Recently, I reinstalled my Windows and started to reconfigure my environment to use font I am using for last 5 years – Consolas
I decided to search what is the most popular font nowadays and found http://www.slant.co/topics/67/~programming-fonts where Consolas is quite popular – 249 upvotes. But I found another winner Source Code Pro with 362 upvotes.
So I decided to give it a chance.
I installed it via Chocolatey – https://chocolatey.org/packages/SourceCodePro
And started using it. And initially I did not like it – https://twitter.com/mnaoumov/status/673887576097468416?lang=en
Then I used to it in Visual Studio but I still looked ugly in Sublime Text and ConEmu
Then I found how to configure it to look nice in Sublime Text – https://github.com/Maximus5/ConEmu/issues/74#issuecomment-166576653
But it dependent on DirectWrite support which many apps don’t have.
I raised an issue for the font itself – https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro/issues/116 and they advised to use TTF font instead of OTF.
I checked and found that Chocolatey installed only OTF version. So I removed it and installed TTF manually from https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro/releases/latest
And now it is nice and charming everywhere
