Jupyter Notebook Markdown Cheatsheet

Jupyter Notebook is a great tool for data analysis. And one of its greatest features is that you can easily combine runnable code with rich-text annotations. Markdown cells that contain such annotations support both HTML and Markdown syntax.

Personally I prefer  # Header (markdown syntax) to <h1>Header</h1> (HTML syntax) in my notebook’s cells as the former looks more human. So I use markdown syntax more often and a concise cheat sheet for Jupyter Notebook markdown is what I was missing for a long time. Yes, I’m aware of such comprehensive cheat sheets like this and this, they are great but too verbal and it’s hard to print them on one page to have it easily accessible.

Eventually, I decided to gather all crucial points of the markdown syntax that are actual for Jupyter notebook and combine them in a concise cheat sheet that I present to you. It doesn’t explain much but should be useful if you simply forgot something. Click the picture to download the PDF version.
