Reminds me a bit of mode 0 on the BBC Micro:
In my opinion, this typeface could use a bit of inspiration from the elegance of Consolas (http://www.lucasfonts.com/case-studies/calibri-consolas/)
Could someone explain what does this mean?
(Wider monospace fonts would typically require extra character spacing between CJK ideographs.)
Ref: http://www.w3.org/TR/clreq/#basic_features_of_chinese_script ("squares with the ratio of 1:1, and are seamlessly arranged with one another.")
This is in Firefox on Linux.
But it's very slow to respond to clicks. Please consider just putting in some img tags and linking in images…
Love the ks especially.
Sometimes all it takes it a new font to jog your creativity a bit.
What was your inspiration for this ?
The inspiration of M+ 1m + Pragmata Pro is very interesting and make for a powerful font.
Do you anticipate further font development, driven by the same code-generated workflow, attempting to tackle modernization of something like the venerable Misc Fixed 13pt, which needs an update for modern screens and/or resolutions?
Then, there's the Apple Menlo/Monaco, Ubuntu Mono and derivatives, as well as Consolas and its derivatives which tend to focus on wider glyphs , as opposed to the narrowness and (longer?) line-heights of similar fonts to M+ 1m / Pragmata Pro? It would be interesting to see if newer fonts can evolve from this approach.
Thanks for a great project!
Maybe I can make a library or toolchain after this font is almost completed, as a modernized METAFONT, which produces Opentype directly from your generation source code. And well, in that toolchain, i will not use PatEL since this language has not been documented yet.
