This page gives information on selecting fonts useful as coding fonts, e.g. source code in programming lan­gu­ages or web design languages.

A good coding font is absolutely critical for good coding productivity. There are several desiderata for choos­ing a cod­ing font:

I now use Input Mono as my coding font: it has a rich character set, distinct glyphs, extra-large punc­tu­a­tion, and is quite legible — though it has no ligatures, a feature I want only for pseudo-code. Be­fore us­ing the Input Mono font I used DejaVu Sans Mono, then Cascadia Code, then IBM Plex Mono, each a bit better for my purposes than the one before.

Note: the page Fonts Coding Fonts has sample code in a variety of coding fonts.
