What is your favorite programming font?

There are tons of options! I used Source Code Pro for a long time, but some time ago I decided to try Iosevka, what font are you using right now for programming?

Just some monospace font, I don't really care about the tiny details.

The only thing I really cant stand at all are fancy fonts which introduce ligatures for code artifacts. So things like === or => get replaced with ONE character. This defeats the purpose of monospace imho because now you have to use extra brain power when reading your code. You always need to remember that these special characters are in fact two or three characters - it makes reading the code harder.

Well, at least for me.

Agree, I don't like those ligatures, it's like mental overload when I expect two/three symbols and find one weird one instead that isn't even in my keyboard 😂😂

Fira Code. Most cause it converts stuff like -> to an actual arrow symbol. It's also monospacex and easy on the eyes.

Fira Code is a free monospaced font containing ligatures for common programming multi-character combinations. This is just a font rendering feature: underlying code remains ASCII-compatible. This helps to read and understand code faster. For some frequent sequences like .. or //, ligatures allow us to correct spacing.

github.com/tonsky/FiraCode you can find more about it here.

JetBrains Mono because it's very round but still sharpy on the edges. I just think it's pretty neat!

Source Code Pro. If you go on Google Fonts you can find it and use it in your code without downloading anything. fonts.google.com/specimen/Source+C...
