@rixx Awesome font! Too bad it doesn't have diacritics for my language.
@pskosinski Oh, interesting, what are you missing? I only tested German ones and whatever came to mind afterwards (and was easily accessible via compose keys), like these.
@rixx would say the monospaced version should be okay for programming (although I prefer Fira Sans Mono for that)
@koppts Well, every programmer prefers their own font selection, and of course technically every mono font "should be okay for programming".
But I found plenty wrong with B612 for programming: ":" and ";" look very similar, and they are placed far to the left instead of center, which looks very weird in a programming context. 0 and O are almost interchangeable, no markings for the zero. ( looks very much like a [ in other fonts. Those alone are dealbreakers for me.
@rixx yeah. totally understandable. I just had a glance at the font.
@rixx but it's only ASCII?
@hirojin If this is ASCII, I can live with it 😉
According to this leaflet about the font, the stricken 0 is on codepoint E007:
So it should be straightforward to fork and expose the zero
@rixx Trying this out in X11 now. :)
@rixx Zażółć gęślą jaźń. ;)
@pskosinski So yeah, it fucks up the spacing on the monospace font (I don't have the regular one handy), but all the diacritics are there:
@rixx Weird, I was typing that text into Google Fonts and I was getting rectangles everywhere.
@rixx Hm… I feel like on your screen, polish diacritics are taken from some other font.
