    I have been using it for years. It is just most straightforward clever zen experience there is. Bastian the creator used to be designer and it shows in all the decisions. It is not overengineered. It's transparent - most importantly to me it is very clear to understand what is going on. It is especially fast if you are doing custom design all the way. I run my life on Kirby.

    From my portfolio and selling my fonts

    to this map type of thing

    or like this i did for friends

    Hell i even use kirby for my internal invoicing. You can just throw at it anything and it will hold up.

    I have tried all the Wordpreses, Drupals, Bolts, Crafts, Statamics of the world and everything is just a littlebit more hurdles.

    Add to that fact that it has great support and it cost HALF of what most competition costs..

    It feels like its some secret i don't know why more people are not using it.

    This has been always possible with kirby.

    Working with kirby is very much like if you were working with nosql db where every record by default is also URL/route endpoint (it does not have to be you can have all routing you want).

    You don't have to output HTML. Kirby does not enforce templating engine so you can straight up output json on those routes.

    But there might be even better ways

    Can you explain why you think so?

    Awesome. I am not sure it will be good for UI system. It is quite characteristic. But it could work for smaller apps.

    But for sites with character it is nice typeface and possible nice pair with the Space Mono.

    Do you know about any projects that use it?

    But from one of the best type designers in the world. I think Circular is much more timeless and will last.

    The typeface just got new name. It used to be called Space Text which we later found out was very hard to find for people. So this is just more refined version with different name.

    I am not sure what you mean by "actual shapes, imho"?

    There are no plans for cyrillic extensions but contributors are welcome. It might happen if client who payed for creation of Space Grotesk will want cyrillic.

    Important to mention this is text version of Space Mono by Colophon. Another open-source typeface. Actually one commisioned by Google for their Google Fonts collection. https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Space+Mono

    The lowercase g is one of the prominent characteristics. The Space Grotesk tries to stay true to the Space Mono but it is very different typeface. Most of it is completely redrawn.
