Styling the bookmark


I’m using the ‘bookmarks’ package (version 0.44.4) for setting bookmarks.

Is there a way to set the foreground and/or background color of the bookmarks indicator, maybe using a suitable definition in styles.less?

I checked the documentation for this package, but it does not document any way to do it.


What about the styles.less file for the package? That contains clues about which selectors you want.


The clue helped. I copied from the file you suggested the relevant part, and put it like this in my own styles.less:

atom-text-editor {
  .gutter .line-number.bookmarked .icon-right {
    visibility: visible;
    &:before {
      color: red;
      background_color: green;

This indeed yields a red bookmark on green background. Thanks a lot.
