Awesome fonts to code

Fonts are awesome.

Alt Text

We spend a lot of time interacting with type. They influence our thinking, alter trust, determine context, and play with our productivity.

In these weird times where our screen times skyrocket. We should do something to ease our contextual burden and increase our productivity.

This is a list of awesome fonts that will make your code look even more elegant and concise (and makes your more productive 🤞).

Note: This is a personal favourite list (and almost all of them are mono). Please feel free to comment your favourite.

This one is from the Jetbrains. They already have cool abstract images in their IDE startups. The font is bit oversized but once again it is awesome.

It is sharp, bit taller. But the font looks great even in low resolution displays.

Cascadia Code

Windows was the first machine that I ever had. And I used it for a long time at my work (now don't judge me). So this one was my long time favourite. Recently I saw they have open sourced it and it brings back a lot of memories.
