Ryan spoke about using the
aggiedown package to write your dissertation using Rmarkdown, and create an officially formatted (according to UC Davis) pdf!
“Writing your dissertation is hard…formatting it is even harder. If you are interested in using a bookdown/Rmarkdown template that has been formatted for UC Davis specifications to generate a correctly typeset pdf of your dissertation/thesis, please check this out. If it breaks, or if you find/have any problems in formatting, please file an issue so we can make this better.”
