So one Saturday I got particularly bored and thought I should configure my Jupyter Notebook a bit. What I wanted to achieve:
- Remove annoying Jupyter logo
- Use a better monospaced font
- Make syntax highlighting look like the Xcode default one
I’m not a huge fan of dark schemes and wanted to have some familiarity with Xcode syntax highlighting, so I forked a neat looking solution that already had header logo disabled, and then spent a couple of hours making sure the colours match to those of Xcode.
Without further ado, this is what it looks like. I was pretty pleased with the result and have been using it ever since (e.g. for a couple of months now).
You can, of course, get this theme on GitHub:
You can find detailed installation instructions following this link. Although for me it was as easy as placing the
custom.css file in the
~/.jupyter/custom folder on both my macOS and Ubuntu machines.
Final note: if you don’t have Apple’s
Menlo font installed you may want to check out its open source alternative
