Yes, I just never remember how to use it :-) 
Writing My PhD have made a lot of holes in my usage of IPython. 
We should really write documentation for Javascript stuff.

>> To install, you can do something like:
>> 1) Change to the profile you want to use:
>> cd $(ipython locate)/profile_default/static/custom/
>> 2) Overwrite or edit your custom js and css:
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/custom_example.js -o custom.css
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/custom.css 
>> 3) Get the extensions that you want:
>> Document tools:
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/bibtex.js
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/document-tools.js
>> Cell tools:
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/cell-tools.js
>> Spell checking:
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/spell-check.js
>> wget https://bitbucket.org/ipre/calico/raw/master/notebooks/profile/static/custom/typo.zip
>> unzip typo.zip
>> We'd be glad to get feedback on any and all of these. We hope that you find them useful!
