Jupyter lab extension to add keyboard shortcuts for altering cell slide mode.


  • JupyterLab >= 2.0


jupyter labextension install jupyterlab-slide-mode-keyboard-shortcuts


This package sets up configurable keyboard shortcuts for changing the slidemode of notebook cells.

The shortcuts only work in "command mode".

The default keyboard shortcuts are:

  • slide: Shift S
  • subslide: Shift B
  • fragment: Shift G
  • skip: Shift I
  • notes: Shift N
  • clear: Shift C

These can be customized via the standard JupyterLab keyboard shortcut custimization interface.


Developer Install

The jlpm command is JupyterLab's pinned version of yarn that is installed with JupyterLab. You may use yarn or npm in lieu of jlpm below.

# Clone the repo to your local environment
# Move to slide-mode-keyboard-shortcuts directory

# Install dependencies
# Build Typescript source
jlpm build
# Link your development version of the extension with JupyterLab
jupyter labextension install .
# Rebuild Typescript source after making changes
jlpm build
# Rebuild JupyterLab after making any changes
jupyter lab build

You can watch the source directory and run JupyterLab in watch mode to watch for changes in the extension's source and automatically rebuild the extension and application.

# Watch the source directory in another terminal tab
jlpm watch
# Run jupyterlab in watch mode in one terminal tab
jupyter lab --watch

Now every change will be built locally and bundled into JupyterLab. Be sure to refresh your browser page after saving file changes to reload the extension (note: you'll need to wait for webpack to finish, which can take 10s+ at times).
