Powerline Web Fonts working in Secure Shell and working also on Chromebook (or pretty much anything running Chrome).

There are several font-family you can choose from (all Powerline-enabled):

See Slant if you don't know which to choose.

Usage example

Usage example for Secure Shell

  • Launch Secure Shell and click on Options (or go to chrome-extension://pnhechapfaindjhompbnflcldabbghjo/html/nassh_preferences_editor.html):
    • Set font-family: "Source Code Pro", monospace
    • Set Custom CSS (URI):

Usage example for Crosh Window

  • Start crosh window then press Ctrl+Shift+J and paste in the following:
term_.prefs_.set('font-family', '"Source Code Pro", monospace');
term_.prefs_.set('user-css', '');

If you have Crouton installed on a developer mode Chromebook, or if you're on pretty much any other OS, you can install those fonts locally or copy them locally and it'll work with little to no effort.

  • Include a new font file in WOFF2 format.
  • Add your font to PowerlineFonts.css, preview.html and (might use Transfonter to help with the CSS).
  • Once merged, send another pull request, I might forget, that updates all in this README to the latest commit SHA-1. You can do that in the original Pull Request if it gets rebased (merge and sqashes would not work in that case).

Converting to WOFF2

There are various methods, including:
