Fira Code

Fira Code is a monospaced font with programming ligatures by Nikita Prokopov.

The official directions for installation are here.


On Windows, I installed via chocolatey:

choco install firacode

And then I enabled the ligatures in Visual Studio Code:

  1. Via keyboard in VSCode: CTRL+,
  2. Enter “font” in the search
  3. Added 'Fira Code' to the beginning of the font family list (I had trouble with terminals if i strictly replaced)
  4. Checked “Enables/Disabled Font Ligatures”
