going from Bookdown (rethinkpriorities package or Reinstein's bookdowns) to Quarto books

Bookdown to Quarto -- steps and considerations

#rstats I think I'll switch to Quarto. It seems it can do all Bookdown can do & more, with better support.

- Anyone know tools/templates for converting projects from Rmd/Bookdown to Quarto?
- Am I losing something from making the switch?

At Rethink we set up this template and tools.

For much of my work I was using the Bookdown style and template I worked on here

But I think I am (and we are) moving to Quarto. ... Quarto pages and Quart


Git/Github Question I keep coming back to

  • I need to maintain 2 versions of a page, site, or report, for different audiences. E.g., one ‘public’ and one ‘private within group’

  • I keep each of these on distinct branches in the same repository

  • Alternatively I could make these separate repositories, one fork in the other, although that feels more bulky

Suprisingly easy to set up GH the CLI and make a repo ... Just some bash script and CLI responses

Setting up the Github terminal access -- 'gh cli' and setting up a repo

I waited a long time to try this, but it proved surprisingly easy

Install GitHub CLI, authenticate

In the bash terminal ... if you have brew installed on a Mac
