By very popular request, we’ve added the FiraCode Medium typeface to our editor font options!

FiraCode is a “monospaced font with programming ligatures” designed to help you read and understand code faster.

Programmers use a lot of symbols, often encoded with several characters. For the human brain, sequences like ->, <= or := are single logical tokens, even if they take two or three characters on the screen. Your eye spends a non-zero amount of energy to scan, parse and join multiple characters into a single logical one. …

Fira Code is an extension of the Fira Mono font containing a set of ligatures for common programming multi-character combinations.

You can enable it today in your editor settings:

turn it on in your editor font settings

Here are a couple of examples of FiraCode in action. Notice how it combines characters into easy-to-scan symbols. Nice, right?


Many thanks to Nikita Prokopov for making it open source!
