Dank Mono is the coding font you want. Designed for aesthetes with code and Retina displays in mind. Delightful ligatures and an italic variant.
while I would give this font a ride I just could not justify $40 purchase on font with so many open-source and free alternative. It's just a monospaced font after all, not a programming tool.
reasonable good looking
$40 price tag
My code has never looked more spiffing.
I was initially concerned that ligatures would be confusing, but nothing could be further from the case: if anything I'm concerned about not having the visual affordance now!
I love it.
1) Dankness 2) The "f" character 3) The ligatures rock
You use it to write code. Boo.
