sandpaper 0.10.8

MISC

  • schedule/syllabus timings are now displayed as XXh XXm to clarify the scope of the timing (requested: @tobyhodges, #361; fixed @zkamvar, #363).
  • Documentation for automated pull requests updated to reflect bots should have public_repo scope.

BUG FIX

  • A bug where the index page title was the same for both instructor and learner view has been fixed (reported: @tobyhodges, #361; fixed @zkamvar, #366)

sandpaper 0.10.7

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • pandoc is now set to use the default version for r-lib/setup-pandoc (at the time of this update, it is version 2.19.2.
  • Workflows that update workflows and packages will now push to single branches called update/workflows and update/packages, respectively. This will avoid the issue with #350
  • Workflows no longer use the deprecated set-output command (reported: @zkamvar, #349; fixed @zkamvar, #356)
  • Versions of external actions have been updated to include actions/core@1.10.0

sandpaper 0.10.6

NEW FEATURES

  • Interactive functions to modify lesson structure (move_episode(), set_episode(), etc) will now display a message if the user does not specify write = TRUE. This message will present a command that, when executed, will make the desired change (requested: @tobyhodges, #345, fixed: @zkamvar, #352)

sandpaper 0.10.5

MISC

  • The the source config parameter will have the trailing / trimmed off when passed to the site so that the URL does not have two consectutive slashes.

sandpaper 0.10.4

BUG FIX

  • renv/sandbox no longer required in .gitignore. A new bug introduced in 0.10.2 caused all lessons built before 0.10.2 to fail when rebuilt on CI. This was due to the assumption that the .gitignore item renv/sandbox was strictly necessary with no clear method to automatically update a file like this (reported: @zkamvar, #347; fixed: @zkamvar, #348).

sandpaper 0.10.3

BUG FIX

  • An accidental commit of sandpaper-version.txt in version 0.8.0 inside the workflow templates folder was causing workflow update script to create pull requests for the workflows every week when they should have been much less frequent (the irony of this commit is that it will trigger another pull request) (fixed: @zkamvar, #346).

sandpaper 0.10.2

BUG FIX

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • The deploy-aws.yaml workflow has been removed as plans for its use is relegated to the beta stage of the workbench.

sandpaper 0.10.1

NEW FEATURES

  • If the index.md (or Rmd) file has a title YAML element, this will take precedence over the default title of “Summary and Setup”. (requested: @SaraMorsy, #339; fixed: @zkamvar #342)

BUG FIX

  • Titles in navigation bar now have Markdown parsed correctly.

sandpaper 0.10.0

NEW FEATURES

  • The default behavior of create_episode() and create_lesson() is to use episodes without numbered prefixes and will now automatically add episodes to the schedule (requested: @tobyhodges, #330; fixed @zkamvar, #333)
  • New function move_episode() allows the lesson contributor to move an episode in the schedule (requested: @tobyhodges, #330, fixed: @zkamvar, #333)
  • New functions draft_lesson_md() and draft_lesson_rmd() perform the task of create_lesson(add = FALSE).
  • Helper function strip_prefix() will automatically strip the prefixes for all episodes in the schedule.

BUG FIX

  • get_config() now has a default path argument.
  • A bug where anchors for callout headings with generic names (e.g. “discussion” or “keypoints”) were missing was fixed.

sandpaper 0.9.6

BUG FIX

  • A minor bug is fixed. It originated from the most recent update in {cli} where newlines in a span are collapsed. This will fix (reported: @zkamvar, #336; fixed @zkamvar #337)

DEPENDENCIES

  • The minimum version of CLI has been updated to version 3.4.0

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

sandpaper 0.9.5

sandpaper 0.9.4

  • The CLI styling of an important message about {renv} has been fixed to be more readable (reported: @zkamvar, #331; fixed: @zkamvar, #332).
  • The bioschemas metadata version has been updated to 1.0 (reported: @zkamvar, #329; fixed @zkamvar, #332).

sandpaper 0.9.3

MISC

  • A test that was failing on the R-universe has been skipped
  • documentation has been updated to detail the expected and optional values in config.yaml in set_dropdown()
  • The template for the code of conduct has been updated to reflect our style guide

sandpaper 0.9.2

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • The version of the s3-sync action has been corrected. This only affects lessons that deploy to AWS

sandpaper 0.9.1

MISC

sandpaper 0.9.0

MISC

  • set_config() gains the option create, which will create new variables if they do not exist.

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • A new workflow called deploy-aws.yaml has been created to deploy a site to AWS when the right secrets from AWS are available. Because this workflow does not affect normal use, I am relegating this to a patch release.

sandpaper 0.8.0

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • A new workflow called pr-preflight.yaml has been created to perform a quick pre-flight check on the pull request to ensure that there is no malicious activity on the lesson itself, which may look like modifying both workflow and lesson files in the same pull request. For lessons that transition to the workbench from styles in official and community-developed lessons, an extra check is added that will validate the branch of the incoming PR does not contain invalid commits.

  • Pull Request workflows have been simplified.

sandpaper 0.7.1

BUG FIX

  • A bug where fail_on_error defaulted to true has been fixed. This will default to false if they key is not present in config.yaml (#314, @zkamvar).

sandpaper 0.7.0

NEW FEATURE

  • Placing fail_on_error: true in config.yaml will set the global chunk option error = FALSE for R Markdown documents, meaning that if an error is produced from a chunk, the build will fail unless that chunk explicitly uses the error = TRUE option. (requested: #306 by @davidps, implemented: #310 by @zkamvar)

sandpaper 0.6.2

BUG FIX

sandpaper 0.6.1

MISC

  • the config.yaml template has been updated to default to incubator lessons and has more helpful information included about formatting (@tobyhodges, #302)

sandpaper 0.6.0

NEW FEATURES

  • create_lesson() gains the rmd parameter, which is a logical indicator that the lesson should use R Markdown (TRUE by default). When this is FALSE, a markdown lesson is created and no package cache is initialised.
  • create_episode() gains the ext parameter, which allows users to create plain markdown episodes if they do not need R Markdown functionality (see https://github.com/carpentries/sandpaper/issues/296).

BUG FIX

MISC

  • The internal check_episode() function has been removed as it was over- engineered with marginal value.

sandpaper 0.5.8

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Running the main workflow from GitHub’s actions tab now uses a checkbox to indicate if the markdown file cache should be cleared.
  • The README file for the workflows no longer contains a link to an image that does not exist.

sandpaper 0.5.7

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

sandpaper 0.5.6

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Pull requests will now report on elements of the lesson that do not pass checks.

sandpaper 0.5.5

MISC

  • New YAML items can now be added at-will and will be available to varnish in a {{#yaml}} context.
  • internal function set_dropdown() will preserve the yaml items that are not explicitly coded in the config menu.

sandpaper 0.5.4

BUG FIX

sandpaper 0.5.3

BUG FIX

  • Episodes with ampersands in their titles no longer break the aggregate page building.

sandpaper 0.5.2

TEMPORARY BUG FIX

sandpaper 0.5.1

NEW FEATURES

  • The sidebar now enumerates episodes so it is easier for instructors and learners to indicate episode by number instead of by name (suggested by @fiveop in #276). (@zkamvar, #277)

NEW SUGGESTS

  • {mockr} is now a suggested package (aka soft-dependency) to facilitate testing functions that do not need an entire lesson set up to test their functionality

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • setup-r and setup-pandoc actions have been pinned to version 2
  • setup-r action now uses the default R installation on GitHub’s runner, which decreases build times by ~ 1 minute.
  • All R actions will use the RStudio Package Manager, which should avoid overly lengthy build times.
  • explicit permissions have been set for the deploy workflow (@zkamvar, #279)

sandpaper 0.5.0

NEW FEATURES

  • images.html is built with internal function build_images(), collecting all images and displaying alt text for non-screen reader users (while marking those paragraphs as aria-hidden so that screen reader users do not have it read twice).
  • instructor-notes.html is now built with the internal function build_instructor_notes() and now collects instructor notes from the episodes in a section called aggregate-instructor-notes.

MISC

  • The internal build_agg_page() has a new argument, append, which takes an XPath expression of what node should have children appended. Defaults to "self::node()". An example of alternate usage is in build_instructor_notes(), which uses section[@id='aggregate-instructor-notes'].

sandpaper 0.4.1

MISC

  • The All in One page and Keypoints page have been redesigned. These now both use the underlying internal function build_agg_page() (build aggregate page). This allows slow templating processes to be performed once and cached instead of repeated for each page. It provides a framework for future aggregate pages (such as figures, instructor notes, glossary, etc).
  • A message is now printed when Keypoints and All-in-one pages are written to disk if quiet = FALSE.

sandpaper 0.4.0

NEW FEATURES

  • An all-in-one page is now available for lesson websites at /aio.html and instructor/aio.html.

MISC

  • Provisioning of the global lesson element cache (metadata, AST, and global variables for varnish) is now all executed via this_lesson(), which is run during validate_lesson(). This simplifies the setup a bit, and provides the same method of cache invalidation (checking git outputs) for all of these elements

sandpaper 0.3.6

MISC

  • custom sandpaper and varnish engines will be properly linked to the footer of the lesson pages via this version and varnish 0.1.8.
  • testthat tests have been updated.
  • a diagram in the vingettes has been updated to reflect the parallel roles of sandpaper and pegboard to a lesson.

sandpaper 0.3.5

BUG FIX

  • keypoints.html is now rendered as key-points.html to fix navigation error with varnish.

sandpaper 0.3.4

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

sandpaper 0.3.3

BUG FIXES

  • Links from the index page to the setup or any episodes now correctly render
  • Links to the setup page now redirect to index.html#setup (@zkamvar, #262)
  • The setup page is now included in the instructor view after the schedule
  • The setup in the index page is now a separate section with the id “setup”
  • The schedule in the instructor index page is now in a separate section with the id “schedule”

DEPENDENCIES

  • The minimum version of {varnish} required is now 0.1.5

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • A small bug in the update cache workflow that caused a silent error with no detremental effect was fixed (@zkamvar, #250)

sandpaper 0.3.2

DEPENDENCIES

  • The minimum version for {pegboard} should be at least 0.2.3 to accomodate div validation (@sstevens2, #259)
  • The minimuim version for {varnish} should be at least 1.5.0.

sandpaper 0.3.1

BUG FIXES

  • Documents with footnotes without trailing newlines will now parse the external links correctly by adding a newline between the document and the links.

sandpaper 0.3.0

NEW FEATURES

  • Common links for markdown lessons can be included via a file at the top of the lesson called links.md. If this file exists, it will be concatenated on each markdown file before it is rendered to HTML. Thanks to @sstevens2 for bringing this feature up (@zkamvar, #257)
  • create_lesson() now includes links.md in main directory.
  • A new help page called ?sandpaper.options provides documentation on the global options used in a sandpaper lesson (subject to change).

sandpaper 0.2.0

NEW FEATURES

DEPENDENCIES

  • the minimum pegboard version is now 0.2.0

BUG FIXES

  • internal function this_lesson() will now properly invalidate and reset if there is a change in commit (e.g. the lesson to build has switched).

sandpaper 0.1.6

BUG FIX

sandpaper 0.1.5

INTERNAL

  • metadata is now processed more consistently across page types, which will first and foremost reduces some of the code complexity, and second, allows for more rapid development of future page types. In some instances, this will result in a marginal improvement of build times, but it will not likely be noticable.

sandpaper 0.1.4

BUG FIX

sandpaper 0.1.3

MISC

  • Clarify license information to specify the copyright is held by The Carpentries

sandpaper 0.1.2

BUG FIX

  • invalid sitemaps have been fixed to have the correct namespace and include a slash in the site name.
  • a test requring pandoc 2.11 has been suppressed on systems without that version of pandoc.

sandpaper 0.1.1

DEPENDENCIES

METADATA

  • The metadata included in the lesson footer now correctly states the @type as TrainingMaterial (@zkamvar, #236)
  • A basic sitemap is now constructed for the lesson (@zkamvar, #243)

BUG FIX

  • Empty pages will no longer throw errors in rendering and they will not be included in the output (@zkamvar, #237)

sandpaper 0.1.0

BUG FIXES

  • the internal function render_html() now passes the --preserve-tabs parameter to prevent pandoc from removing educationally relevant information from the lessons.
  • when rebuilding a lesson with ci_deploy(..., rebuild = TRUE), detritus in the lesson site will be cleaned (@zkamvar, #91).

BREAKING CHANGES

  • Add support for the updated frontend in {varnish}. This means that you will need varnish 0.1.0 installed in order to use this update. This change includes modifications to the lua filters along with the general handling of the HTML elements which means that older versions of varnish will cease to work.
  • code blocks will no longer contain package links. While the links may have been handy for sighted users to explore documentation, these may represent objstructions for users who rely on screen-readers.

INSTRUCTOR VIEW

There are now two views of the lesson: instructor view and learner view. The biggest difference is that instructor view gains the instructor-note sections (if they exist).

  • Static pages for each view. This means that you can toggle between the pages without needing javascript.
  • Removed timings on the learner view (to avoid discouraging our learners)
  • Setup page replaces the schedule on the index page
  • There are additional buttons included on the instructor view that do not yet work, but will work at some point!

The only downside at the moment is that building the lesson takes a bit longer due to the fact that we now have to render two pages for each change.

A persistant sidebar with links for the main content of the lesson will be present on all pages of the lesson. The navigation bar will prioritise items used most frequently by the respective audiences:

  • Learners: Key Points, Glossary, Learner Profiles, “Additional Information” (dropdown)
  • Instructors: Key Points, Instructor Notes, Extract All Images, “More” (dropdown)

MISC

  • The build database now gains a “date” column which will indicate the date the file was last rendered to markdown. This allows the “last updated on” to better reflect the state of the contents from the rendered files.
  • The default configuration file now includes a keywords: item where you can place a comma-separated list of keywords to include in the site’s metadata
  • The configuration file now also includes an example of what provisioned navigation looks like
  • The default episode template now refers to the correct documentation links and provides examples of how to represent code blocks that are not evaluated.
  • The setup page now contains a structured example setup page that shows how to provide dropdown menus for different operating systems (@zkamvar, #28).
  • If the user does not have a github PAT and we can not detect the name of the repository from the git setup, then the source goes to an example.com link.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9075

BUG FIX

  • Episodes with missing timing metadata will no longer fail if they also contain questions and objectives blocks. (@zkamvar, #222).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9074

BUG FIX

  • Internal function renv_cache_available() continues to work with {renv} 0.15.0. This new version of {renv} changed the default value of a configuration setting for the system cache from a logical to NULL, which casued a logical operation to fail. (@zkamvar, #223)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9073

DEPENDENCY UPDATE

  • {renv} is pinned to version 0.14.0 as version 0.13.2 would throw an error when checking for consent.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9072

NEW FUNCTION

  • serve() now allows you to work on your lesson and have it automatically rebuild whenever you save your files to disk.

NEW DEPENDENCIES

  • {servr} is now used in the serve() function.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9071

NEW FEATURE

  • Lesson blocks are now treated the same as other blocks. This is a placeholder for us to better test the separation of the lesson veiw from the default learner view.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9070

BUG FIX

  • Lessons that have readonly zlib compressed files (read: git objects) can now have their websites built. (@zkamvar, #214)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9069

MISC

  • build_handout() is now an officially exported function.
  • The pkgdown documentation has been updated

sandpaper 0.0.0.9068

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Workflows have been updated to use ubuntu-latest instead of macOS-11. The macOS runners were often ~ 1 minute faster than the ubuntu runners, but the tradeoff was potential failures when packages were not available as binary versions and would need compilation with external C libraries (along with runs failing due to brew timeouts). This update coincides with an update for the github actions, which will now check and install the ubuntu dependencies before updating/installing packages. (@zkamvar, #184)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9067

BUG FIX

sandpaper 0.0.0.9066

API CHANGE

  • set_config() now takes a named vector/list instead of a pair of vectors.

BUG FIX

  • The title of the lesson will now appear in the index page.

MISC

  • The scheduler for update-cache.yaml has been fixed to run strictly on the first Tuesday of the month instead of the first seven days of the month AND on Tuesdays.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9058

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • update-cache.yaml has been simplified to pull from the carpentries/actions repository and now updates packages that were not previously included in the lockfile (#185).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9057

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • update-cache.yaml has been fixed from a regression introduced with 4b8b14d088d03a8a9c6c90e974bb53c35691fb49 where the workflow would not run because it did not check out the repository beforehand.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9056

BUG FIX

  • update_github_workflows() now sets clean = "*.yaml" by default to align with the behavior of the GitHub workflow and to prevent stale workflows from being present in the repository. (#181, @zkamvar)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9055

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • sandpaper-main.yaml and pr-receive.yaml have been simplified by using composite actions hosted in carpentries/actions/setup-sandpaper and carpentries/actions/setup-deps.
  • The caching mechanism for R packages and the package cache can now be reset by modifying a per-repository secret called CACHE_VERSION.

BUG FIX

  • A bug introduced in 0.0.0.9054 where dependencies were not discovered was fixed.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9054

MISC

sandpaper 0.0.0.9053

NEW FEATURES

  • setting option(sandpaper.handout = TRUE) will create a code handout for R lessons that will live in /files/code-handout.R on your site.

MISC

  • An internal caching mechanism has been added for pegboard::Lesson objects that we use for extracting components for the syllabus and the handout. See ?lesson_storage for details.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9052

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • pr-receive.yaml has fixed spelling.
  • pr-receive.yaml has changed to short-cut the invalid PR messages and no longer build the lesson if the PR is invalid. Instead, it will emit the same warning message without building artifacts.
  • pr-comment.yaml will no longer fail when no artifacts exist (which would cause extraneous emails for users).

DOCUMENTATION

  • Documentation for test fixtures has been improved to include branch functions.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9051

MISC

The template for the pull request message reverts back to two-dot diff notation between branches, which is temporary until #169 can be addressed. Linebreaks within paragraphs have been removed to avoid github formatting them as linebreaks.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9050

This update for {sandpaper} brings in dependency management for lessons with generated content which will make collaboration between these lessons much easier and less invasive by establishing a package cache and lockfile via the {renv} R package.

DEPENDENCY MANAGEMENT

Introduction

We use the {renv} package for controlling dependency management in the lesson, which is contained in a {renv} profile called “lesson-requirements”. We have implemented this as a profile instead of the default {renv} environment to give the maintainers flexibility of whether or not they want to use the package cache.

  • getOption('sandpaper.use_renv') will be set when {sandpaper} loads to detect if the contributor has previously consented to use the {renv} package. If this is TRUE, the lesson will use a package cache, otherwise, the lesson will use the default library.
  • use_package_cache() will give consent to {sandpaper} to create and use a package cache via {renv}. Internally, this enforces that options(sandpaper.use_renv = TRUE).
  • no_package_cache() does the opposite of use_package_cache() and revokes consent to use the package cache in a lesson temporarily. This can be useful in situtations where the cache is mis-behaving or you want to test the lesson using a newer set of packages. Internally, this enforces that options(sandpaper.use_renv = FALSE).
  • package_cache_trigger(TRUE) allows you to trigger a full rebuild when the lockfile changes. This is set to TRUE by default on ci_build_markdown()

Managing the Package Cache

NEW FEATURES

  • create_lesson() now additionally will create a {renv} profile called “packages” in the lesson repository if getOption('sandpaper.use_renv') is TRUE. This will make the lesson more portable.
  • index and README files can now be Rmd files (though it is recommended to use .renvignore for these files if they are to avoid {sandpaper} becoming part of the package cache).
  • internal function ci_deploy() will set sandpaper.use_renv option to TRUE
  • build_markdown() and thus build_lesson() will now cache config.yaml and renv.lock. It will no longer step through the build process if no markdown files need to be rebuilt. This will cause any project built with previous versions of sandpaper to be fully rebuilt.
  • sandpaper_site() (and thus, build_lesson()) now can take in a single file for rendering and render that specific file regardless if it is present in the cache without rendering other files. This further addresses #77. (n.b. this involved changes to build_markdown(), build_site(), and build_status()).
  • varnish_vars() is a list that contains commonly used variables in the lesson that can not be contained in the config.yaml
  • build_episode() and build_home() now supply default variables to varnish.

CONTINOUS INTEGRATION

  • unexported function ci_deploy() will now automatically check and set the git user and email.
  • sandpaper-main.yaml and pr-receive.yaml have been updated to include the {renv} cache, but they will skip these steps for markdown lessons.
  • update-cache.yaml is a new workflow that will update the package cache lockfile and create a pull request to trigger new builds if the lesson uses {renv}.
  • update-workflows.yaml now produces more informative instructions for creating a repository secret.

MISC

  • some of the {callr} functions have been made non-anonymous and moved to a separate file so they could be tested independently.

BUG FIX

  • changes to config.yaml are now reflected on the lesson site without rebuilding (fixes #75)
  • knitr option root.dir has been set to the output directory to avoid generated content from entering the source.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9049

This is a placeholder for the testing of 0.0.0.9050.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9048

BUG FIX

  • pandoc lua filter no longer errors on raw div HTML elements with no class (@zkamvar, #166)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9047

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • The update-workflows.yaml workflow now checks if the SANDPAPER_WORKFLOW secret is valid. If not, it provides instructions for creating a new secret.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9046

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Weekly run pull requests now default to “weekly run” for “who triggered this pull request”

sandpaper 0.0.0.9045

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Weekly run has been added for the workflows action
  • Actions have been updated to reflect the zkamvar -> carpenteries repository transfer (@zkamvar, #156)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9044

CONTIUOUS INTEGRATION

  • The update-workflow.yaml parameters have been fixed to not use wildcards

MISC

sandpaper 0.0.0.9043

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • The update-workflow.yaml workflow has been updated to use the github action hosted on zkamvar/actions (soon to be transferred to The Carpentries account
  • The names of the actions displayed on GitHub have been updated to be more descriptive.
  • The script in inst/scripts/update-workflows.sh has been removed in favor of the github action.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9042

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • An experimental update-workflow.yaml workflow has been created which will create a pull request that will update the workflows. It is still very experimental and it requires a scoped with repo and scope, but, nevertheless, the concept is currently valid.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9041

MISC

  • fetch_github_workflows() has been renamed to update_github_workflows()
  • github workflows are no longer downloaded from an external source; they now live in inst/workflows. This will reduce the internet connection requirements for setting up a lesson and testing sandpaper.
  • create_lesson() now reports progress as it goes along
  • tests were updated to use the fixtures

  • remove {xml2} from explicit dependencies

sandpaper 0.0.0.9036

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Documentation for git_worktree_setup() has been added for future versions of the maintainer and future contributors.
  • ci_bundle_pr_artifacts() is a new internal function that will create artifacts for GitHub to upload upon receipt of a pull request. This will replace clunky shell code that lived inside a YAML configuration file. (@zkamvar, #139)
  • add {brio} to soft dependencies (for testing, but maybe could speed up???)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9035

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

  • Tests for git operations were added to be more robust (@zkamvar, #137)
  • new test fixtures for a local remote repository was added to aid the above git tests.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9034

NEW FEATURES

  • Authors can now cross-link between files within the lesson as they appear in the lesson instead of trying to guess how the link would appear on the website. For example, if you wanted to reference learners/setup.md in episodes/introduction.md, you would write [setup](../learners/setup.md) and it will be automatically converted to the correct URL in the website (#43). This is still backwards compatible with the previous iteration of writing the flattened link (as it would appear on the website).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9033

NEW FEATURES

  • get_drafts() will report any markdown files that are not currently published in the lesson.
  • Draft alert notifications are controlled by the "sandpaper.show_draft" option. To turn off these messages, use options(sandpaper.show_draft = FALSE)
  • The set_dropdown() family of functions will now throw an error if an author attempts to add a file that does not exist
  • An error will occurr if the files listed in config.yaml do not exist in the lesson with an informative message highlighting the files that are missing.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9032

MISC

  • The internal get_resource_list() function has been modified to incorporate the features of get_dropdown(). This means that all get_dropdown() functions will only report the files in the dropdown menus that actually exist in the directory (#134).
  • A persistant test fixture is now included to speed up testing time (#132 via #134)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9031

MISC

  • A test that caused problems with a new version of {pegboard} was fixed

sandpaper 0.0.0.9029

MISC

  • The internal database is updated to use relative instead of absolute paths. This fixes #129

sandpaper 0.0.0.9028

NEW IMPORTS

The {pingr} package is now being imported to check for online access, which will marginally decrease data usage (@fmichonneau, #127).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9027

MISC

  • create_schedule() (internal function) no longer uses pegboard’s extensions for fixing reference links.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9026

MISC

  • tests now clean up after themselves and no longer change the working directory by default
  • {varnish} version bumped to 0.0.0.9005

  • tests for the presences of multiple files will use setequal instead of equal to allow for alternate sorting orders.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9025

DEPENDENCY UPDATE

  • required {pegboard} has been bumped to version 0.0.0.9014
  • {renv} and {sessioninfo} added to Suggested packages.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9024

BUG FIX

  • create_lesson() will now enforce “main” or the default branch (if init.defaultBranch is set) as the default branch for the new lesson. It will also try to make the URL match the project name and user name (but the latter is limited to users who have GitHub PAT set up that {gh} recognises).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9023

BUG FIX

  • build_episode_md() now sets the knitr.pandoc.to knit option to allow for the chunk option fig.cap to be rendered as a caption. This fixes #114.

NEW FEATURES

  • set_dropdown() is now generalized to set any item in the dropdown menu (though this will likely be wrapped into a better-named function for generalized editing).
  • system.file("transform.R", pacakge = "sandpaper") points to a file that will be used for transforming styles-repo era lessons to sandpaper lessons.
  • read/write cycles were reduced in markdown generation because we are no longer interfering with the manipulation of the files at this stage (and haven’t been for a while now).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9022

BUG FIX

  • build_markdown(rebuild = TRUE) now actually rebuilds the lesson
  • Changing an episode suffix will no longer result in a build error. This was due to build_markdown() trying to clean after building the output instead of before. It’s a situation of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. In any case, this fixes #102.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9021

BUG FIX

  • the template will be initialized with ALL folders with placeholders inside of the instructor/ and profile/ menus. This fixes #103.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9020

BUG FIX

  • the set_*() functions no longer mess up yaml lists in config.yaml. This fixes #53.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9019

  • The required version of {pegboard} has been bumped to 0.0.0.9012, which gives better error messages and allows us to read in {sandpaper} lessons with the Lesson object.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9018

  • The episode template has been rearranged slightly and given level 2 headers.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9017

ENGINE UPDATE

  • The version of pandoc will be explicitly checked to ensure that the version used is at least 2.11.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9016

BUG FIX

  • create_episode() with make_prefix = FALSE will no longer create episodes prefixed with - (see #93).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9015

NEW FEATURES

  • fetch_github_workflows() will download and update the GitHub workflows from the Carpentries actions repository.
  • update_varnish() will download and update the {varnish} styling package to your local repository.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9014

BUG FIX

  • Episode order is retained in the HTML navigation (#85)
  • index.md is recorded in the site/build/ directory, and thus in the md-pages branch on deployment.

ENGINE UPDATE

The caching mechanism is now similar to that of {blogdown} where a database of source files and their checksum hashes is kept and only the updated files are built. This provides two advantages, the first is that we no longer have to peek at the top of the files to check if they need to be updated and the second is that we can keep the files in the right order (see #85)

Importantly, the workflow itself should not be affected, but there will be changes in what gets displayed on the github diff of the md-outputs branch.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9013

NEW FEATURES

  • In RStudio, the knit button works 🎉 (fix #77; @zkamvar, #82)
  • sandpaper_site() is a site generator function that allows {rmarkdown} to use the {sandpaper} machinery to build the site from rmarkdown::render_site()
  • build_site() gains a slug argument that tailors the previewed content.
  • create_lesson() will now create a blank index.md with site: sandpaper_site as the only YAML item.
  • HTML accidentally rendered to the source directories are silently removed when the site is built. (fix #78, @zkamvar, #84)

sandpaper 0.0.0.9012

NEW FEATURES

sandpaper 0.0.0.9011

BUG FIX

  • Objectives and Questions headings will now no longer be rendered (fix #64).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9010

BUG FIX

  • If index.md exists at the top level, it will be used instead of README.md for the lesson index page (fix #56).

sandpaper 0.0.0.9009

BUG FIX

  • The lua filter responsible for creating the Objectives summary block at the beginning of episodes now uses native pandoc divs instead of HTML block shims. This ensures that the content is not corrupted by pandoc’s section divs extension. This addresses issue #64
  • All aside elements will be forced to have level 3 headers (this fixes an issue with pandocs –section-divs where it couldn’t understand when an HTML block contained only the start of an aside tag and decided to end the section right after it.
  • The Objectives and Questions blocks will no longer include their headers in the initial summary block.
  • A bug introduced in version 0.0.0.9008 was fixed. This bug improperly used regex resulting in the accidental removal of cached rendered images. This fixes issue #49
  • Rendered images now have the prefix of {SOURCE}-rendered- in the site/built/fig/ subdir.

sandpaper 0.0.0.9008

BUG FIX

  • files that were removed from the source are now also removed in the site/built directory. This fixes issue #47

sandpaper 0.0.0.9007

  • HTML will now be processed with pandoc lua filters that will do the following:
    • overview block will be constructed from the teaching and exercises metadata with the question and objectives blocks
    • instructor and callout divs will be converted to <aside> tags
    • divs without H2 level headers will have them automatically inserted
    • divs with incorrect level headers will have them converted to H2
    • only divs in our list of carpentries divs will be converted
  • README updated to reflect API changes

sandpaper 0.0.0.9006

Continuous integration functions added:

  • ci_deploy() will build the markdown source and the site and commit them to separate branches, including information about their source.
  • ci_build_markdown() will build the markdown source files and commit them to a separate branch, including information about the source commit.
  • ci_build_site() will build the site directly from the markdown branch, bypassing re-rendering the markdown files.

Miscellaneous additions

  • {dovetail} no longer in suggests
  • new internal function build_site() compartmentalizes the conversion from markdown to html
  • any files or folders named .git in the episodes directory will not be copied over to the website.
