Inconsolata is an open-source font created by Raph Levien and released under the SIL Open Font License. It is a humanist monospaced font designed for source code listing, terminal emulators, and similar uses. It was influenced by the proprietary Consolas monospaced font, designed by Lucas de Groot, the proportional Avenir and IBM's classic monospaced Letter Gothic.
There was originally no bold variant of Inconsolata, which caused less than optimal display on systems that used a bold variant to display text. However, when Inconsolata was added to Google Fonts, it was fully hinted and a bold variant was added.
