This is an infrequently updated (last: December 2nd, 2020) list of tools I use / apps I like. I currently exist in an entirely Apple/iOS/Mac world so it’s irrelevant to Windows / Linux users for now.
Apps I would recommend to anyone:
- Bear for note taking.
- Things 3 for todo lists.
- Procreate for drawing.
- 1Password for saving passwords and sharing documents with the family in a secure place.
- iA Writer for long form writing.
- News Explorer for reading RSS feeds.
Apps I use as a developer:
- iTerm 2 as a replacement for the default Terminal.
- Visual Studio Code with:
- the Moonlight II italic theme
- Project Manager
- Bracket Pair Colorizer 2
- Homebrew to install things on MacOS without borking the entire system.
- Alfred for a bunch of weird little tasks, mostly text snippets but also launching apps in a particular state or running small scripts / automations.
- Magnet for arranging windows.
I’m currently working on projects built with:
- Two Vue SPAs on top of a .NET backend with a Contentful integration.
- Next JS deployed to Netlify.
- Gatsby deployed to Netlify with Storyblok and Simplecast integrations.
