I change things up pretty often. That being the case, I will try to update this when I find new favorite things. 🙃

I love reading about other people’s workflow’s and the tools they use so I decided to create my own. This page could look completely different next week, but it’s filled with what I like the most right now.

Table of Contents

Software

For everyday things I will typically use the native mac mail, calendar, etc apps. Here are a few exceptions:

Editor / Terminal

  • PyCharm: The best Python IDE out there right now in my opinion.
  • Atom: This is just a great text editor. I’m using while creating this page right now actually!
  • NeoVim: This fork of NeoVim is fantastic, but I found myself using PyCharm more due to random memory leaks. Which I’m 💯 certain is my fault.
  • iTerm2: I only use the hotkey quake term feature. I can’t live without it.

Command Line Utilities

  • tmux: A terminal multiplexer.
  • hub: Created by github for turbo charging your github work flow.
  • ghi: Create and view github issues in the terminal!
  • ack: Search for code usages through your codebase.
  • TodoTxt: A command line app to keep track of daily todo lists.

  • Bear: A beautiful app for taking notes via Markdown. Unfortunately only for Mac and iOS.
  • Rocket: A popup emoji picker to keep my emoji game strong. 🔥
  • BetterSnapTool: Think windows app snapping.
