To install and apply custom themes (e.g. dark mode) for Jupyter notebook, use the jupyterthemes library maintained by Kyle Dunovan over at Githubopen_in_new.

We show the basic usage here, but please check out the official Github pageopen_in_new for more details.

Installing via conda

To install jupyterthemes via conda:

$ conda install -c conda-forge jupyterthemes
...

Note the following:

  • -c stands for channel and conda-forge is the argument passed to this flag. conda-forge is basically where the jupyterthemes library lives.

Once installed, you can directly set a new theme by typing the following in the command line (terminal):

$ jt -t oceans16

Note the following:

  • jt stands for jupyterthemes.

  • -t stands for theme.

  • oceans16 is an example of the name of a theme to set.

  • for the theme to be applied, you have to restart your instance of Jupyter, and possibly clear browser cache.

With this, you can now code deep into the night:

Changing the font and font size

To change the font and font size:

$ jt -t chesterish -f roboto -fs 10
