macOS theme for Joplin
Native looking macOS theme for note taking app Joplin v2.2.4 and above. Also works on non-macOS devices.
- ✨ Completely styled UI, including all controls,
- 🌜 Choose between light, dark, light with dark sidebar or auto (light/dark based on system preferences),
- 👌 Use native icons (macOS only) or Phosphor icon family,
- 👨🎨 Easy to customise via Joplin preferences.
- Open Joplin preferences › 'Plugins', search for 'macOS theme' and install the theme.
- Restart Joplin. Enjoy!
Make sure you set ‘Appearance › Theme’ to either ‘Light’ or ‘Dark’. If you experience a flash when switching notebooks sync the Light/Dark-settings under ‘Appearance › Theme’ with the value selected under ‘macOS theme › Appearance’. For more customisation options see below.
After installing you can find an extra item named 'macOS theme' in Joplin's preferences. You need to restart Joplin for the changes to apply.
Mac users: If you want to use the native icons, download and install SF Pro from the Apple website here.
If you have the 'Icon family'-setting set to 'macOS native (SF Pro)' you need to have SF Pro installed from the Apple website. Note that this only works on macOS-devices.
!important’s were used. These may cause UI issues with future Joplin releases. Since it's just CSS, your data remains safe and you can easily revert the styles.
You can tweak the theme via Joplin's preferences. If you want to go all out follow the following steps to make your own build.
To build the plugin:
npm run dist
To update the plugin framework:
npm run update
To build just the CSS and watch for changes:
npm run dev
The generated CSS will be available at: http://localhost:8080/macos-theme-for-joplin.css.
You may want to refresh the CSS when Joplin gets focus. To do so toggle Joplin's devtools and paste this script in the console.
