- Create dynamic content with Python, R, Julia, and Observable.
- Author documents as plain text markdown or Jupyter notebooks.
- Publish high-quality articles, reports, presentations, websites, blogs, and books in HTML, PDF, MS Word, ePub, and more.
- Author with scientific markdown, including equations, citations, crossrefs, figure panels, callouts, advanced layout, and more.
Pandoc markdown has excellent support for LaTeX equations and citations. Quarto adds extensions for cross-references, figure panels, callouts, advanced page layout, and more.
Engage readers by adding interactive data exploration to your documents using Jupyter Widgets, htmlwidgets for R, Observable JS, and Shiny.
It seems to load jupyter source docs just fine, and notably promises that it will actually render citations correctly in jupyter.
I do not yet understand how this works; presumably slightly differently for each output format.
The theming and site structuring is vastly less flexible as far as website output than hugo, the blogdown backend. If one wished to experiment with weird other stuff (such as the content ranking, recommendation or quirky indexing systems on this site) then one is, AFAICT, out of luck.
OTOH, it leverages many more features of pandoc which leads to many well-supported advanced typographical features.
As an academic I want certain things in my writing tools, i.e. maths, citations and crossreferences. Quarto knows about these.
