New Coding Font from Github called Monaspace

Summary of my bookmarked links from Nov 11th, 2023


  • Monaspace

    Monaspace is an innovative superfamily of fonts designed specifically for coding. It features five distinct fonts, each with three variable axes, offering a more expressive palette for code display and editing. Unlike traditional monospaced fonts, which are incompatible due to differing metrics, Monaspace fonts are designed for seamless mixing and matching, allowing for more structured and hierarchical code interfaces. The system also introduces a novel technique called "Texture Healing", which addresses the uneven texture issue inherent in monospaced typefaces. This method evens out the density of monospaced type, preserving the monospace grid while requiring no new software or editor plugins​​​​​​.
