    Pros: 

    Lovable 😍 - Perfect glyph details - Highly optimized for high resolution display - Frequent updates and fixes +1

    Cons: 

    Nothing! If any, I've seen he is all ears to listen and fix them ASAP!

    Phil gave me a beta preview before the release, I didn't set it as the default font for a couple day. I was terrified to try a new font, I thought I cannot get used to it soon. (You probably think the same)

    But hell I WAS WRONG! 😍

    I got used to this font in 1 day! I can't go back to "Operator Mono" (I was using it), or Menlo now.

    The fact that Phil is actively releasing updates and listening to users, is very promising. That is #1 reason I tried it at first.

    Pros: 

    Nice aesthetics if you're a fan of Fira, italic version

    Cons: 

    Costs more than "Borda" design font.

    It looks really good if you're a fan of certain things about your fonts. Also italic version is something some people will definitely enjoy.

    But nothing beats Menlo in my book 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Pros: 

    reasonable good looking

    Cons: 

    $40 price tag

    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.

    Pros: 

    1) Dankness 2) The "f" character 3) The ligatures rock

    Cons: 

    You use it to write code. Boo.

    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.

    Pros: 

    It's a monospace font that looks good

    Cons: 

    It's not free

    While I understand that it's okay to get paid for your hard work, with all the opensource alternatives I find it too bad to ask for money when it's clearly not made for businesses. Welp, good work anyway.

    Pros: 

    Helps raising awareness on the importance of a good font.

    Cons: 

    Price. Free, quality competition exists.

    40$ is definitely too pricey when the free, high quality "Fira Code" exists https://github.com/tonsky/FiraCode

    I'm using Fira Code for several years, and only those not aware of free alternatives would risk buying this font. I wouldn't buy this without testing it first on my code. Too bad the 40$ tag is preventing me from doing that...

  • muhammad khalilFront-end developer @creiden
    Pros: 

    it actually looks cool

    Cons: 

    why i would pay 40$ to get it.

    we as developers look at the screen all the time so colors and fonts are important thing to us so, i dedicate time to customize my editor to look comfort to me, but i will not spend 40$ to get just a font and there's an alternative open-source and free. it just doesn't make sense.

    Pros: 

    Nice looking

    Cons: 

    $40 ?!

    We have decent free fonts to work with why would anyone pay 40 bucks to use a font in his editor ?

    Pros: 

    none

    Cons: 

    fira is the best

    why would I change fira for this?

    £40 for a font... really?

    Why would you spend £40 for a font?

    Pros: 

    Great ligatures, fun italics, great arrow/comparison letterforms

    Cons: 

    It costs money

    I love this font. It’s really jazzed up my terminal and IDE. I find it makes my code easier to scan and more enjoyable to read
