An arctic, north-bluish theme for the IPython interactive prompt.

Project description


An arctic, north-bluish theme for the IPython interactive prompt.


To easily get the theme installed and loading at startup:

pip install ipython_nord_theme[hook]


Install using pip:

pip install ipython-nord-theme 

or with conda:

conda install -c lewisacidic ipython-nord-theme


Load the theme with IPython magic:

%load_ext ipython_nord_theme

To set the theme back to what you had previously:

%unload_ext ipython_nord_theme

Running this at startup

You can either put the following snippet in your IPython startup directory (usually $HOME/.ipython/profile_default/startup):

    from ipython_nord_theme.startup import load
    del load  # don't pollute global namespace!!
except ModuleNotFoundError:

Or use ipython-startup-hook (recommended if you use IPython within virtual environments).

This may be done at install with the command given in the Quickstart.


Create the conda environment:

conda env create -f envs/dev.yml
conda activate ipython-nord-theme-dev

Format code by running the pre-commit tasks:

pre-commit run --all

Run the tests with pytest (note we need to use ipython rather than python for these tests):

ipython -m pytest
