Is there anything better than PT Mono for hacking with your emacs for hours on end?


Terminus: the font to rule them all except CJK, I use Monafont here.


Yes, Hack Liga

plebian; utterly plebian.

I thought you were asking about actually writing your own font. I was disappointed.

Terminus is the only correct font to use when programming.

I'm sorry for all you homos who don't use it.


courier new





Yes, doing the same but with Hack font



I used Terminus for a long time but lately I have been using Iosevka. It's pleasant.




looks nice


I don't even know the name of the font I'm using. goml nerds.


Workplace Console Classic by Alex Taylor has been very nice to use for me.



Only white men can appreciate the ubiquity of Times New Roman.

The weird looking Sony font is pretty rad, inconsolata for actual work tho. Very similar to pic related not sure if it's the same.



Was it a rage quit or save scumming?

I used to use Source Code Pro, but I've been using Liberation Mono since someone on this board had recommended it. Here's a snippet of my StarCraft 2 bot, written in AutoHotkey, using the SciTE4AutoHotkey editor.

Thanks, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Consolas is also decent.

i.. i don't get it..



Not sure what he doesn't like but in my opinion:

* Many movements are too shallow (e.g. the shoulder on the 2 and the leg on the 9 should dive deeper)

* The zero slash is too horizontal

* I don't like the 3 to have a horizontal top arm

This is all subjective, however, and whatever font allows YOU to read faster and understand more accurately is the one YOU should use, regardless of what others prefer.



which font do you use?



Very inconsistent. Depending on the use, application and rasterizer (some fonts don't render well everywhere), I've got Inconsolata, Terminus, the Linux virtual console font, Times New Roman and the default X fonts. While I have preferences, I've never found a single typeface that matches all of them and sometimes I don't care enough to change the defaults.

Actually, there was a decent-looking font you could configure and generate where you picked the style of each character (dashed/dotted/empty zero, loopy or round, etc.) but I never got around to making mine and I'm not sure where I saved the link.



>decent-looking font you could configure and generate where you picked the style of each character

I believe it was either https://github.com/be5invis/Iosevka or maybe http://input.fontbureau.com/download/ but they both look like shit to me right now so whatever. Maybe you'll like them.



>object-oriented code

spoiler that shit, jesus christ


Currently I'm switching between this two:

Code New Roman


> This font improved and target to Mac OS Western New Roman, MONACO, Windows Consolas/Lusida Consolas, ABeeZee and Bitstream Vera Sans Mono

There's also a Nerd Font variant for this

Courier Code


>Courier Code is Bitstream's Courier 10 Pitch with two minor modification. The lowercase "L" has been altered to distinguish it more clearly from the number one. The zero has been modified to more clearly distinguish it from the uppercase "O". These changes make it more suitable for use in programming.



This is nice. I'll take it for a ride. Thanks, Russia.




Most people who care about the machine-side of software engineering seem to "grow out" of OOP after a while, favoring paradigms or approaches that are better suited to each of their problems, e.g. going towards (sometimes purely) being data-driven or functional. There's really no need for you to jump off the boat, though. You'll naturally be drawn off if you ever need to be drawn off. If that's never, that's fine as well, despite what others might tell you. Just do what gets you the results you want and be on the lookout for improvements in comfort, productivity and enjoyment.


Liberation mono.

The default monospace

Font tasting notes for fonts that I didn't reject immediately upon seeing:

* Terminus is an excellent bitmap font. A TTF conversion exists but is useless. No significant quirks.

* CNR is excellent with AA and seems to be hinted just enough to perform acceptably at certain sizes without it. The S/5 disambiguation isn't amazing. Parentheses are taller than other brackets.

* Inconsolata has weird vertical offsets and sizes for punctuation. The quotes are also oriented. Some of this is fixed by Inconsolata-g but this also introduces a dotted zero and other quirks. It's useless without AA and fuzzy on all rasterizers I've tried. Fake and gay for trash people. I'm ashamed that I have it installed.

* PT Mono is admirable with AA and remains quite good without it. Line spacing is a bit queer. Hash is strange with AA.

If I had to pick a single, standard font for every application, I'd go with PT Mono. It's very decent across the board. Otherwise, my preference is CNR for AA and Terminus without AA.

RE: the testing pattern, I reddit from le leddit https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/8jjq33/11_best_programming_fonts/dz0xxs5/ but it's nice.


So, what's the best monospace font for book reading that also doesn't look code-like with serifs or square angles?

Also, that doesn't have retarded characters.


I use the bastard os font firacode and furacode nerd font.



I don't see a need to grow out of it, when it's providing a useful encapsulation. It's an especially nice fit for automation programming. When I hear unsubstantiated criticism of OOP, I presume the author either doesn't understand it, or experienced someone's poor design, or failed to refactor their own code after trying to objectize everything. That's not OOP's fault though.



And that snippet is using functional programming. That's a first order function being defined.



I will now wait for you to claim that true OOP has never been tried like every soft brained undergrad.



This one's from google but I've had my fair share of rage quits thanks for asking


wasn't able to find the font "very inconsistent", is it in the gentoo repos? I know it's in the AUR


System tbh



I can point to many successful OOP projects. I'm sorry that you've had a bad experience.


Fira Mono.


Lucida Console for me. OCRA if I am feeling particularly spicy. Also Comic Sans.


>install new distro

>chromium fonts look decent for once

>xterm looks like ass

oh fuck off


>anyone using anything but default fonts

Enjoy your unique footprint.



>he doesn't value being unique

are you a bugman



fpbp, also gohufont is literally Terminus but better, unfortunately it's only available in two sizes and they are both pretty small.


Whatcha sliding Chaim?
