An open source typeface for hardware people! It renders text like serial data viewed on an oscilloscope, i.e., as a series of visual pulses. The site has a realtime playground so you can see what it looks like. Note that only ascii values are generated currently! There are 1-bit utility characters that can be used to generate arbitrary waveforms, so read the docs on Github.
Programmers use a lot of symbols, often encoded with several characters. For the human brain, sequences like ->, <= or := are single logical tokens, even if they take two or three characters on the screen. Your eye spends a non-zero amount of energy to scan, parse and join multiple characters into a single logical one. Ideally, all programming languages should be designed with full-fledged Unicode symbols for operators, but that’s not the case yet.
Fira Code is a free monospaced font containing 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.
Free fonts have met their match. We know how hard it is to find quality freeware that is licensed for commercial work. We've done the hard work, hand-selecting these typefaces and presenting them in an easy-to-use format.
Comic Sans wasn't designed to be the world's most ubiquitous casual typeface. Comic Neue aspires to be the casual script choice for everyone including the typographically savvy.
The squashed, wonky, and weird glyphs of Comic Sans have been beaten into shape while maintaining the honesty that made Comic Sans so popular.
It's perfect as a display face, for marking up comments, and writing passive aggressive office memos.
Atkinson Hyperlegible font is named after Braille Institute founder, J. Robert Atkinson.

We are making it free for anyone to use!
Both desktop and web fonts are included.
VHS is a tool for creating GIFs that can be used to demo CLI tools. But what if we used it to do something different? Like re-create some classic scifi movie scenes. Such as Trinity using NMAP in the Matrix or hacking WOPR in War Games? This project has some VHS tapes that generate:
- Neo receiving messages from Trinity in the Matrix
- Trinity hacking using NMAP
- Hacking WOPR in War Games
- WOPR realising Thermonuclear war is a mugs game
- Dennis Nedry's terminal in Jurassic Park
- Ripley asking about Special Order 937

Web font downloader/inliner.
Downloads a set of web fonts specified by @font-face rules in a CSS file. By default, woff2 equivalents are inlined as the modern browsers all support it.
By inlining woff files, this reduces the number of server roundtrips by two in the best case (the external CSS and woff files), one in the worst (just the external CSS). By reducing roundtrips we can reduce the amount of time we risk showing a flash of unstyled or hidden text content.
This tool is currently designed to work against Google's font server but should work against any hosted CSS font that uses @font-face.
