Automtic build tool for R Reports

Project description


Automatic build tool for R Reports


  • Enables reproducible research by appending every R-markdown script to the global analysis pipeline written in snakemake
  • All R scripts using R-markdown get compiled via Rmarkdown and rendered in a navigable web-page
  • This is achieved by writing the snakemake rules directly in the header of your R scripts * Headers allow the same flexibility (i.e. usage of python) as in the traditional Snakefile


  • pip install wBuild

Within the Gagneurlab, load python version /opt/modules/i12g/anaconda/3-4.1.1/ using module system..

Getting started

  • Navigate to an empty directory
  • Run wbuild demo. This will create a wBuild demo project with various examples.
  • Explore the files in Scripts/
  • View the compiled version of the demo project: <>
  • Run snakemake to compile the projects
  • Open Output/html/index.html in your web browser.


  • Navigate to the root of your project (new or existing)
