Editor & Terminal

Editor:

Visual Studio Code is my code editor of choice. Paired with the wonderful night-owl theme by Sarah Drasner, I couldn't ask for more.

Terminal:

I have both iTerm2 and hyper and honestly, I love them both. Which one I use really depends on which comes to mind first when I need a terminal. That said, I've been using Fig mostly in the last couple of weeks, I just like the auto completioning capabilities.

Apps

1Password is my password manager of choice. I go introduced to password managers this year, I started off with 1Password and I don't think I'll ever go back to managing my passwords on my own again.

Calendar: Google Calendar and Clockwise pairs up really nicely to give me all the things I need. I've heard of fancier calendar tools that I should probably check out some time but I'll stick with those until then.

Collaboration: Slack and Discord
