7.4 Build and preview slides
You can knit the source document like other Rmd documents to view the output, but it may be tedious to have to knit it over and over again whenever you make changes. The other way to preview the slides is the RStudio addin “Infinite Moon Reader” or the function
xaringan::inf_mr(), as mentioned in Section 2.2. With this way, you can continuously preview your slides just by saving the source document. The continuous preview is achieved via a local web server launched by the servr package (Xie 2018d).
