With the development of Quarto, is there any advantage to keep developing a website or a blog with distill?
HTML documents rendered with Quarto use Bootstrap 5 by default, which is not the case with distill.pub. . For me this is huge plus (e.g. collapsible sidebar navigation in Quarto, language agnostic, etc.).
I have just started my distill-blog two months ago when I "discovered" Quarto, and now I have the same doubts.
All the feature from distill should be now in Quarto. Main difference is that distill is based on https://distill.pub/ as mentioned by @radovan and Quarto default them is on Bootstrap. So features from distill have been re implemented, and improved (like listings with custom listing)
So I would say that as long as you are happy with distill, there is no reason to switch - it won't go away. If you want to try Quarto, then you'll find the same features and more. If you don't need R for your website (no R content in document), then Quarto does not need R contrary to distill who needs R to run.
So keep developing your website using distill as long as you are happy with it.
Radovan and Christophe,
Thank you very much for your response.
According to what you say I prefer to move to Quarto. It has much potential and flexibility.
As you wish.
Keep in mind that there is not yet a v1 version and development is active with daily builds and quick fix if regression happen.
but there should be a first stable release soon (stable meaning no new version several time a days ).
