Whenever I want to take notes and do calculation at the same time in Mathematica Notebook, I found it's annoying to change the style of the cell and typesetting with mouse kept clicking around.

Is there a third-party package supporting us to write markdown language directly in Mathematica Notebook? so that we can use Mathematica notebook in an elegant way like using Jupyter Notebook, which let us get rid of using mouse and large amounts of shortcuts.

I think Jupyter Notebook and Mathematica Notebook work in the similar way. Writing texts and running code at one place.

  • $\begingroup$ You can use the keyboard shortcuts to change the styles. Alt+7 switch current cell to text-cell style which is good for any comments. $\endgroup$ – Rom38 Jul 26 '17 at 8:55
  • $\begingroup$ So my guess is that it is possible but not in the same form, that is without taking care of anything. The reason is that # and ## are already special for a parser. $\endgroup$ – Kuba Jul 26 '17 at 9:24
  • $\begingroup$ I think StyleKeyMapping is your friend here. I use it in my notebook-to-markdown stylesheet to switch between cell styles conveniently, for example. $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Aug 28 '17 at 1:33
