Custom Roam Research Themes

theianjones profile image Ian Jones Originally published at on ・1 min read

You can write your own custom themes using the stylus extension in chrome. Maggie Appleton has came up with the idea to override the styles with your own.

I've been maintaining a Night Owl theme (s/o to Sarah Drasner for the original colors).

I put these themes up on github if you want to create your own or take mine!

Hey Ian,

Thank you so much for this!
I have made my own version and love it.

However, I have noticed one bug as I changed it for myself:
I cannot see the indents above my linked references anymore. With my minimal coding knowledge I have tried to look into it - and found something in the 'Google Chrome Inspect' Page:
style="position: absolute; display: flex; top: 0px; bottom: 0px; left: 0px; right: 0px;"

When I put top and bottom to 10 this one single referenced link worked - but not the previous one's which were not links - also I could not find this in the stylus page...

Would you know where the error lies?

Kind regards
