Greetings from quarto-webr Wonderland!

Empowering Your Quarto Documents with R through webR

Welcome to the documentation portal for the community quarto-webr extension – your key to unlocking the endless possibilities of webR within various Quarto formats, including HTML, RevealJS, Websites, Blogs, and Books.

Ready for an exciting journey into the world of webR’s interactive code cells? Click the “Run Code” button below to experience it firsthand:

At its core, the community quarto-webr extension is designed to empower you to run R code directly in your web browser using familiar reporting tools, all without the need for an external R server. Moreover, the extension abstracts away the need to know HTML or JavaScript to use webR. However, it’s worth noting that you can also choose to unlock the full potential of webR and create more complex applications independently by directly using webR’s JavaScript API, granting you unparalleled freedom to harness the power of R in innovative ways.

With this in mind, let’s dive in and kickstart your journey with interactive code cells by creating our very first webR-powered Quarto document or exploring some examples!


This Quarto extension is open source software and is not affiliated with Posit, Quarto, or webR. The extension is at best a community effort to simplify the integration of webR inside of Quarto generated documents.
