Using two fonts in VS Code: One for Emphasized Italics

Blinged out VS Code
The theme used (that has the glow effect option) is SynthWave ‘84

I love the code ligatures of JetBrains Mono and Fira Code, but I was disappointed at the subtle italics. I also didn’t want to shell out $199 for the font, Operator Mono. I, therefore, found a better option. Using two coding fonts with ligatures.

Please be aware, any time VS Code is updated to a new version or you update the CSS, repeat steps 16–18.

Due to Medium limitations of numbered lists, for better-formatted instructions, you can see the post on my personal site here

If you like this, Clap for me! If you implement this, what font combos are you using? Tell me below.
