Sometimes I feel like the only person who absolutely does not want ligatures in my programming font. I much prefer seeing exactly the characters I typed. I don't want to risk reading something wrong because a ligature changed what I expected to see.
Same, but TBF after decades of reading code without ligatures I'm pretty accustomed to equating != with ≠.
You're not alone :D
Nah you're not alone. I love ligatures but I don't like them in my code. Some things in Fira Code are nice (like the multiplication × for hexadecimals) but it would be nice to have that while switching off the ligatures.
I agree exactly. I'd rather see what I typed.
You are not alone Tom. It's a matter for preference for me.
How long did you give it, and what languages?
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.
