PragmataPro 0.825 – more pros!

Thanks to the numerous suggestions arrived, PragmataPro now is even a more complete professional typeface:

— Added Extra Bow Drawing symbols suggested by Dmtri Nesteruk

Some month ago Dmtri Nesteruk wrote me an email with a sketched good idea: to add a bullet to some used box drawing glyphs. The result is very interesting! By now  also a lot of graphic designers can be rethink the use of box drawing.


The entire map of the metro of Milan I redesigned using this exclusive box drawing method


Perfect also for text only diagrams

— Added [FIXME] [TODO] [BUG] [NOTE] [HACK] [MARK] ligatures to emphasize important messages in command line

After all these notifications I suppose now has all the command line messages emphasized


— Added all the icons of Nerd font

Nerd font contents a lot icons useful to Vim users. More info:


— Regular: improved the design of the entire Fullwidth and Halfwidth letters

PragmataPro can interact more better with other CJK fonts.


— Minors improvements:

Regular: added power symbols to Miscellaneous Technical set

— all weights: improved the TrueType hinting above all for Microsoft Windows

— all weights: added :<: :>: ligatures for Scala

— all weights: added :) :-) :( :-( :D :P :3 ligatures for text chatting


Feel free to contact me directly or notify an issue via Github to improve PragmataPro again and again.
Thank you!

Terminal Trading Chart

A command line chart system based on Unicode glyphs

Today I released on GitHub my idea of a trading chart based on Terminal or other command line applications.

The mixing of volumes data and prices data:
│ (Unicode U+2502) = small volumes
┃ (Unicode U+2503) = medium volumes
█ (Unicode U+2588) = big volumes
Red and green colors are used to have a more clear idea visually of the
percentage of selling and buying contracts referred on a defined time.
The simplification of the chart through a small grid helps to find the right moment for investing.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in using this unprecedented chart system.
Feedbacks are welcome
