Should likely have a “font” tag, however that tag does not exist.
I now use Adobe Source Code Pro after many years of Lucida Console then Consolas.
Same here, though it seems to have rendering issues in Visual Studio so I use Consolas at work.
Wow, I wasn’t aware that fixed-width coding fonts were a new thing! Thanks, Ars Technica.
To be fair, I know a lot of devs who were unfamiliar with the wonderful world of code oriented fonts until I introduced them to it. Some people just haven’t thought to look, and Hack is a good place to start.
I actually really like programming with proportional width fonts. But in languages that want you to play the indentation game, I’ve gotta plug M+ 1M because it’s an awesome font.
Personally, I would rather it be full-width instead of half-width, however, the M+ MN Type-1 looks nice as well.
This isn’t “free” but worth it in my opinion as a programmer/read text all day on screens person:
Pragmata pro is probably one of the best investments I’ve made for my work and eyes. Very well done for programming related and really good glyph support.
If you follow the links, it turns out to be a new derivation in the Bitstream Vera Sans / DejaVu family. Cool looking zero.
It is more or less just DejaVu Sans Mono but with the i, 0, and comma changed a bit, and the spacing and hinting fucked up.

I’m no designer/font expert, but I think I prefer Hack’s spacing.
How can you tell there’s hinting problems? I have a lot of trouble discerning it, despite reading the wikipedia article on it.
edit: oh, and thanks for the gif!
