Pro Open source

Pro Italics look good
The handwritten-style italics of Fantasque Sans Mono are quite attractive.
Pro Powerline symbols
As a "Mono" font, Fantasque is uniform in size and overalls. However, if you look further into all characters, you'll find that there's almost no pattern between them - except for the huge amount of curves.
