All Formats


Pandoc supports a huge array of output formats, all of which can be used with Quarto. To use any Pandoc format just use the format option or the --to command line option.

For example, here’s some YAML that specifies the use of the html format as well as a couple of format options:

title: "My Document"
    toc: true
    code-fold: true

Alternatively you can specify the use of a format on the command line:

quarto render document.qmd --to html
