My name is Nick Taylor. I am a Senior Software Engineer at Forem/DEV working on all things Forem. I am a big fan of TypeScript, JavaScript, (P)React and Node. Once upon a time, I was into C#/ASP.NET. Aside from programming, I enjoy hitting the gym, snowboarding, and a long long time ago, rugby. I am also not a big fan of spiders.

    # Customizing VS Code
    I followed the instructions in this blog post [Multiple Fonts: Alternative to Operator Mono in VSCode](, but did not see any changes made to VS Code. After digging a bit, I discovered that all the CSS class names had changed. They’re now e.g. `.mtk13, .mtk16 { … }`.
    ## Gotchas
    * Ensure it’s a file URL e.g. `{ "vscode_custom_css.imports": [ "file:///Users/Brian/Desktop/vscode-style.css" ] }`
