Is there a good way to post from .Rmd to yet?

I know we have blogdown and distill, which are great for hosting whole sites. We also have the github_document output from knitr, which is ok, but a little manual to get something up on the site.

Does anyone know if there is any work being done to publish more effectively to, or something that I might have missed that is well known?
