What I used to build this site
While I don’t write much PHP these days; it still holds a special place in my heart as my first language I ever really got to grips with. I still watch what happens in the Laravel ecosystem.
I’ve been through all the IDE’s and text editors but now that I write multiple languages I find Code to be the best at the moment. The theme I use is Night Owl. After trailing using Jet Brains Mono I’ve moved back to Fira Code. Fira Code feels a bit more friendly. You can check out my settings on my Gist profile.
This is terminal and has been for years. The design improvements in >v3.3 are cracking. I use ZSH as my shell, with Night Owl and Fira Code for the styling.
I resisted Notion for a long time. I didn’t get it. It was slow and clunky compared to other note taking apps. Also; the task management was not as slick as Todoist/Things/etc. That said after watching some YouTube videos things started to click. I’m a month or so in now and I am enjoying it. Having tasks and notes in the same place is nice.
The nicest password manager I’ve used.
All my mail and calendar needs are met with Spark.
