Hey 👋 tell me, what is your favorite font for your editor? What font size???

Here’s mine:

Until a few days ago I used Consolas, but decided to change to increase readability.

  • Font: Fira Code.
  • Size: 13px on 27” external monitor, 15px on 15” laptop.

Futa code is one of the best but I also like jetbrains mono I think you should try that too.

Monitor is 24" and 1920x1080, I can work with minimum like 18 font size; big desk, weak eyes, 22 is fine for me. And, Iosevka is more compact from Fira Code, horizontally.

I really like Cascadia Code from Microsoft.
It's their font for the new Windows Terminal
