In this article, I will be introducing you to 20 of the amazing and best Coding fonts out there, some of which you might have/haven’t hear.
As Developers, We spend a lot of time with our computers writing codes and there are certain factors that affect our productivity.
Most developers prefer dark mode (I suppose you do too). Fonts can also be an issue, to avoid bugs or perhaps limit bugs it is important to use clean and clear fonts that allow you to see your codes better.
So, let’s get started with the list
1. Fira Code
FIRA Code is free, comes with a lot of amazing ligatures, It is easily incorporated into Visual Studio code and a lot of developers seem to love it.
Source Code Pro is free, it is designed for UI environments. Developers are really “crazy” about it. A Developer even tattooed it on his arm.
3. Victor Mono
Victor Mono is free and comes with semi-connected cursive italics. It’s an amazing font, try to donate to them if you like it.
Inconsolata, also free, comes with ligatures for a great coding experience, it is an open-source alternative for Consolas.
Monaco is a monospaced sans serif font that comes with Mac OS. Some video tutorials might teach you how to install on Linux but it’s not really approved.
6. Dank Mono
Dank Mono is an amazing font that comes with ligatures for a fair amount of 40$. It’s worth it if you can afford it.
7. Ubuntu mono

Iosevka has made a lot of top ten lists, it’s available for all computer OS, you can always find it, it’s free as well.
10. Operator mono
Operator mono cones with a huge price of 200$ but I daresay it’s worth it, it comes with significant features, like syntax looking very different from each other in terms of style and color, you could easily detect a bug.

Hermit is designed specifically for coding, it’s clear, pragmatic and very readable. It’s also free.
