Lilex is the modern programming font containing a set of ligatures for common programming multi-character combinations.
This is just a font rendering feature: underlying code remains ASCII-compatible. This helps to read and understand code faster. For some frequent sequences like .. or //, ligatures allow us to correct spacing like kerning pairs.
Compiled versions are available under releases.
Additional features are available in the font, which are disabled by default.
At the moment building is possible on Ubuntu and macOS. First, install the build dependencies.
