This page is a short summary of all the important stuff I use. The idea is that I only mention the stuff I would miss if I lost it(or stopped working for the software stuff).

Hardware

Services

  • Github. Awesome Git hosting
  • Linode virtual servers. Great host, no bull shit, not fancy, but they do exactly what it says on the tin
  • 1Password. The best password management solution I know about. Both from a security and UX stand point. Awesome for solo and team use
  • Pinboard.in _The best bookmarking servie ever, I use it for bookmarks
  • Instapaper.
  • Apple Music
  • iCloud for photos

Social Stuff

  • Micro.blog. /Micro.blog is the only social network stuff I’m doing at the moment. It feel a lot like twitter in the good old days. And it is powered by blogs instead of a centralized system./

Blogging

  • Hugo
  • Ox hugo
  • FeedPress. A great service if you want feed stats or want to keep the same feed url no matter if you change CMS or not.

Coding (apps)

  • Emacs. My go to text editor at the time, it’s powerful, I use it for almost everything; including reading email.
  • iTerm 2 Like terminal.app with better UI and some extra functionality, like splitting both directions.
  • ZSH. My favourite shell, awesome with Oh-my-zsh
  • git. SCM. Don’t love it, but better than the rest
  • Paw. Awesome GUI app for OS X for interacting with web api’s.
  • Homebrew. The best package manager for OS X
  • Rider

Coding (languages and stack)

  • C# / .NET Core. /Great for developing larger stuff, with a strongly typed language. It’s a lot more like Django or Rails than it used to be/
  • React / Redux / Webpack /My favourite way to build Web Apps at the moment. It’s easy to write stuff really fast and it scales to larger projects./
  • I currently use node for all my command line scripting stuff because npx makes it so easy to keep things in sync.n

Coding / Server stuff

  • Docker.
  • Nginx
  • PostgreSQL.
  • Redis

Other Mac Apps

  • Drafts
  • Alfred. My go to launcher, more powerful than Spotlight and easier to get into than the others.
  • Arq. An app to take backups of your computer, but you control where it’s stored.
  • Karabiner Elements The app I use to re-map my CAPS LOCK to shift.*
  • Amphetamine A modern version of Caffine. Keeps my Mac from going to sleep
  • Moom. My Window manager, I mostly use it to resize windows with keyboard shortcuts.

Photography

  • Silver Fast. /The scanner software I use to scan negatives. It looks like shit, is a pain in the ass to deal with but the results are awesome./
  • Photos.app. I add JPEG of all my raw files and TIFF scans to Photos. It’s great to browse photos.
