I've been looking around for good monospace fonts, and found
a new favorite today: Office Code Pro:
https://github.com/nathco/Office-Code-Pro

what are some of your favorite monospace fonts that you use in your
editors/terminals/IDEs?

>1 brendantcc @ 2018/09/10 22:35

cringe all you want, but i use the default on the windows command prompts - consolas

Two that I really like are Hack[0] and Fira Code[1], the latter being my monospace font of choice today.

Fira code's ligature idea is pretty interesting, I've never seen anything
like it before

My favorite is still Plex Mono:

https://github.com/ibm/plex

~arne also recommended input mono which is also quite nice

Monaco: https://github.com/todylu/monaco.ttf
Fantasque Sans Mono: https://github.com/belluzj/fantasque-sans
envypn (bitmap): https://github.com/Tecate/bitmap-fonts/tree/master/bitmap/envypn-font

Right now I use Fantasque for all my main terminal and emacs. Sometimes I use xterm with 12pt envypn to save some screen space.

monaco looks really neat! I like the more curved styles, not every
monospaced font has to look angular like a typewriter

I love Anka/Coder.

I've used the Office Code Pro D variant for quite some time now, 
and I keep reverting back to it after trying other fonts.

+1 for fantasque sans mono. I keep trying other fonts but it's just so readable against a dark background, even with iffy close-up vision.

I'm using Terminus right now for Termite. It's nice, clean, and non-aliased
(which some people might not prefer but I really like how it looks)

I switched from Source Code Pro (our work laptops come with Adobe's
Source family bc branding) to IBM Plex Mono. I like it because it's very
readable and renders nicely on screens but has that retro IBM Selectric
charm. There are fairly good Prestige Elite fonts out there but they're all more
designed for word processing and don't work well in a console.

>12 anonymous @ 2019/06/09 15:13

I am using Inconsolata right now

I used to use Hack a lot, but lately I have been enjoying Ubuntu Mono incredibly much. I use it in my Gentoo daily driver as well as my Windows build VM.

>14 exr @ 2019/09/16 14:05

I use PragmataPro Mono, for me it is incredibly readable. I have tried with Hack and other fonts already mentioned, but my eyes love this one.

>15 pants @ 2019/09/16 18:49

I really like the artwiz fonts: http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/

They are bitmap fonts designed at the single pixel size.

Right now I'm using lime, which is a 5x10 fixed width font. Tiny, but very readable!

>16 exr @ 2019/09/17 11:11

Never heard about them. Thanks for sharing, I will try both :)

I love Iosevka:

>18 computer t-shirts @ 2019/09/18 16:43

I have used Hack (mentioned above) for a good while and I love it

I also prefer Input Mono

>20 gmw @ 2019/11/10 21:41

Just switched to DejaVu Sans Code (https://github.com/SSNikolaevich/DejaVuSansCode). 
I love the ligatures, check their page for examples.

>21 mhd @ 2019/11/14 08:11

In the beginning, I've used Lucida Typewriter for quite a while.
The regular old X11 Type 1 font.
For TTF, I went with Inconsolata mostly.

In the last few years, I've been switching a bit more, as I work
with different operating systems and displays and haven't really
settled in. Monaco was great on regular Mac displays (non-AA),
these days I'm liking Iosevka's more condensed display at greater
sizes.

But lately I've been working against font bikeshedding in the
weirdest way:

Fantasque Sans Mono. EVERYWHERE :)

>23 a @ 2019/12/17 14:36

Inconsolata is such a good font. I've been using it for VSCode and tera term. >>12

I use 12pt Terminus most of the time myself, it's fantastic! In things other than terminals I use Fantasque Sans Mono, just because I like the aesthetic.

>25 stephanstanisic @ 2020/01/01 19:32

I'd say Roboto everything. So for me it would be Roboto Mono[0]. I am drifting from Roboto on the sans-serif front, sinc I am in love with the Inter[1] font. This font **customizable**! Take a look if you want.

wow cool i didint know customizable fonts existed!

>27 guy @ 2020/01/11 01:28

I was full-on Anonymous Pro for several years, then switched over to Envy Code at some point. Lately, I've been pretty happy with Menlo, actually. Never liked the parens in Monaco (functions without args were confusing to look at), so loving that change. To my eye, Menlo looks as close to a "plain" font as I can get and, generally speaking, good design goes unnoticed because that's what makes it good :)

>28 thecomputergeek @ 2020/01/11 15:33

I use Determination Sans. IDK if it's monospace or not.

>29 blitzkraft @ 2020/01/15 00:22

I love Iosevka. Previously Source Code pro.

>30 artyr3 @ 2020/01/15 03:38

Plex Mono. 

Also iA Writer's monospace font.
Which is actually just Plex Mono with a different "t" and "g".

New font - jetbrains mono: https://www.jetbrains.com/lp/mono/ 

Seems good.

>32 antharia @ 2020/01/23 11:14

Great thread, you typo nerds ! ;)

Just read the first posts and switched from Inconsola to Office Code Pro.

After switching to linux, I've starrted to like Termius 14pt. I use it on everything.

I'm really liking JetBrains Mono

feels similar to my other favorite, Input Mono but is open-sourced
