Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Unique glyphs
This makes it easy to distinguish characters at small sizes.
Pro It has bold font even for the small 11px size
Pro Very good unicode support
It covers most common unicode characters so it's suitable for everyday terminal applications, not only coding.
Pro Raster font
Always crisp and sharp, highly legible at even 8 pt. Excellent for low to normal dpi screens.
Pro Has a heavier appearance than Fira Code or Monoid.
Pro Has many variants such as Italic, Bold Italic, Light, Semibold, etc., etc.
Pro Great for Haskell
Pro Completely free and open source
Freely available via GitHub, therefore can be modified and improved by anyone
Con Bitmap only
Certain Cairo-powered apps fail to render them (e.g. sublime text is only available on a few Linux distros).
Con Ships in only two sizes
It only ships in 11px and 14px formats, which might not feel as comfortable to people used to other font sizes.
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.
