It is straightforward to use Sweave or knitr with beamer; the only thing you need to be careful of is you have to add the
fragile option to the frames that contain verbatim code. For LyX users, make sure you use the latest version of LyX (>= 2.1.2), and then you can use the
FragileFrame environment instead of a standard
- A minimal beamer example for knitr
- A simplified version of the above example:
- Rnw source: knitr-beamer2.Rnw
- An example of using full-page tikz figures in beamer slides on Stack Overflow
- A knitr source file for including linguistic notation as graphical elements in ggplot2
One note on the Rnw source for users who came before knitr 0.6 – in the past I used this in the preamble:

footnotesize environment, but since knitr 0.6, a single global option
size will control the font size of the whole chunk, and this trick is no longer needed.

You can actually also try HTML slides, which smell fancy and modern. I have a rough tutorial here.
