PragmataPro 0.827 loading time, a giant running like a cheetahWith the help of @kelas and other good friends of Pragmata Pro from the open source community, version 0.827 comes with a brand new ligature substitution engine which is 10-20x faster than before, depending on the input.

Now Pragmata Pro, with its 9437 glyphs, can be loaded in a few µs.
Practically a giant who run like a cheetah!

 


— Java and C/C++ reserved keywords are now kerned

PragmataPro C++ and Java reserved keywords kerned with GPOS table

Pragmata Pro™ is the first monospaced typeface to offer precise glyph positioning in common programming keywords, enabled by default in editors that support OpenType GPOS table.
The consistency and orthogonality of fixed pitch is now combined with the finesse of a proportional font.
The result is less tiring, aesthetically pleasing coding experience.
Your eye will know the difference before you do.

 


 

— Added Enclosed Alphanumerics set

Pragmata Pro Enclosed Alphanumerics

In all the weights of all the versions.

 


 

— Enabled Hebrew Nikkud

Pragmata Pro Hebrew Nikkud

At the moment only in Regular versions. In the next releases the same marking system will be added to all the weights and also in Arabic alphabet.

 


 

— Added Markdown checklist ligatures

Markdown checklist ligatures are available enabling OpenType Stylistic Set 12 in your editor and are based on these combinations:

- [ ]    - [-]    - [v]    - [x]

 


— Marks and accents are combinable with letters

PragmataPro sample of letters combined with marksMarks  are often used in Phonetics texts and Mathematical formulas.
Since this version they are in their right place.

 


 

— Other improvements:

all weights: problems with some terminal emulators have been resolved

all weights: added these ligatures:
|- turnstile like
||- double turnstile like
_|_ bottom like
=~= <-< >-> <--> <== <<== ==>>

all weights: vertical position of * (asterisk) are aligned to x-height

Regular: improved TrueType hinting of → ← ↑ ↓ # { } / \

Regular: improved the consistency between Mathematical Operators and Miscellaneous Technical set

— Bold, Italic and Bold Italic: added IPA characters and its extensions

all weights: typing us after numbers and space will appears microsecond µs in serif variant

Thanks to the numerous suggestions arrived, PragmataPro now is even a more complete professional typeface:

 

— Added Extra Bow Drawing symbols suggested by Dmtri Nesteruk

Some month ago Dmtri Nesteruk wrote me an email with a sketched good idea: to add a bullet to some used box drawing glyphs. The result is very interesting! By now  also a lot of graphic designers can be rethink the use of box drawing.

 

Milano Metro map text only

The entire map of the metro of Milan I redesigned using this exclusive box drawing method

Perfect also for text only diagramsdiagram using PragmataPro box drawing extra

A command line chart system based on Unicode glyphs

Today I released on GitHub my idea of a trading chart based on Terminal or other command line applications.

Terminal Trading Chart sample

The mixing of volumes data and prices data:
│ (Unicode U+2502) = small volumes
┃ (Unicode U+2503) = medium volumes
█ (Unicode U+2588) = big volumes
Red and green colors are used to have a more clear idea visually of the percentage of selling and buying contracts referred on a defined time.
The simplification of the chart through a small grid helps to find the right moment for investing.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in using this unprecedented chart system
Feedbacks are welcome

 

Three important reached goals and changes in the version 0.823 of PragmataPro:

 

➊ Completion of Math support!

It seems impossible to me but it’s really happens

 

PragmataPro first modular font with all math support


 

➋ Arabic alphabet improved

PragmataPro now it’s more Kufi style to improve the readability at low sizes

 

PragmataPro Arabic 2016


 

➌ Hebrew alphabet improved

and added important glyphs in the Unicode Alphabetic Presentation Form set

 

PragmataPro Hebrew 2016


 

 Last but not least:

* Regular: improved the design of many Math symbols
/universal now has an alternative version available using OpenType ss12 feature
/emptyset now has an alternative version available using OpenType ss13 feature

* all weights: now PragmataPro is completely compatible with IntelliJ IDEA software

* all weights: removed U+3000-303F CJK Symbols and Punctuation set
to avoid conflicts with other CJK fonts

* all weights: added the greek glyphs useful for LaTeX /Digamma and /digamma

* Regular: improved the hinting of Latin sets glyphs

* Regular: added the missing subscript and superscript Latin and Greek small letters,
available using OpenType feature “sinf” “sups”

* all weights: now Braille alphabet haven’t helpers lines
to use the Braille alphabet with helpers line use
OpenType Stylistic Set 11 “ss11” feature

* all weights: added these important ligatures:
<--- <!-- --> :=> <->

* Regular: added and improved the design of the glyphs for Computer User Interface

PragmataPro font v_0.822

There are a lot of changes in the version 0.822 of PragmataPro:

 

➊ Perfect integration with CJK fonts and Emoji

All the glyphs are been scaled to exactly 0.5 em² wide (= 1024-unit em) so they are compatible with CJK (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) characters, where every character are exactly 1 em² wide (= 2048 unit)

PragmataPro integration with CJK monospaced fonts

 


 

➋ All the arrows, planned by Unicode until now, are been designed

PragmataPro is now the first modular/monospaced font of the history that includes all these arrows.
You can see all from my Github repository named ‘Arrow Finder

Arrows of PragmataPro displayed by pointing orientation

 


 

➌ Towards completion of Math support

It’s been improved the design of U+2200 – U+22FF Mathematical Operators set
added the U+2980 – U+29FF Misc. Mathematical Symbols-B set
added the U+2A00 – U+2AFF Supplemental Math Operators set
under the precious supervision of Pierre Le Marre

PragmataPro improved thanks by Pierre Le Marre annotations

 


 

➍ New ligatures for functional programming languages

The design of ligatures that includes < and > is changed
Added a lot of new ligatures to improve the programming in Haskell, Scala, Swift … in all the weights available
