Initializing the Project

To get started, follow these steps to set up the Quarto extension website project:

  1. Create a new directory named docs/ within your repository using the following command:

    mkdir docs && cd $_
  2. Initialize a Quarto website project by running the following command:

    quarto create project website .

Incorporating the Extension

To seamlessly integrate the extension into your project, you’ll need to create a symbolic link to the _extensions folder containing the development version of the extension. This approach helps you avoid maintaining a duplicate copy of the extension in your Git repository history.

Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the docs/ directory in your project.

  2. Create a symbolic link to the _extensions folder using the following command:

    ln -s ../_extensions _extensions
