Rmackdown in vscode

I always told peoples this: ” The R ecosystem is different then the MS office bundle of software”. We always assumed that we can only use the Rmarkdown super powers inside the Rstudio IDE. Wrong, Rmardown is just a file with the extension ’Rmd’. The R interpreter will know how to run the code inside of it. Even the knitr is a R function, acting as an api, that will communicate with pandoc and the LaTeX compiler. Now I can easily work with Rstudio and vscode on the same project.
