Managing packages in bookdown project

I have a bookdown project that uses many packages and I was trying to make the project a bit more reproducible. It does not seem renv manages packages used in Rmd files. Is this correct? Any experiences or tips in managing packages within Rmd files will be appreciated.

I don't see why you should have problems working with Rmd, I'd put it in its own rstudio project, and thats what renv manages for you.

I just ran renv::dependencies() and realize that it looks into Rmd files. I was going by the documentation which says "It does this by crawling R files within the project for dependencies with the renv::dependencies() function." I though erroneously that it was looking only at *.R files. Thanks!
