The rather special coding font
Dank Mono is the coding font you want. Designed for aesthetes with code and Retina displays in mind. Delightful ligatures and an italic variant.
Lovable 😍 - Perfect glyph details - Highly optimized for high resolution display - Frequent updates and fixes +1Cons:
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.Mo Rajabifard has used this product for one week.
Nice aesthetics if you're a fan of Fira, italic versionCons:
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 🤷🏻♂️Max has never used this product.
reasonable good lookingCons:
$40 price tag
while I would give this font a ride I just could not justify $40 purchase on font with so many open-source and free alternative. It's just a monospaced font after all, not a programming tool.Roman Dubinin has never used this product.
1) Dankness 2) The "f" character 3) The ligatures rockCons:
You use it to write code. Boo.
My code has never looked more spiffing.
I was initially concerned that ligatures would be confusing, but nothing could be further from the case: if anything I'm concerned about not having the visual affordance now!
I love it.Oliver Turner has used this product for one month.
It's a monospace font that looks goodCons:
It's not free
While I understand that it's okay to get paid for your hard work, with all the opensource alternatives I find it too bad to ask for money when it's clearly not made for businesses. Welp, good work anyway.Eli Or has never used this product.
Helps raising awareness on the importance of a good font.Cons:
Price. Free, quality competition exists.
40$ 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...

it actually looks coolCons:
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.muhammad khalil has never used this product.
We have decent free fonts to work with why would anyone pay 40 bucks to use a font in his editor ?Tsvetan Topalov has never used this product.
fira is the best
why would I change fira for this?
£40 for a font... really?

good looking fontCons:
$40 for non commercial

Great ligatures, fun italics, great arrow/comparison letterformsCons:
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 readIan Svoboda 💻📱🍸 has used this product for one week.
