Will bitmap fonts eventually be available?


#1

Is it possible to have bitmap fonts in Atom? In particular fonts like Terminus, gohufont etc.?


#2

Not sure about this included in Atom core, but this may help you if you want to include it in your user stylesheet:

Thanks a bunch! Your answer here helped: How do I load google fonts into my editor's styles?

Created a terminus-font package and used it directly and removed the default font setting from preferences.

@mtahmed can you share your package with me? I am trying to make a package with a bitmap font as well. I have been struggling to be able to use my favorite bitmap font with Atom.

Cheers.

terminus is the exact font I want to use, I use it without anti-alias in terminals and it looks great. There was a discussion some years ago that it’s not possible to render fonts without anti-alias in Atom anymore. Dunno. But could you share the package and save some folks some time? :slight_smile:

Nevermind! found the “fonts”-package. Now for the really important part for eye-ergonomy: getting rid of the anti-alias, no high hopes.
