monospace font recommendation
Fira Code makes a big deal of their programming ligatures, but I like it because it’s sans and readable and light but cute https://github.com/tonsky/FiraCode
look at that open-tail kitty ‹g› :)
sadly, for multilingual users, it has only the most common European precomposed chars (no ‹ẽ› or ‹ǎ› for ex.). curiously, combining sequences look fine for most of them.
my decision re: monospace font recommendation
iosevka is programatically flexible and comes in a number of styles mimicking other fonts, including Fira (style SS05).
I find that Iosevka SS05 at a large point size for my old eyes (16) is a great balance between attractiveness and being able to use IPA/pīnyīn/Viet/etc. =)
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
