Pygments theme using JupyterLab CSS variables

Project description

JupyterLab Pygments Theme

This package contains a syntax coloring theme for pygments making use of the JupyterLab CSS variables.

The goal is to enable the use of JupyterLab's themes with pygments-generated HTML.


In the following screencast, we demonstrate how Pygments-highlighted code can make use of the JupyterLab theme.

pygments screencast


jupyterlab_pygments can be installed with the conda package manager

conda install -c conda-forge jupyterlab_pygments

or from pypi

pip install jupyterlab_pygments


  • jupyterlab_pygments requires pygments version 2.4.1.
  • The CSS variables used by the theme correspond to the CodeMirror syntex coloring theme defined in the NPM package @jupyterlab/codemirror. Supported versions for @jupyterlab/codemirror's CSS include 0.19.1, ^1.0, and, ^2.0.


Pygments-generated HTML and CSS classes are not granular enough to reproduce all of the details of codemirror (the JavaScript text editor used by JupyterLab).

This includes the ability to differentiate properties from general names.


jupyterlab_pygments uses a shared copyright model that enables all contributors to maintain the copyright on their contributions. All code is licensed under the terms of the revised BSD license.
