Through brew (MacOS only)

    brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
  2. Install it using the font-jetbrains-mono cask:
    brew cask install font-jetbrains-mono

Through Chocolatey (Windows only)

  1. Install Chocolatey if you haven't done already. See this page for instructions on how to do that.
  2. In an elevated cmd console (Run as administrator...) :

  2. Unzip the archive and install the font:
    • Mac. Select all font files in the folder and double-click them. Click the "Install Font" button.

    • Windows. Select all font files in the folder, right-click any of them, then pick "Install" from the menu.

    • Ubuntu. Open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and run the following:

Visual Studio Code allows you to also edit the underlying settings.json config file. First open the settings editor as described above, then click the "{}" icon, at the top right, to open the "settings.json" file.
