New Chrome Extension To Turn Observable Notebooks Into Quarto Projects

My previous post announced a Rust-based command line tool for generating Quarto projects from Observable Notebooks.

Some folks may not want to use yet-another command line tool, and it dawned on me that it’d be more convenient to just do the conversion in-browser when one is already on a Notebook page. So, I dusted off some very creaky Chrome extension skills and put together an extension for doing just that.

It’s pretty straightforward:

  • navigate to a Notebook you want to serialize to a Quarto project
  • press the button
  • profit!

You can download individual resources by hand or just use the zip file that automagically downloaded.
