Themes

This chapter is about bpython’s theming capabalities.

bpython uses .theme files placed in your $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython directory [1]. You can set the theme in the color_scheme option in your $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/config file (Configuration).

Available Colors

  • k = black
  • r = red
  • g = green
  • y = yellow
  • b = blue
  • m = magenta
  • c = cyan
  • w = white
  • d = default, this will make the switch default to the bpython default theme

Any letter writting uppercase will make the switch bold.

Available Switches

  • keyword
  • name
  • comment
  • string
  • error
  • number
  • operator
  • punctuation
  • token
  • background
  • output
  • main
