πŸ™‹ FAQ

  • Q: "What's the point of the mdbook-catppuccin binary?"
    A: Arguably, it's better to transfer over the files manually to avoid installing another tool. However, the assets will NOT be managed for you. It is also worth mentioning that the binary will be able to detect differences in versions of assets.

  • Q: "What's the catppuccin-admonish.css file?"
    A: It is a CSS file that is used to style the admonishments that are generated by mdbook-admonish. You can remove this file if you are not using this plugin.


    -additional-css = ["./theme/catppuccin.css", "./theme/catppuccin-admonish.css"]
    +additional-css = ["./theme/catppuccin.css"]
  • Q: "How can I remove the default themes?"
    A: Navigate to index.hbs (L154 - L162) and remove the themes that you don't want. Remember to run mdbook build again!

    E.g. To remove all default themes:

    - <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="light">Light</button></li>
    - <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="rust">Rust</button></li>
    - <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="coal">Coal</button></li>
    - <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="navy">Navy</button></li>
    - <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="ayu">Ayu</button></li>
    + <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="latte">Latte</button></li>
    + <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="frappe">FrappΓ©</button></li>
    + <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="macchiato">Macchiato</button></li>
    + <li role="none"><button role="menuitem" class="theme" id="mocha">Mocha</button></li>


Inspiration for the install command came from mdbook-admonish which is another great mdBook pre-processor!
