Monocraft

Github all releases

The monospaced font for developers who like Minecraft a bit too much.

If you'd like to see a vectorized version of this font, try Miracode!

Notice: This project is not affiliated with Minecraft or Mojang in any way and is exclusively a fan project. This font emulates the typeface of the font used in the Minecraft UI, but it does not include any assets or font files from the original game.

Features

  • Minecraft!
    • The characters in this font were based around the typeface used in the Minecraft UI, with each glyph updated for better readability and spacing
  • Monospaced!
    • Each of the 1500+ glyphs included in this font have been carefully redesigned to work in a monospaced font
    • Thin characters like "i" and "l" have been reworked with tasteful tails and serifs to look better in a monospaced environment
  • Programming ligatures!
    • Add some spice to your programming life with all new ligature characters
    • Arrows now look like arrows and comparison operators are easier to see at a glance

FAQ

What ligatures are available?

So far, the following ligatures have been added to the font:

And with the contributions of @Ciubix8513, Monocraft now includes continuous ligatures that enable you to type arrows and lines that just keep going.

If there is another character combination that you feel could be a ligature, feel free to create an issue!

How are these characters generated?

Using FontForge's excellent Python extension, the glyphs are created from configuration files representing each character's pixels. Diacritics are created separately and are combined with the original characters to create over 500 unique glyphs. To learn more, check out the source code in the src folder.

Do you have a version with the original Minecraft font (not monospaced)?

I've got you covered, check out my rendition of the Minecraft typeface here.

What if I want to use a font that's actually good?

Understandable, check out Fira Code for a font with amazing attention to detail, or Scientifica for a bitmap font similar to this.
