Programming Fonts?
« on: April 01, 2012, 01:43:03 PM »
Just wondering what fonts people who code in Tinycore prefer.

Do you install fonts from an extension? Or is there one that ships by default that you prefer?

Also interested in people's "IDE" configurations. Editor or full-blown IDE, which editor or IDE, dotfiles, preferred languages, revision control, general workflow tips etc.

Thanks.

cheerio,
solorin

Thanks, Mike. Thanks also for fluff and other contributions to Core.

Does anyone know which fonts that ship by default are monospace?

I do not know what is the default monospace included by default in core but is identical to the dejavu mono.

Hi solorin
I run Geany with the default mono font. Enter   xset -q   to find the font paths on your system.
