Quarto is an open-source scientific and technical publishing system built on Pandoc.

Content authored using Quarto can be published to RStudio Connect. Quarto must be installed on your system and configured in RStudio Connect prior to its use. Contact your RStudio Connect administrator if Quarto support is not available. Information about setting up Quarto in RStudio Connect is available in the Quarto chapter of the Admin Guide

For information about authoring Quarto content, see the Quarto Guide.

Publishing Quarto Content#

There are multiple ways to publish Quarto content to RStudio Connect. See the linked documentation for each method for more on how to use it to publish Quarto content.

Tool Method Supported Runtimes
RStudio IDE Push-button publishing knitr, jupyter
The quarto CLI quarto publish connect knitr, jupyter
The quarto R package quarto_publish_[site|app|doc]() knitr, jupyter
The rsconnect R package deployApp(quarto = QUARTO_PATH),
writeManifest(quarto = QUARTO_PATH)
knitr, jupyter
The rsconnect-python CLI rsconnect deploy quarto,
rsconnect write-manifest quarto
The rsconnect-python CLI rsconnect deploy manifest knitr, jupyter
