Today, news broke to me that there‘s a new monospace and ligature-capable font specifically for developers out there: JetBrains Mono.
I have given it a try, and instantly liked it very much. My first impression is that it‘s very smooth and balanced, no extravagances.
The font comes in four weights plus italics for each weight. It supports code-specific ligatures1.
And it‘s free.
- I‘m a big fan of ligatures in my development fonts. ↩
