Quarto Code Block Options

Authors: Richard J Telford

Abstract: echo? eval? Code block options for quarto documents and their interaction can be confusing for beginners. This interactive table shows the outcome of some commonly used options.

Full Description: When I was learning to use markdown, I found code block options confusing. What did I need to do to remove some unwanted output?

To help my students avoid this, I wanted to make a table to use in a tutorial for teaching quarto that would show the outcome for some important code block options.

After experimenting with static tables, I decided to use an interactive table.

The table uses reactable with interactivity provided by a slightly modified version of crosstalk (the "(All)" option is removed). Javascript is used to select the default option of each block when the page is loaded.
