to make it easier to connect people with data. This document discusses some of the challenges faced in connecting people with data, and how OpenAPI addresses these challenges. It describes the technical specifications of the OpenAPI architecture, and provides some examples of OpenAPI in action. This document also discusses projects similar to OpenAPI, and how OpenAPI is distinct from these.

The gridGraphics package provides a function, grid.echo(), that can be used to convert a plot drawn with the graphics package to the same result drawn using grid. This provides access to a variety of grid tools for making customisations and additions to the plot that are not possible with the graphics package.
Reproducible documents provide an efficient way to produce reports by automatically generating content from code chunks within the report. The processing of a source document, that contains code chunks, to a final document, that contains automatically-generated content, is typically one way, with the resulting report being read-only. This report describes an experiment that attempts to make the final report document modifiable and attempts to invert the process from final document back to source document so that the modifications to the final document can be efficiently conveyed back to the original author of the report.
