Source Code Pro -- free monospace Unicode font from Adobe

Post by pjj »

In case you haven't heard, a couple of days ago Adobe issued free (open source) monospace version of its (also free) Source Sans Pro (cf. https://blogs.adobe.com/typblography/20 ... e-pro.html):

I've been using it since then and, despite first dislike (I heavily got used to Courier!), it serves me well (I use 11 point font; it's a bit too big, while 10 point is in turn a tad too small, but since you can't have halves in RJ TE options, I decided bigger font was better for my eyes.)

I think you should give it a try, too. It can be download here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sourcecodepro.adobe/

Thanks, I will give it a try.

Currently I'm using Consolas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consolas), though that's a little too heavy and blurry I like it (feels cosy :))

After trying it for several days I have to say I like it. I guess the new beta renders fonts differently because at first the font was not that convincing.

"Slant is a collaboratively edited resource that helps you quickly make decisions." I just learnt it has nice presentation of the most popular fonts for coders, so for the record let me put it here: http://slant.co/topics/67/~what-are-the ... ming-fonts
