Enabling font ligatures on Visual Studio Code
In software development we are using many operators and symbols. But in programming languages they are always represented with multiple characters (==, !=, >=, <=, =>, …), but still represent a single symbol. Almost all the code editors support font ligature and can be used to improve the rendering of source code on screen.
I’m using Visual Studio Code to develop in Golang.
Install Fira Code font
$ brew tap caskroom/fonts
$ brew cask install font-fira-code
Enable fontLigatures on Vscode
Add this lines at the end of the settings.json (File > Preferences > User Settings)
"editor.fontFamily": "Fira Code",
You have now an editor with fontLigatures !!!
