As programmers we deal with monospace fonts a good deal, and to be frank most of them aren't very good. That's not so much the failure of the fontographer, as it is that latin characters are not designed to BE monospaced. The letters i, j, l, and t in their lowercase forms are simply not well suited to it.
I have recently (past year) developed a very bad astigmatism. Bright lights at night, bright themes, and even some fonts with "thin glyphs" all cause problems for me. To the point I was having trouble reading my own code.
I mean we all know courier is trash which is why nobody uses it, but when I'm having issues reading Fira Code or Hack, I had to do something about it.
Note that this font is written to fit MY issues and limitations and is based on what my eyes see (or don't see). I have no clue if it will be useful or legible to others even though I followed "best practices". From increasing bowl sizes 30 units (out of a 1440 x-height), to a 3:2 bar to slab ratio, to a 120 unit leading/trailing space.
Here's some pics of it in use.
For now I've only completed support for the 96 base ASCII characters, which in 99% of my work is all I need.
That said If people like it (maybe drop some $$$ into my PP donation box?") I might be prompted to finish out at least Latin-1.
