Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Supports Dropbox sync
Dropbox integration updates files in real time.
Pro Files are organized via hashtags instead of folders
You organize files by adding hashtags as the last line of a document. You can even use nested hashtags for greater control.
Monospace Writer's interface is clutter-free, there's nothing but text on the screen.
Pro Has a heavier appearance than Fira Code or Monoid
Pro Great for Haskell
Pro Has many variants such as Italic, Bold Italic, Light, Semibold, etc., etc
Pro Completely free and open source
Freely available via GitHub, therefore can be modified and improved by anyone.
Con Hashtag-based organizational method might not feel intuitive
Using hashtags might take some to get used when transition from more common organizational methods like folder-based organization.
Con Some Ligatures like -<< don't look that good.
Con Has a heavier appearance than Fira Code or Monoid
Con Lacks !=
Some coding fonts with ligatures, like Fira Code, turn != into ≠, but Hasklig does not. The reason for this is that Hasklig was designed for Haskell code, and so turns /= into ≠ instead.
Con No support for many editors, including emacs
Unfortunately, not supporting emacs is the number one reason I don't use this font all the time.
Con Very cute but not WYSIWYG
You want to see exactly what you've typed, not have your brain have to do a little dance every time you see one of these artifacts.
