Didn't think my next article would be out so soon, but here's one on or on the web and why blindly adding plugins to your site is not a good idea. 🙃


@celia does that have to do with the font not supporting the ligatures the plugin converts to?

@tychi I'm not sure...

@kev's comments appear to use "fira" font -- which surprisingly is what I also use, albeit the "Sans" variant.

It might be that the included font might not have all glyphs for performance/optimization reasons?

@celia @kev hmm, I'm not sure either. I use Fira Code in my terminal though, so we're all aligned on Fira being an excellent family 😊


@tychi @celia @kev Fira is quite nice, I have to agree with that. I use Camingo Code.
