I’ve always been curious about the font that GitHub uses to render all our Markdown files.
Out of curiosity, I went looking for it and luckily I found it. Everybody, save the following as a snippet somewhere:
font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "Segoe UI", Roboto, Oxygen, Ubuntu, Cantarell, "Fira Sans", "Droid Sans", "Helvetica Neue", Arial, sans-serif, "Apple Color Emoji", "Segoe UI Emoji", "Segoe UI Symbol";
If you want to explore the detail about this
font-family and the way it is written (especially why they start with
-apple-system), read this blog post.
