Is there any non-bitmap monospaced font that isn't shit ?
For example I just tried Fira Mono and at the same pixel size of my current bitmap font it uses double the screen space.
Is there anyone here who's been using bitmap fonts their whole life and recently switched to something non-bitmap ? Help me please.

Btw i love how easy it's to find expensive paid fonts by just adding ext:ttf to your Google query. Thanks specially to Github users.

Inconsolata and Anonymous Pro are the best i've ever tried. Give those a go.

For anyone looking for bitmap/pixely fonts, try Terminus.

I use a font called Aneu. Made by the cute asian girl from Lainchan. It's gone off the internet now, I should probably back it up to IPFS. Here's an example in emacs, I'm writing some VHDL at the moment, if you want the font lmk (I converted it to a bunch of formats)

Do you need its sources? It's not like an executable code. Just steal the fucking font and use it.

Wyatt Hernandez

It's not like an executable code.
Actually, font rendering is srs bzns. It's surprisingly complex and there are new exploits found all the time.

One of the first results of "font rendering vulnerability": googleprojectzero.blogspot.sk/2015/07/one-font-vulnerability-to-rule-them-all.html

Matthew Brown

but it's the problem of shitty font rendering software (which should be written in Rust btw).
it's the same as blaming video files for faults in crappy H.264 decoders, etc.

Jonathan King
Jonathan King

also it seems to only affect Windoze.
so, not a problem for GNU/Linux and macOS master race?

While that may be so, the fact that random font files may be dangerous still stays true.

That was just an example.
And Windows is a rather extreme example because it renders fonts in the kernel (with the exception of Win10 where it was finally moved to userspace).
The damage done on Unix would be more limited, but can still be considerable if combined with other exploits. Plus not many people know fonts are exploitable so there's the element of surprise.

What are you using it on? OS, editor? Depending on the type of font rendering a font that looks good on one machine/editor, can look like shit on another.

Anyway,
Liberation mono
is my preferred non-bitmap font. Maybe it works for you too.

We always thought it degaussed our monitors, but we were really degaussing our hearts.

Ian Lopez

Proprietary doesn't mean closed source. And yes, the TTF is the source code (containing the paths and various metrics), to be interpreted by the renderer.

This is actually true. I used to spend a ton of time ricing and keeping shit organized. Now I don't have time for that shit. Sure, my shit is fucking everywhere and horribly organized, but I know where everything is/how it works/ect better without the training wheels on.

It's like you faggots don't use fonts.
A few may not be monospaced, but may have monospaced variants - marked (m?)
< slick as f-k
Share Tech Mono
Gridnik - used in movie Ex-Machina, The Martian (m?)
Carbon - in movie The Martian (m?)
Automate - Carbon like (m?)
Isonorm 3098 - technical pen, draughting style for draughting code

< decent staples
Inconsolata
Consolas
Din - similar to Isonorm, but MANY variants to choose from. ff-din, din-pro, etc
Helvetica monospaced

< old skool
OCR A Extended 11 - Kredit Kard like style.
Perfect DOS VGA 437 - ANSI graphic display compatible
VT320
Ti92 plus PC
T93y
VCR OSD mono - ugly for me, but 8bit lovers might like it.
+Many various old typewriter fonts, similar to New Courier but with old style figures (= 'lowercase' numbers)

< MFD (multifunction flight display like, as in jet fighters, etc)
Crystal
Glass gauge
Letter Gothic - frequently used in tech graphics (m?)
MS33558 - used on flight instrumentation panels(m?)
