Source Code Pro

12.10.2012 by bsiegert@

There are a lot of monospaced fonts or “programmer’s fonts” available these days. Personally, I like neither the default “sans” that is generally used in Gtk applications nor the default monospace font in Mac OS X, Menlo. Both fonts are very similar, as Menlo is based on Bitstream Vera Sans.

Now, Adobe has just released an excellent monospaced OpenType font, called Source Code Pro, as open source. The fonts can be directly downloaded from their SourceForge page.

(Of course, if you are into non-antialiased fonts, nothing beats the “fixed” font included with X.)
