It would be great to have italic shapes too. Auto-italics will wreak havoc on characters like \ / and |.

Quoting Paul: "If there is enough interest in companion italics for Source Code, hopefully the community will help to develop them."

@miguelsousa wouldn't it be appropriate to keep the issue open so it is recognized that italics is desired and a contribution of italic shapes would be accepted?

I think so. We’ll leave this an open issue for now and see what comes of it.

Some editors or themes make use of italics for special or otherwise reserved words.

I'm in favour of italics.

This is an issue for Brackets too (we had to turn off bold/italics in the Markdown mode we got from CodeMirror, which uses them by default).

I will add as well that italics would be of interest to me.

I will try to see what I can do to help, though I know little of how to make fonts, so I fear that "making encouraging noises" is about what I can do.

Italic would be nice, so it can be used in TextMate :)

Add my vote/interest for it. Both my source code in IntelliJ IDEA as well as Sublime Text highlighting uses italics and the faux italics/slant Source Code Pro uses right now is not "good enough" for me to work with. So in the end I had to revert back to Consolas.

Add my vote for a true italic. It is very nice to have in Vera Sans Mono.

I'd like proper italics too, if at all possible. (I tend to use italics to style code comments).

+1 from me too. We live in the world of theme-able editors and it is a pretty useful addition. Especially since most text editors default to having comments in italics.

I'd also love to see italics for use in Sublime Text as well.

Uglyface200 commented Dec 13, 2012

+1 from me. Consolas has a beautiful, contrasting italic face. Source Code Pro just isn't complete without italics.

I think the actual design should be fairly simple; we could simply base the italics on those from Source Sans Pro.

pauldhunt commented Dec 13, 2012

I think that we all agree that italics would be a very useful addition to this (or any) typeface family. I previously fielded a similar request on our blog where I stated:

Although The letterforms of Source Sans are mostly oblique forms, that doesn’t mean they were generated automagically. The Italics represent about as much work as the upright design. If there is enough interest in companion italics for Source Code, hopefully the community will help to develop them.

Perhaps we will seed this project with some source files in the new year and see what those of you interested can contribute.

Some of us can't afford FontLab Studio, or whatever program opens the source files you provide. Could you possibly release the files in the .sfd format, so us poor men using FontForge can edit them?

We have standardized on the UFO format for outline storage. FontForge should be able to open UFO files. We plan to make UFO versions of the existing projects available in the near future.

I agree, true italics would be nice, but until one if our customers builds a time machine... We will have to wait until I have time to do it or someone else helps with the development. +1’s won’t get us thrre any sooner although I am encouraged by your interest in this project.

/0 just kidding! just letting you know that I have actually started into exploring italic shapes for Source Code, however I have a lot of projects on my plate at the moment that take precedence, so thank you for your continued patience and interest in this project.

Have a good vacation, you've done an awesome job (all of you), and looking forward to the end result.

It's also been very nice to follow how fonts grow, I think a lot of people (me included) have gained new appreciation for it.

@Melindrea i should hope so! i think this is part of the reason we wanted to do the development of the italics ‘in the open’ like this.

@Melindrea @pauldhunt Agreed. Even if I don’t have a new appreciation for it, I certainly have a more specific, concrete, and 💪 appreciation.

It’s been a year since Teo started on the italics, and I am now putting the finishing touches on the next version of the family. I expect that the next release of the family will happen sometime in July. Thank you everyone for being patient, I hope that the wait will have been worth it.
