Error in `if (xfun::is_blank(options$code)) ...`: ! the condition has length > 1

I would like to write a blog using Quarto and add a Shiny app. But when I try to run a simple shiny example app like from the quarto website, I get an error. Here is some reproducible code from an .qmd file like the example from link above:

title: "Old Faithful"
format: html
server: shiny

sliderInput("bins", "Number of bins:", 
            min = 1, max = 50, value = 30)

#| context: server
output$distPlot <- renderPlot({
  x <- faithful[, 2]  # Old Faithful Geyser data
  bins <- seq(min(x), max(x), length.out = input$bins + 1)
  hist(x, breaks = bins, col = 'darkgray', border = 'white')

Output error:

processing file: test.qmd
  |....................................................| 100% [unnamed-chunk-2]
Quitting from lines 14-20 [unnamed-chunk-2] (test.qmd)

Adding a setup chunk with shiny package also doesn't work:

#| context: setup

So even running the exact same code as from the site returns in an error which I'm not sure how to solve. So I was wondering if anyone knows why this error happens and how to fix it?

I am using the following quarto version:

quarto --version


  • After installing the latest version of the rmarkdown v2.10 package, the error was solved using this:
