A knitr-flavoured markdown post

It's kind of like R markdown but so much worse

This is a "knitr-markdown" blog post. For no particular reason I've decided to use .kmd as the file extension ("knitr markdown"). Much like R markdown it uses knitr to render the code chunks to a knitted markdown file, but it's not actually R markdown so I don't want to use .Rmd or whatever.

add_one <- function(x) {
    x + 1

Eleventy doesn't process the .kmd file, but it will process the .md file that gets created when I call knitr on this. Handling plot outputs is slightly more complicated, because it requires a lot more care in managing the knitr/eleventy interaction. I'll discuss that in the main post.
