I am happy to introduce the dragondown R package. This package will allow for you to write your Drexel University Master’s or PhD Thesis/Dissertation entirely in Rmarkdown without having to write it in LaTeX. This package is inspired by the thesisdown package. How it works Using dragondown is fairly straightforward. dragondown (along with other Rmarkdown projects) are typically best when done in RStudio, so your first step is to install RStudio and R.
