I take my Emacs configuration with me on every computer I use. I also plug a big external display —and the awesome Das Keyboard 4 Ultimate— during long coding sessions, so it is only natural that I have to tailor my setup to accommodate different font sizes.

(defun mu-setup-main-fonts (default-height variable-pitch-height) "Set up default fonts. Use DEFAULT-HEIGHT for default face and VARIABLE-PITCH-HEIGHT for variable-pitch face." (set-face-attribute 'default nil :family "Source Code Pro" :height default-height) (set-face-attribute 'variable-pitch nil :family "Fira Sans" :height variable-pitch-height :weight 'regular))
