2016-13 ‘DOM’ Version 0.3

This report describes changes in version 0.3 of the ‘DOM’ package for R. This version represents a major refactoring of the package code, including its user-facing API. These changes were made in order to facilitate the addition of new features to the package, which in this version include: a new way to refer to DOM nodes from R code that allows building web page content “off screen”; and greater flexibility in how requests are made from R to a web browser and vice versa.

2014-02 Invertible Reproducible Documents

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.
