#> New challenge installed in: "/private/var/folders/24/8k48jl6d249_n_qfxwsl6xvm0000gn/T/RtmpcOhZNa" #> Next steps to complete the installation: #> 1. Replace the data files in the "data" subdirectory. #> 2. Replace the baseline predictions in "submissions/baseline". #> 3. Customize the template R Markdown file "challenge.rmd" as needed. #> 4. Create and share subdirectories in "submissions" for each team: #> rchallenge::new_team("team_foo", "team_bar", path=".", submissions_dir="submissions") #> 5. Render the HTML page: #> rchallenge::publish("./challenge.rmd") #> 6. Give the URL to "challenge.html" to the participants. #> 7. Automate the updates of the webpage. #> On Unix systems, you can setup the following line to your crontab using "crontab -e": #> 0 * * * * Rscript -e 'rchallenge::publish("/private/var/folders/24/8k48jl6d249_n_qfxwsl6xvm0000gn/T/RtmpcOhZNa/challenge.rmd")'
