Source Code Pro (2012)[edit]

Source Code Pro is a set of monospaced OpenType fonts that have been designed to work well in coding environments. This family of fonts is a complementary design to the Source Sans family. It is available in seven weights (Extralight, Light, Regular, Medium, Semibold, Bold, Black).

  • Long x-height

  • Redesigned i, j, and l
