New Open Source monospaced font from Adobe: Source Code Pro

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/30

Last week, Adobe launched the monospaced Open Source font [Wayback] Source Code Pro designed by [WaybackPaul D. Hunt.

It is a follow-up of the (also designed by Paul) [WaybackSource Sans Pro family of Open Source Fonts which got released early last month.

I did a quick look to see if it would get the same number of vertical lines as Lucida Console does at 8 points.

  • Lucida Console: 50 lines
  • Source Code Pro: 40 lines

Too bad, as the general font design is awesome.

One big missing thing is italic/oblique, which is often used in code editors. Hopefully a future version will include those.

For embedding source code examples in documentation, it is very legible, so I will keep it installed on my system.

You can try Source Code Pro yourself as well: it is available [Waybackon SourceForge – that also hosts [WaybackOpen@Adobe – [Waybackon GitHub, where you can fork it, as well as [Waybackon Google Web Fonts, [Wayback] on typekit, and [Waybackon WebINK.
