A list of workflow or tool preferences that I use on the daily.
MacBook Pro 2019
A beastly machine with the keyboard that dies from dust. (Yes, it happened to me).
I use all the main ones (Chrome, Firefox, Safari). Google Chrome mostly for development work, and Safari for non-work browsing.
I’m proficient in a several, but my favourites are:
I like it. I’ve written a couple of libraries using it. Still getting used to it.
Everything is in my dotfiles! Everything.
I like how I can save the configurations into my dotfiles. Not to mention, I’ve spent many hours fine tuning things to make it look just right.
I have it. I try it out every now and then. I find it to be slower compared to iTerm. Plus, my Vim settings/colours clash with the Terminal UI.
I use my own. Like I said… many hours spent.
I was a heavy Vim user for several years. My decision to switch over to something… non-Vim… came from the realization that I would often forget how to type normally, without using Vim commands.
My emails, notes, Pull Request descriptions, would have
jjjjjjjjjjjj all over the place.
VS Code Theme?
My own! Old habits die hard.
This. My goodness, what a brilliant piece of tech this is. I use this all the time for “sketching” my code ideas.
An absolutely amazing app for drawing on an iPad with an Apple pencil. This app made me fall in love with digital illustration again.
Adobe Creative Cloud
Absolutely hate it - especially Illustrator. I’ve tried many alternatives, but nothing really compares in terms of features. I’ve been a user since Photosop 6/7, before the
Creative Suite Creative Cloud days. I feel miserable every I have to use Illustrator.
It’s fine. I mean it’s good. But for UI work, I prefer designing and prototyping with code.
