I have theoretic question.
I know that on RStudio Server (which mostly running on unix machine, like ubuntu) is possible to generate rmarkdown document into PDF via TeX. RStudio Server use this unix distribution of TeX (like Texlive or MikteX).
**Is possible to use similar "server TeX" distribution for compiling and creating PDF from RStudio IDE (desktop) ? Like remote server ? **
Because in common way users needs to install TeX live on local machine, which take time, resources,... (many of them, do not have idea about TeX ), so i think is easier use one remote server for connect, deploy files, create pdf and receive that.
And another questions is about RStudio Connect which can create html, application, shiny,..... but can not PDF or can?
Last question is using existing solutions (like sharelatex.com or overleaf) ?
Thanks for any advice
