From the resource:
Want to build a website right in RStudio? blogdown is an R package that allows you to create websites from R markdown files using Hugo, an open-source static site generator written in Go and known for being incredibly fast.
I started the process by reading through the first few chapters of the blogdown text. It has a ton of great information, and Yihui, Amber, and Alison make the information very accessible. I dug into the installation chapter, it was also helpful for me to follow Alison Presmanes Hill’s post.
