Cascadia Code[2] is a purpose-built monospaced TrueType font for Windows Terminal, the new command-line interface for Microsoft Windows.

It includes programming ligatures and was designed to enhance the look and feel of Windows Terminal, terminal applications and text editors such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.[3] The font is open source under the SIL Open Font License and available on GitHub.[4] It has been bundled with Windows Terminal since version 0.5.2762.0.[5]

Cascadia Code includes box drawing glyphs.[6]

Font family

Multiple typefaces are part of the Cascadia Code font family, representing a variety of text styling options and adjustable weights. The main and Powerline variants of the types are suitable as display fonts. With the exception of Cascadia Mono, all types replace common character combinations with their elided counterparts. Other styles supported by this font family include textual arrows and stylistic sets for italics, alternate graphics, alternate control character glyphs, and a cursive form of italic. Tables of the supported styles and more examples can be viewed in the GitHub README document.

In addition to the prevalent TTF variable format, these sets are available also in other formats. See the GitHub README for details.
