Recently I discovered a very nice
monospaced font: “Hack” by Source Foundry.
Hack is based on DejaVu Sans Mono, but with some nice modifications. My favorites:
- A very lovely, curved
- Longer hyphen (DejaVu’s hyphen is awkwardly short)
- More generous spacing for parenthesis
Of course, there are many more, subtle differences.
So, if you already like DejaVu/Menlo, Hack may be for you. I’ve made it my default font in BBEdit and it looks great at 11 pt.
