🎉 thank you for this. new macbook didn't have Consolas and I thought PT Mono would be the same but it just wasn't the same.

Thanks for this instruction for downloading & installing this font. However I'm missing the bold and italics variations.

I used https://ikato.com/blog/how-to-install-consolas-font-on-mac-os-x.html to mange this problem. unfortunately the download link PowerPointViewer.exe did not work anymore; so I googled on PowerPointViewer.exe and found a working version which I could use.

Disadvantage: this method uses homebrew (https://brew.sh/); But I can not image an developer MacOS without homebrew ;-)

Installing it on my mac made the font on github code preview to change and now it's too small 😞 how can I fix this?
