R markdown, hugo and static blogs
i want a simple and minimalist blog that i can update using git and host it in gitlab or bitbucket or maybe at [Netlify: All-in-one platform for automating modern web projects.](https://www.netlify.com/)

so these last days i've been reading and researching about how can i do it the easy way since i don't now a thing about html or css, that's when i found jekyll and hugo static generators that make use of markdown and can be hosted at the above sites....that's cool!

but when i thought i had find what i wanted, i found something even more cool, a R package called blogdown.

[Announcing blogdown: Create Websites with R Markdown | RStudio Blog](https://blog.rstudio.com/2017/09/11/anno...-blogdown/)

the problem is, how to use R....and install it on my Debian 9x (actually mxlinux)....

so let me ask some questions that i guess you geeks :D already know the answers:

to install R i just need this right? i ask because there is also another package called R-base, maybe i should install both of them?!
apt install r-base-core

for R markdown there are several packages, is this the right one?

apt install r-cran-markdown

do i have to install something like pandoc? i guess that would be also nice, since i want to convert my resume from odt to pdf and markdown....

apt install pandoc

and for the blog, i have to install the blogdown package, in one of the above links i found something like:


i already installed RStudio, it sort of works locally it generated a new project with a new dir, downloaded a theme and i just had to start the server (hugo server) and i had a examplesite as hugo defines it, working, but i want to know what i am doing since what i really want is to use Vim with the rest of these tools that i mentioned above....

am i doing it right? at least regarding R, markdown and pandoc.

and since i decided to learn something, can you guys please point me at some easy online place where i can try to understand css, nothing fancy, just to have an idea of what to do, the basics?

sorry about my english, it's not my mother tongue...

thanks in advance....
