I have a love for nice fonts.
# Reading and Writing Fonts
- Atkinson Hyperlegible (mentioned Your favourite fonts choice and why? thread - Share & showcase - Obsidian Forum )
- iA Writer Quattro
- Inter - Default of Obsidian and used also at Airbyte website
- Fonts - DYSLEXIA which makes reading easier for people with problems (from Tobias Schäuble)
- Piazzolla, serif; from How to treat monospace alike fonts in a tech blog? - Pimp my Type

# Programming Fonts
Here are some tips for programming (from 15 Best Programming Fonts for Better Coding):
- Clear and easy-to-read characters to reduce eye strain when spending hours looking at hundreds of lines of code.
- Makes a clear distinction between commonly-confused characters such as the letter “O” and the number “0” or the lowercase “L” and the number “1”.
- Ligatures or extra whitespace for commonly-used symbols in popular programming languages – not for everyone, but others love it.
- Fonts with multiple variations on how certain characters are handled are great, so you can pick and choose exactly the version you prefer.
Testing out fonts: Programming Fonts - Test Drive.
# Open Source Favorites
- Iosevka - My current one, 14.7k start on GitHub 😳
- Source Code Pro for Powerline - Adobe open source
- Cascadia Code - default font for the Windows Terminal and Visual Studio
Anonymous Pro for Powerline - I like
- Four styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic.
- Fixed width design.
- Various computer keyboard symbols.
- DOS box-drawing characters.
- Extended language support for most Latin-based Western and Central European languages, as well as Greek and Cyrillic.
