The PragmataPro Font has some really killer examples where they render == as a single character and clean up a lot of other stuff.

Example of PragmataPro

Would any Linux terminals support this? And are there any alternatives to PragmataPro?

  • It is packaged in the AUR: that seems to answer all your questions… And there is no source, it is a font, but it is licensed.

So there are a few open source fonts targeting programmers that support ligatures, namely

  • FiraCode
  • Hasklig
  • Monoid
  • Iosevka

However, very few opensource terminals that run natively on Linux yet support this. But you can find an current list in the FiraCode docs

  • Kitty I am using Kitty on i3 and I really love it

  • Black Screen (slow in browser terminal emulator that runs on node)

  • Konsole (terminal editor that uses Qt)
  • QTerminal (terminal editor that uses Qt)

No support
