Here we will be using the RStudio IDE rather than the command line; please also see as we develop this further.


  • We’ll use GitHub branches, consider them temporary and unlimited
  • We’ll interact with Quarto through RStudio

Create a branch on

  1. Go to click the main branch and type your-branch name for your branch
  2. Clone/pull locally to RStudio
  3. Click in the top-right on main and switch to your-branch; this will add it to the “local branches” section.
