Does RMarkdown come along with RStudio installation package

I would like to understand whether RMarkdown comes along with RStudio installation package or does it need a separate installation.

Also, is it mandatory to have RStudio installed on a machine in order for RMarkdown to work?

On a fresh installation of RStudio, you will need to install knitr. When you open an R Markdown doc our notebook (or try to knit it), the IDE will prompt you to install the required packages.

You can just use base R to knit .Rmd files, the RStudio IDE isn't required.

A good place to understand how R Markdown works for yourself is here:
