Customizing Settings#

With the CLI, if you create an {lite-dir}/overrides.json in either the root, or a specific {lite-dir}/{app}/ directory, these will be merged into {output-dir}/{app?/}jupyter-lite.json#/jupyter-config-data/settingsOverrides.


Customize the REPL app#

Let’s say you would like to customize the behavior of the REPL app, and use the terminal interaction mode.

You can create the following overrides.json in {lite-dir}/repl/ before building:

  "@jupyterlab/console-extension:tracker": {
    "interactionMode": "terminal"

One of the effects of using terminal for the interactionMode will be the switch from Shift-Enter to Enter for executing code.

Add a download button in the notebook menu bar#

If you want to add a download button in the notebook menu bar, you can add the following lines in overrides.json:

  "@jupyterlab/notebook-extension:panel": {
    "toolbar": [
        "name": "download",
        "label": "Download",
        "args": {},
        "command": "docmanager:download",
        "icon": "ui-components:download",
        "rank": 50

You will now have a menu bar similar to the one below:
