SpaDES simulations typically start and end at a pre-specified times.
So how do you end a simulation based on some other stopping criteria, such as when some variable reaches a particular value?
Rmarkdown with Rstudio and for all stages of my scientific projects has been a remarkable shift in how my work gets done!
There are so many advantages to this type of workflow, not least of which are reproducibility and transparency (both are crucial for scientists as well as public servants).
I’ve been using this approach as much as possible recently, and I’m quite happy with it.
The entire process can be done using
Rmarkdown etc. but there are still a few challenges which I’ll touch on below.
