Re: [O] org-src-fontify-natively (was: org-mode in the press)

I investigated this and found that this may almost be fixed by doing:

;; Make all font-lock faces fonts use inconsolata
(dolist (face '(font-lock-builtin-face    
  (set-face-attribute face nil :family my-default-family))

But unfortunately not fully, because both source code (at least in python) and org-mode make use of the default font. And since I change this at org-mode startup to the "variable-pitch" the result is that I inherit this in the source code blocks as well.

A solution would be that all org-mode faces would inherit a common org-mode-face. You could then customize this font to a variable-pitch without using the ~variable-pitch-mode~ command. Is this feasible?

Great! That must be a new addition that I missed. It is not perfect though, as I use a variable font for org-mode, which is inherited by the embedded source code block when I turn on org-src-fontify-natively . Is there any way of preventing that so blocks are always in e.g. Inconsolata?

I found that the block background color may be changed by org-block-background which is nice to make a visual distinction of source code sections!

It is possible, just add the following to your Emacs configuration.

(setq org-src-fontify-natively t)
