In our application, we adhere to Material Design as much as possible. But the Material Design specification doesn't include any information about a monospaced font. I need to render a set of tables with numbers that change periodically, and stay perfectly lined up. That seems like a job for a monospaced font, but neither Roboto or Noto have monospace options.

What's a good approach to monospace within Material Design? Is there a better approach to keeping columns of numbers straight?


Google's Roboto Font has a Monospaced Variation known as Roboto Mono:

This will be perfectly valid while following Material Design guidelines.
