JetBrains Mono: A free and open source typeface for developers | JetBrains: Developer Tools for Professionals and Teams

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/09/30

Font I want to try out: [Archive.is] JetBrains Mono: A free and open source typeface for developers | JetBrains: Developer Tools for Professionals and Teams.

It has a large X-height and is sans serif, just like the lovely [WayBack] Lucida Console font, which I have been using for almost 3 decades.

So I wonder if JetBrains Mono can convince me to switch away from Lucida Console: no other monospaced font has convinced me yet (:

Via: [Archive.is] Matt Ellis on Twitter: “JetBrains Mono. A really nice, open source, ligature friendly, developer typeface. I’ve been using this for a while now, it’s my default font. And a really cool landing page! “

JetBrains is discussing on how to update the Chocolaty support, see the twitter posts below:

Interesting font comparison site (Courier New versus Lucida Console versus Consolas)

Font comparisons:

Based on this, I found more font identification sites:

I tried both at  and  (used bySource: “techorama” – Google Search), but only WhatTheFont managed to get the glyphs and font similar fonts on both, and Matcherator got the glyphs wrong in both images, even after manually cropping.

Need to look at monospaced programmers fonts again

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/27

At the time of looking, FiraCode would not work in Delphi but would in Visual Studio. Reminder for me to look at it again: [WayBack] GitHub – tonsky/FiraCode: Monospaced font with programming ligatures.

A cool feature of the font is that it has ligatures for common multi-character combinations like := or ...

Back when scheduling this, I was still at Lucida Console because of its large x-height and small line spacing.

It is time to revisit my font choice, so lets include at least these candidates:

belluzj/fantasque-sans: A font family with a great monospaced variant for programmers.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/11

On my list of mono-spaced programmer fonts to try (and see how it compares to my beloved [WaybackLucida Console):

[Wayback] fantasque-sans – A font family with a great monospaced variant for programmers (yes I know it was called Comic Sans Neue Mono, but don’t extend your Comic Sans hatred there).

Source: [WaybackFantasque Sans Mono:

Fantasque Sans Mono: A programming font, designed with functionality in mind, and with some wibbly-wobbly handwriting-like fuzziness that makes it unassumingly cool. Development hosted on Github: [Waybackhttps://github.com/belluzj/fantasque-sans OFL (SIL Open Font License). Category: Monospaced

Another font on that list is [Wayback/Archive.is] Hack where I have to do a bit work on fiddling with line spacing.

These are for my TODO:
