If you’ve ever wondered what I’m using be it software, hardware, fonts, etc. then this page is dedicated for that 😉 Based on

Hardware #

  • MacBook Pro M1 (16-inch, 2021). Previously MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017)
  • Logitech M585. Previously Logitech M337. I don’t need a fancy mouse as I have a keyboard centric workflow
  • iPhone 11 & Samsung Galaxy S20+

Software (Desktop Apps and CLI tools) #

  • (neo)vim – Currently my main $EDITOR.
  • tmux – a terminal multiplexer. I use it together with (neo)vim. Makes seamless switching from one project to another.
  • fish – a friendly iinteractive shell. My current $SHELL.
  • ripgrep – better replacement for grep. Also written in Rust.
  • fzf – an awesome fuzzy finder written in Go!
  • fd – a faster alternative to find. I also use it together with fzf.
  • eza – a modern (?) replacement for ls. It’s been pretty good so far
  • bat – a cat clone that supports syntax highlighting. I also use it in combination with fzf.
  • mise – my go to tool for managing multiple versions of languages I use.
  • universal-ctags – for generating tags file when working on projects. Pretty fast
  • kitty – Previously used alacritty and iTerm2
  • raycast – can’t say it’s better than Alfred but it’s free and I’ve been happily using it! I also use this as a replacement for rectangle
  • bitwarden – an open source password manager. I think I started using pw managers around October 2019.
  • kap – a screen recorder. I usually use it for recording GIFs when reporting issues to open-source projects.
  • keycastr – displays pressed keys on screen. I use it when I do live demos (which I haven’t done so far. LOL!)
  • karabiner-elements – for remapping Caps Lock to Esc when pressed alone and Control when pressed with other keys. Pretty neat!
  • brew – awesome package manager that I use to install for the above packages.

Others #

  • I use Microsoft Edge because of the vertical tabs! Previously used Google Chrome and Firefox
  • I am currently using SauceCodePro Nerd Font Mono for my font.
  • My go to colorscheme is Catppuccin. Previously used kanagawa and One Dark
  • For browser extensions I use:
    • uBlock Origin
    • Bitwarden
    • Grammarly
    • Vimium – for vim keybindings while browsing
    • wasavi – for converting text areas into vim
    • Visbug – pretty neat tool for frontend development
