FiraCode - Monospaced font with programming ligatures

  •    Clojure

Programmers use a lot of symbols, often encoded with several characters. For the human brain, sequences like ->, <= or := are single logical tokens, even if they take two or three characters on the screen. Your eye spends a non-zero amount of energy to scan, parse and join multiple characters into a single logical one. Ideally, all programming languages should be designed with full-fledged Unicode symbols for operators, but that’s not the case yet. Fira Code is an extension of the Fira Mono font containing a set of ligatures for common programming multi-character combinations. This is just a font rendering feature: underlying code remains ASCII-compatible. This helps to read and understand code faster. For some frequent sequences like .. or //, ligatures allow us to correct spacing.

3270font - A 3270 font in a modern format

  •    Makefile

This font is derived from the x3270 font, which, in turn, was translated from the one in Georgia Tech's 3270tool, which was itself hand-copied from a 3270 series terminal. I built it because I felt terminals deserve to be pretty. The .sfd font file contains a x3270 bitmap font that was used for guidance. If you are running Debian or Ubuntu and you don't want to mess with building your font files, you can simply apt-get install fonts-3270 (It's available from the Debian (https://packages.debian.org/sid/fonts/fonts-3270) and Ubuntu (http://packages.ubuntu.com/zesty/fonts-3270) package repos at https://packages.debian.org/sid/fonts/fonts-3270 and http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/fonts/fonts-3270, although the packaged version may not be the latest version, but it's good enough for most purposes. For those who don't have the luxury of a proper system-managed package, Adobe Type 1, TTF, OTF and WOFF versions are available for download on http://s3.amazonaws.com/3270font/3270_fonts_b3b4b7d.zip (although this URL may not always reflect the latest version).

operator-mono-lig - Add ligatures to Operator Mono similar to Fira Code

fixedsys - Fixedsys Excelsior font with programming ligatures

  •    Makefile

I was always jealous for folks using Fira Code, Hasklig or Monoid fonts, but my problem is that I have a hard time reading (not even mentioning writing) a computer program in anything but 8x16 font. I probably spent too much time with older computers. So after fighting and losing an uphill battle with Glyph2, Fontlab and Fontforge I discovered TTX and was able to finally stop being jealous. This current release has almost everything I use regularly. Feel free to request in the issues. PRs are of course more than welcome. I hope I'm not the only crazy guy on the internet using 8x16 font for consoles and text editing.

Hasklig - Hasklig - a code font with monospaced ligatures

  •    Python

Programming languages are limited to relatively few characters. As a result, combined character operators surfaced quite early, such as the widely used arrow (->), comprised of a hyphen and greater sign. It looks like an arrow if you know the analogy and squint a bit. Composite glyphs are problematic in languages such as Haskell which utilize these complicated operators (=> -< >>= etc.) extensively. The readability of such complex code improves with pretty printing. Academic articles featuring Haskell code often use lhs2tex to achieve an appealing rendering, but it is of no use when programming.


awesome-terminal-fonts - Tools and instructions on how to have awesome symbols in a terminal with a monospace font

  •    Shell

Referring to glyphs by codepints (eg. \uf00c) in your scripts or shell configuration it's not recommended because icon fonts like Font Awesome use code points ranges those ranges are not disciplined by the unicode consortium, every font can associate every glyphs to those codepoints. This means that Font Awesome can choose to move glyphs around freely, today \uf00c is associated to the check symbol, tomorrow it can be associated to something else. Moreover, more than one icon font can use the same codepoint for different glyphs and if we want to use them both we need to move one of them. So, if you use a codepoint to refer to a glyph after an update that codepoint can point to another glyph. To avoid this situation you can use the font maps in the ./build directory, font maps are scripts which define shell variables that give names to glyphs, by sourcing those files in your shell you can refer to glyphs by name (eg. $CODEPOINT_OF_AWESOME_CHECK).

webfontloader - Web Font Loader gives you added control when using linked fonts via @font-face.

  •    Javascript

Web Font Loader gives you added control when using linked fonts via @font-face. It provides a common interface to loading fonts regardless of the source, then adds a standard set of events you may use to control the loading experience. The Web Font Loader is able to load fonts from Google Fonts, Typekit, Fonts.com, and Fontdeck, as well as self-hosted web fonts. It is co-developed by Google and Typekit. To use the Web Font Loader library, just include it in your page and tell it which fonts to load. For example, you could load fonts from Google Fonts using the Web Font Loader hosted on Google Hosted Libraries using the following code.

The AFDKO tools are widely used for font development today, and are part of most font editor applications.

web-font-loading-recipes - A bunch of demos for different web font loading strategies

  •    HTML

A bunch of demos for different web font loading strategies. Some of these are included on A Comprehensive Guide to Font Loading Strategies, some of them are more experimental. As web fonts are a progressive enhancement and with increasing support for the CSS Font Loading API, we can look forward to a time in which we won’t need to inline a polyfill into the header (for even faster font loading). The simplified CSS Font Loading API recipes are the defaults, but polyfilled versions are included for broader browser support. In practice this means only the polyfilled versions will show web fonts in Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers (which do not have support for the CSS Font Loading API).

nerd-fonts - :abcd: Iconic font aggregator, collection, and patcher

fontfaceobserver - Webfont loading. Simple, small, and efficient.

  •    Javascript

Font Face Observer is a small @font-face loader and monitor (3.5KB minified and 1.3KB gzipped) compatible with any webfont service. It will monitor when a webfont is loaded and notify you. It does not limit you in any way in where, when, or how you load your webfonts. Unlike the Web Font Loader Font Face Observer uses scroll events to detect font loads efficiently and with minimum overhead. The FontFaceObserver constructor takes two arguments: the font-family name (required) and an object describing the variation (optional). The object can contain weight, style, and stretch properties. If a property is not present it will default to normal. To start loading the font, call the load method. It'll immediately return a new Promise that resolves when the font is loaded and rejected when the font fails to load.
