Typefaces designed for programmers aren’t a new idea, but I’m particularly taken with Iosevka, a monospace coding typeface that’s completely generated using Node.js.
The project – which is inspired by existing coding typefaces Pragmata Pro, M+ and PF DIN Mono – aims to produce characters that “have a narrow shape to be space efficient and compatible to Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters.”
It’s up to Version 0.0.3 and you can check out all the previous releases here as well as fork the code used to generate them on GitHub.
Iosevka is currently available as regular, bold, italic and bold italic fonts. Its creators say the 0.1.0 release will be compatible with the WGL-4 character set.
