What is your programming font?

Do you believe that a good monospaced font can make you more productive? Maybe more happy while coding?

My favourite font is by far Iosevka variant SS07

What font you use in your editor?

Same. Fira with ligatures has been my go-to for a while.

I was using Fira Code until I found Jetbrains Mono. They are my top two now.

Droid Sans Mono Dotted. I strongly prefer dotted zeroes and sans-serif monspace without ligatures (I use a wide enough variety of programing languages that I need to know the exact actual characters when I look at something), and Droid Sans has the rather nice benefit that it also covers the handful of natural languages I actually need support for and has a version that works properly with Powerline.

I’ve been looking for some time though for a similar font with better language support...

I love Dank Mono and JetBrains Mono I like to switch it up but right now I'm using Dank Mono

Dank is beautiful and very expensive. But if I need to choose between Dank and Operator (another expensive font) I definitely go with Dank

Oh no definetly dank is better looking than operator, at least for me...

I like Fantasque Sans Mono, it’s cute and curly but still looks neat and easily readable to me. I like to keep things from feeling too serious, my code included.

I wanted to use Cascadia Code, but using Migu due to the need of unicode kanji/kana for japanese.
Edit: been tempted to someday show in a presentation using hellvetica, but I usually don't show uncommited code.

I haven't really thought about fonts like that, I will definitely check out the one you use and be back with feedbacks. Haha.

I have been alternating between NovaMono for Powerline and Fira Code. Fira Code was my favorite for some years until I found Nova.

NP. It's my fave. I share it with all of my students and most if not all of them keep using it. Hopefully the author is getting a few bucks from donations at least! 💰
