Uses

Published on - 1 min read

I am often asked how my dev setup is and to be honest, coming from both Apple and Windows, there are a couple of things I use on my day-to-day basis. I tried to list out everything I use to the detail of all my uses.

Editor + Terminal

  • Visual Studio Code is my current editor for everything web related
  • I also use WebStorm extensively at work
  • I use Material Theme for both the aforementioned editors
  • I use cmder on Windows, terminal on Mac
  • I'm currently using Fira Code for all my editors, including it's Ligatures
  • Most used browser is Chrome, and I usually also use Edge and Firefox for cross-browser testing

Desktop Apps
