Is it necessary to stop the VM once I finished working on my project?


is it necessary to stop the VM (like in AWS, GCP or Paperspace) once I finish working? Or do I just need to log out? I don't want to block resources which may be used by someone else. Also, if I have saved all my source files, do I need to also save the project before logging out?

The VM (actually a container) which runs your IDE will automatically shutdown when your IDE has been idle for 15 minutes.


Brilliant setup! Is it a Docker container, by the way?

Yep. RStudio Cloud uses docker as a container runtime.
