You can write your own themes or use already available themes by just dropping them under
~/.lightpaper/Themes directory. You can also put themes under a subdirectory as well as just clone a repo and LightPaper for Mac will pick them up without any extra efforts on your side. Files ending in
.txt are counted as editor themes while files ending in
.css are counted as preview themes.
Here are some of the themes that are already available publicly on github that you can use right away:
- Dashing Theme by @designerJordan
- Theme by hzlzh
- Clearness Dark Plus by Staudi
- Byword Theme by kvanlierop
- Kublai Theme by moizk
- Verona Theme by MSpirek
- Solarized Theme by CodeCatalyst
- Github2 Theme by gcollazo
- Mou Themes by jessemutz
- mou-theme by samrayner
- Swizzle by chrissimpkins
- Snowball by chrissimpkins
- Flatland by Kikobeats
- PrintPretty by a1ee9b
Clone one or all of the above themes under
~/.lightpaper/Themes and you are all set. You can select a theme for the editor and/ or for the preview from the Preferences pane (
⌘,). If two themes share the same name, only one of them will be picked. If you want to write your own theme, we recommend you to use one of the above mentioned themes as a template.
If you want to add a link to your themes or some other themes that you know, ping us at @LightPaperApp or fork this document and send us a pull request.
Also, we’ve spent countless hours writing this app. So if you like LightPaper please show your gratitude with a tweet.
