Dweep X11 Font – Mod of Neep

This is my second font release. I call it dweep. No particular reason for the name though. I took the amazing Neep font from Jim Knoble, which is one of the favorite fonts of programmers, and modified a few characters, namely, “a”, “i”, “f”. May be some more, but it eludes me at the moment.

I did this specifically for my netbook. Small enough and readable at the standard EEE resolution. As usual, I have updated my github with this font. You can get it from there. Just click on the image to directly go to my github page.

Posting an old screenshot with the font in action on my OpenBSD powered netbook. Gives you an idea as to how it looks on a dark background. Click on the image for full view.

I will release another font tomorrow. Till then, folks.

  1. that font looks really nice!
    good screenshot btw, what window manager are you using on it?
    I wish I could use openbsd but it won’t install on my laptop 😦

  2. I have cw installed, but it colors only the output of a command. I am asking because in the attached screenshot you have colors even for the command arguments. Look at the scrot command. I am interested in that kind of info. Thanks.

    • Ah, now I see what you mean. Live command coloring is a feature of zsh. On my github, there is a file in the root directory called, live-command-coloring.sh. You can edit it according to your needs of course. Copy that file somewhere and just source it in your .zshrc. That’s all. You will have dynamic coloring immediately.

      #Add this to your .zshrc
      #Live syntax coloring
      source /home/user/your-directory/live-command-coloring.sh

      Hope that helps.
