coders and non-coders of the fediverse: what is your **favorite ever** monospaced font?
(boosts? i like monospaced fonts.)
boosts, but also REPLIES ;)
me myself i've been using Dina for some time now, but i quite like cozette and ypn envypn. if only they had italics
@olivia using cozette but i'd try tamzen if it had the same glyph coverage
@ensa cozette is very sexy, right? missing italics for now, but i'm hoping they'll get there soon!
@olivia I do love Terminus.
@antifuchs what size you think it looks best?
@olivia ah! Ohh I’ve not used it since I had a Linux laptop. But I think the 10px size was great there (it was a 1440px vertical res screen)
@antifuchs some of these bitmap-like fonts like terminus sometimes seem to be they get kinda LARGE in bigger sizes, and for me also a bit strange. but when they are too small i can barely read them haha
@antifuchs oh, that IS true. but i might be a little addicted to bitmap looking fonts now? i wonder if there's going back now >.<
@olivia that’s extremely fair - wish somebody made a vector font with bitmap edges
@antifuchs cozette has cozettevector, might be something like that.
i used iosevka for some time as well before the bitmap bug bit me.
@olivia probably roboto mono

@olivia I've been using Hack for a few years. It's nice, but it doesn't have ligatures and I haven't really shopped around for fonts.
@operand hmmm interesting. i've seen a few people say they like this one
@olivia There's only one thing I can say for sure about Hack: I would really miss that beautiful dotted 0 if I had to use another font.
@operand ooooh you are a dotted zero kinda of person 😆
@operand @olivia note that you can easily customize Hack
@kameleonidas another point goes to hack! :)
@julio didn't know that one. though it probably takes some getting used to serif monospaced fonts, i would imagine
@olivia I've always used serif fonts for writing assignments and they're easier for me to read. So, it was pretty natural to use a serif mono font when I started coding
@olivia I couldn't even name a single monospace font, defaults all the way
@felix we both knew that question was obviously not directed at you
@olivia i will respond anyway :p
@chpietsch that is still my favorite non-bitmapy font, yeah. so pretty.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
