Full Support of Safari including Mobile and fonts

Hi Guys,

First of all, this is an AWESOME project and I’m loving what you’ve done up until this point. I think this will be a game changer for a lot of us folks that work on different machines all the time and need a way to interact with our code without having to configure and spin up resources each time we want to do something.

I have been using Codespaces Beta for a few weeks and everything works great on Chrome apart from trackpad support for Chrome on iPad. I think the latest insider fixed a few issues I had with custom fonts I installed, however when I want to move to Safari both on iOS and MacOS, fonts are not being rendered properly.

I know its too early and this is still a beta, but it would be great to keep this on the roadmap so that both Safari Desktop and Mobile can support custom fonts thrown at them. I know this is might not be a limitation of Safari as the fonts can get rendered on other websites, but something that might need to be tuned on Codespaces.

Thank you for all the hard work on bringing coding pretty much anywhere!

Hey @sollymay, thanks for this feedback! It would be great if you could tell us what custom fonts you’re working with, that way we can hone in on where the problem might be. We’re always looking to improve our Safari experience and will keep this in mind for the future. Out of curiosity, is there a particular reason you’re using custom fonts in Safari?

Hey Bailey,

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!

I am using Victor Mono Nerd Font.

Only reason why I use that font, is that I normally use it to code as it is extremely readable for me and has ligatures and italics, which help a lot in knowing what is what on my code, so I always use it on VS code or any other editor I use.

Here’s an example using nvim just for reference. Even oh my zsh takes advantage of nerd fonts to show really nice github characters everywhere.
