Setting up Microsoft's new font for coding

Two days ago, Microsoft released a font targeted at developers.

See the blog post here:

This font also supports ligatures. Here's how to set it up in Visual Studio Code:

  • In VSC, open the Settings page
  • Change the font family setting by prepending 'Cascadia Code'
  • Look for the Ligatures setting, and enable it.

Without enabling ligatures, symbols lik != won't be displayed as like they demo in the blog post.
