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 github.com/tonsky/FiraCode
fonts.google.com/specimen/Fira

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.

for the record, some new "coding ligatures" fonts that have decent international support:

Iosevka
typeof.net/Iosevka/

agave
github.com/agarick/agave

Hasklig
github.com/i-tu/Hasklig
(from parent Source Code Pro)

Mensch
robey.lag.net/2010/06/21/mensc
(from parent Menlo)

Victor Mono
rubjo.github.io/victor-mono/

found via programmingfonts.org/

I like the _idea_ of Victor Mono but I think Iosevka looks better…none of them are as cute as Fira :(

@elilla Also the recently-released “Recursive” font: recursive.design/.

@skalyan this looks cool, and has the same kind of programmability as iosevka (I like this new trend!) but I think I'll side with iosevka as being cuter (check out these samples of mine in Fira mode:
1 queer.party/@elilla/1045810890
2 queer.party/@elilla/1045803861
)

@elilla Wait, you use Emacs too? I’m not sure I knew this.

I haven’t used plain Emacs for a long time, though (I used Spacemacs for a while, but have recently started converting to Doom Emacs.)
