Current toolkit

Here are some tools I use in my day-to-day development:

  • Alfred – clipboard history, snippets, hotkeys, and other things.
  • CodeSandbox – to test an idea / package, or replicate an issue in an isolated environment.
  • caniuse – to check if some CSS or JS is supported enough to be used.
  • Excalidraw – to make visualizations.
  • Google Calendar – to manage schedule and reminders. Very flexible tool that can do so much.
  • Fonts Ninja – Chrome extension to quickly detect fonts on a page.
  • iTerm – terminal emulator. Just gotten used to it now though not sure it’s much better than default terminal.
  • JetBrains IDEs – PHPStorm, Webstorm, Pycharm, IntelliJ – depending on the project.
  • LastPass – Password manager
  • Lucidchart – to make flowcharts / visualize complex processes
  • Postman – for working with REST APIs
  • Roam Research – for note-taking / freewriting
  • – to take screenshots
  • SourceTree – to go through Git changes carefully
  • TablePlus – to work with SQL databases.
  • Wappalyzer – to see what technologies a website uses.
  • Vim – vim-mode all the things.

Tools to checkout

  • Browserstack – worth the price if you need to test on different devices & platforms which you mostly need to as a front-end dev. Saves time compared to setting up virtual machines.
  • BetterSnapTool
  • Kap – screen recording tool
