MonoLisa - A font family designed for software developers. Font follows function #

There is not a lot of great font choices for developers. Mono Lisa looks very modern, supports all ligatures that some developers love (some hate), nice wider footprint and is presented on a stunning presentational website. Check this one out.

GitHub acquires npm! Main focus after the deal closes will be to improve the platform infrastructure, make the core experiences better and engage more with JavaScript community. In a long run we may expect massively improved security of a registry and smoother integration with GitHub Packages.

The amazing energy and creativity of millions of JavaScript developers is evident every day in the work that appears in npm. We are honored to support that community in a new way. The future of npm and the JavaScript ecosystem is very bright.
