monospace font for pretty code listings and for the terminal
Inconsolata is a monospace font, designed for code listings and the like, in print. There are a great many "programmer fonts," designed primarily for use on the screen, but in most cases do not have the attention to detail for high resolution rendering. . The Fontforge .sfd and the Spiro .plate extended sources are available on the upstream website and in the source package. A Type1 version of the font is also available. . This is work in progress. It is released under the SIL Open Font License. Completion of this font is being generously sponsored by the TeX Users Group Development Fund. If you like this font and want to see more sponsored and released freely, please consider donating to TUG's Libre Font Fund.
extended smart Unicode Latin/Greek font family for literacy
Andika ("Write!" in Swahili) is a sans serif, Unicode-compliant font designed especially for literacy use, taking into account the needs of beginning readers. The focus is on clear, easy-to-perceive letterforms that will not be easily confused with one another. . A sans serif font is preferred by some literacy personnel for teaching people to read. Its forms are simpler and less cluttered than some serif fonts can be. For years, literacy workers have had to make do with fonts that were available but not really suitable for beginning readers and writers. In some cases, literacy specialists have had to tediously cobble together letters from a variety of fonts in order to get the all of characters they need for their particular language project, resulting in confusing and unattractive publications. Andika addresses those issues. . After receiving many insightful comments on the Design Review and Basic fonts, Andika's final letterforms have been refined with alternate shapes still available for some characters. This font now contains the same character set as Charis SIL and Doulos SIL. . Andika provides OpenType and Graphite features like smart code for diacritic placement and supports recent additions to Unicode and the SIL PUA, and character assignments are updated to conform to Unicode 5.1 . See the FONTLOG for information on this and previous releases. . Webfonts formats and HTML/CSS examples are available. . Source files are available

Hack TrueType fonts (transitional package for fonts-hack)
No frills. No gimmicks. Hack is hand groomed and optically balanced to be a workhorse face for code. . It has deep roots in the libre, open source typeface community and expands upon the contributions of the Bitstream Vera & DejaVu projects. The face has been re-designed with a larger glyph set, modifications of the original glyph shapes (including distinct point styles and semi-bold punctuation weight in the regular set to make analphabetic characters less transparent), and meticulous attention to metrics (including numerous spacing adjustments to improve the rhythm of the face and the legibility of code at small text sizes). The large x-height + wide aperture + low contrast design combined with PostScript hinting/hint replacement programs and a TrueType instruction set make it highly legible at commonly used source code text sizes with a sweet spot that runs in the 8px - 12px range on modern desktop and laptop monitors. . This package contains the TrueType fonts and it's the currently recommended version for screen display.
