Background For the last year and a quarter, I’ve been following the quarto project spear-headed by J.J. Allaire and Charles Teague. They describe quarto as:
an open-source scientific and technical publishing system built on Pandoc
Perhaps a better, albeit more simplified description is:
a multi-language implementation of RMarkdown-like reproducible reports with a lot more page layout control.
When I was younger, we were never lost. In your words, we were just on a lovely, lovely car ride to our destination. As technology improved, our lovely, lovely car rides became less of an occurrence; unless, we disagreed with the GPS…
… Or were covered bridging without GPS connectivity. I didn’t know that our last adventure together would be on our family’s most treasured activity. I thought, hoped, and longed for the difficulties of the last year to be in the rear-view mirror.
