Version 0.4.0 on 2022-09-07
⁃ Made it possible for the user option `fontaine-presets' to cover the
`fixed-pitch-serif' face. This face is used by the default Emacs
faces in Info buffers to render inline code elements. A list of
properties within `fontaine-presets' can thus look like this (the
manual explains everything in detail—else check my current setup at
the end of this entry):
│ ;; I keep all properties for didactic purposes, but most can be
│ ;; omitted.
│ :default-family "Monospace"
│ :default-weight regular
│ :default-height 100
│ :fixed-pitch-family nil ; falls back to :default-family
│ :fixed-pitch-weight nil ; falls back to :default-weight
│ :fixed-pitch-height 1.0
│ :fixed-pitch-serif-family nil ; falls back to :default-family
│ :fixed-pitch-serif-weight nil ; falls back to :default-weight
│ :fixed-pitch-serif-height 1.0
│ :variable-pitch-family "Sans"
│ :variable-pitch-weight nil
│ :variable-pitch-height 1.0
│ :bold-family nil ; use whatever the underlying face has
│ :bold-weight bold
│ :italic-family nil
│ :italic-slant italic
│ :line-spacing nil)
When the relevant attributes of `fixed-pitch-serif' are not
specified, they fall back to the values of the `default' face.
Note that `fixed-pitch-serif' is not used by my `modus-themes' and
`ef-themes' because I think it looks awful out-of-the-box (a bitmap
font on the GNU/Linux distros I used). One can still modify any
face to inherit from `fixed-pitch-serif', if they want to.
⁃ Introduced the command `fontaine-apply-current-preset' and wrote a
relevant entry in the manual on how to "Persist font configurations
on theme switch". Relevant quote from the manual:
Themes re-apply face definitions when they are loaded.
This is necessary to render the theme. For certain
faces, such as `bold' and `italic', it means that their
font family may be reset (depending on the
particularities of the theme).
To avoid such a problem, we can arrange to restore the
current font preset which was applied by
`fontaine-set-preset'. Fontaine provides the command
`fontaine-apply-current-preset'. It can either be
called interactively after loading a theme or be
assigned to a hook that is ran at the post `load-theme'
Some themes that provide a hook are the `modus-themes'
and `ef-themes' (both by Protesilaos), so we can use
something like: […]
⁃ The once private variable `fontaine--current-preset' is now made
public by means of a rename to `fontaine-current-preset'. In
practical terms, this tells advanced users that they can rely on the
presence of this variable and/or on the fact that changes to it will
be documented accordingly.
My current configuration as of 2022-09-07 17:56 +0300, which might
give you some ideas:
#+begin_src emacs-lisp (require 'fontaine)
