Description José Romildo Malaquias 2015-12-26 09:57:53 UTC
Please add fira-code to portage.

Fira Code is a Fira Mono font extended with a set of ligatures for common programming multi-character combinations. This is just a font rendering feature: underlying code remains ASCII-compatible. This helps to read and understand code faster. For some frequent sequences like .. or // ligatures allow us to correct spacing.

I have a copy in my "graaff" overlay. I intend to also add emacs support to it, and then I might also add it to the gentoo repository.

    media-fonts/fira-code: initial import of 1.205
    This ebuild also includes an upstream Symbol version of the glyphs that
    can be used by editors that don't support ligatures, e.g. Emacs.
