R Package Maintenance

I just got an automated email from the developers of the Tidyverse that they are updating the package tibble such that it will break the code in my package colorednoise, which depends on it. Part of being a package maintainer is updating your package so it won’t break when other packages do. So I thought I would document how I did this in a blog post. First, I carefully read the email to see which tests were failing.

Creating a scientific manuscript in LaTeX

I’m submitting a manuscript as a .tex file for the first time, so I thought I’d document my workflow for anyone else who wants to give it a try. This is meant for people who know the very basics of LaTeX but are essentially beginners (much like myself.) I habitually write my manuscripts in Scrivener, which allows me to organize my thoughts into the structure of a scientific paper. Scrivener screenshot
