What is Cascadia Code?




Cascadia Code is a new font from Microsoft that was released in 2019. It was developed alongside Windows Terminal, a new terminal application for Windows 10 that supports multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 characters, custom themes, styles, and configurations.


The origin and purpose of Cascadia Code




The name Cascadia Code originates from the Windows Terminal project. Initially, the Windows Terminal team wanted to use Consolas as the default font for their application. However, they realized that Consolas does not have programming ligatures, which are special glyphs that combine two or more characters into one symbol. For example, the characters "==" can be merged into a single equal sign, or the characters "=>" can be merged into a single arrow.


Programming ligatures can make code more readable and elegant, especially for languages like F#, Scala, Haskell, or JavaScript. Therefore, the Windows Terminal team decided to create a new font that supports programming ligatures and also looks good on the terminal. They chose to base their new font on Fira Mono, a free monospaced font that already has some ligatures. They also added some extra features, such as Powerline symbols (which are useful for displaying information in the prompt) and cursive italic variants (which are useful for distinguishing comments from code).
