Sublime-like edits in Jupyter Notebook

I’ve found some conflicting information online regarding getting sublime-like edits (e.g. ctrl+D selecting the next instance of what’s selected) so I thought I’d post what’s worked for me as recently today (September 18th, 2017)

  1. Navigate to ~/.jupyter/custom/ (create it if it doesn’t exist)
  2. Open custom.js (also create if it doesn’t exist)
  3. Paste the following:
require(["codemirror/keymap/sublime", "notebook/js/cell", "base/js/namespace"],
    function(sublime_keymap, cell, IPython) {
        // setTimeout(function(){ // uncomment line to fake race-condition
        cell.Cell.options_default.cm_config.keyMap = 'sublime';
        var cells = IPython.notebook.get_cells();
        for(var cl=0; cl< cells.length ; cl++){
            cells[cl].code_mirror.setOption('keyMap', 'sublime');

Feel free to comment more optimal or up to date methods.

Cheers :)
