After switching to Ubuntu as my operating system I needed to re-install all of the R packages I needed to work on my website. These included both the packages needed by blogdown and packages I used in specific articles. I didn’t know what I was missing until I ran into an error. Installing the missing software packages was time consuming and tedious. Not only was the process frustrating, recreating my development environment piece by piece did not follow best practices for reproducibility.
