Consolas or Lucida Console.
>>
>>52977494
Cucksolas isn't that bad I guess, but if you're implying that Lucida Cucksole is one of the best programming language than you're straight up lying to yourself. How can you sleep at night?

Before Consolas, I used Terminal.
I also like Terminal more than Consolas, but it can look silly sometimes.
Take that statement as you wish.

Just because it has "Pro" in it, doesn't mean that you are going to become a pro... same goes for the mac books made by Apple.

Monaco.

I like the Lowercase a. Commas, periods, zeros all distinct.

Inconsolata, best for coding, best for terminal and free.
>>
>>52978089
Hands down Inconsolata is the best font. 8/8
>>
>>52978089
Looks like it would look like shit when scaled down.
>>
>>52978135
It does not, it is readable as fuck even if you use it on size 4 or something.
>>
>>52978174
> I use size 4
I actually use size 1 you fuck.
>>
Arial master race
>>
>>52978355
So, you're one of those freaks...
>>
>>52978197
Nigga what?
I use fucking size 14, what is wrong with you?
>>
>>52978197
>I actually use size 1 you fuck.

Inconsolata probably won't look good on anything less than size 4
>>
>>52978439
Exactly my point when I said

I don't really care as long as it's monospace and there's a clear distinction between l and I and 0 and O.
>>
>>52977175
You don't understand the difference between free as free beer an free as freedom
>>
>>52978757
"Free as in beer" = gratis.
"Free as in freedom" = libre.
Now stop using "free as in X" construct.

>>52978482
size 8 is minimum comfortable font size at 1.2 ft from the screen ( http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_display_board_fonts.shtml ) Most people prefer text to be 10, 11, or 12 points at this distance.

with the same scale size 4 would be minimum comfortable at about 7 inches from the screen. Many people like to sit closer to the screen than 7 inches, but if you sit 3-4 inches from the screen size 4 would be a comfortable size. no need to have it size 1. It's often not possible to choose anything below 8 by default anyway.

>>52979502
you're right anon, everything should be free and rely on donations, I'm sure game devs would put in tons more effort knowing they might make some money
>>
I've been using this for a while
>>
Most of the font posted here are pretty bad for coding. The easy test is to look at the l (lowercase L), 1 (the number) and I (uppercase i). If they look too similar, well, that's a shitty programming font, objectively speaking. Not that it won't work, but that it won't be as great as it could be.

>>52979538
>>52978619
>>52977903
these are the only ones that could eventually say that they are "programming" fonts
>>
>>52979533
obviously it should be free. How else am i supposed to buy all my anime memorabilia and body pillows and flesh lights if I have to keep paying 60 fucking bucks for a game? Use some semblance of logic here, please anon.
>>
>>52979438
It's a mix I made of Fantasque Sans Mono for single width characters and Migu 1M for the rest (CJK, symbols, etc.).
Just get Fantasque Sans Mono.

>>52979443
Sublime Text 2, I got the license from my very good friend Andrew Weber.

I'm also using gdipp for the actual font rendering.
>>
>>52979658
I have some sublime questions you might be able to help with, hope you don't mind

If I buy a license do I get sublime 2+ i.e I could also use it on 3, also is there pc limits I mean if I have it on 5 pcs can only 2 use it at the same time or something? also how long have you been using it and would you recommend?
>>
>>52979771
https://www.sublimetext.com/buy
Yes and as long as you're the user you can use it on as many computers as you wish. I don't think the developers are going to come and check if you're the guy currently on the computer though.

I haven't bought my copy though, Anon.

I've been using it for around 2 years now and it's pretty cool, it's become my daily driver at home and at work. It has many add-ons available and a package downloader/manager for these.

Had been using Notepad++ for quick editing until then.
I still have emacs installed and use it from time to time.
>>
>>52979839
thanks for all the help, going to use it for a couple weeks and if I like it buy it, might share my copy with a friend for 25% cost or something
>>
>>52977005
Courier New is the sheer materialization of programming itself. Just look at it; its perfect in every way.
>>
>>52979964
OP Here, finally someone who actually has the eyes of a programmer, and can see that Courier new is actually the best font ever.
>>
11p Terminal or bust.
