After a long time with Monaco, I've been trying a few fonts with programming ligatures, currently testing out:
Perhaps one day I'll pay the $200 for:
A co-worker used this font. It was super nice to look at, and the ‘fancy’ comments are easier on the eyes.
Try PT Mono (macos). Not as good as Operator, but a very good and free alternative.
I use Fira Code as well. I also like Input, which is a proportional font designed for programming (supported in IDEs such as Visual Studio, Eclipse, Xcode).
Font Playground lists a lot of popular fonts for programming. Didn't list Fira Code, Consolas, nor Input though.
A bunch more programming suitable fonts (50+ fonts) and a nice browser comparison at Programming Fonts. Each font has a link to where to get it.
Another programmer font list, with 100+ fonts: Best Programming Fonts. Doesn't have an interactive display of the fonts, but has an extensive list, and provides some pro/con bullet points on each font, and a link for getting the font.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
