Uses

Inspired by the massive uses collection initiated by @wesbos, I decided to partizipate and share my own uses collection.

So on this page I'm gonna share all the software and hardware I use almost everyday.

Software

  • My current editor is Visual Studio Code with the Night Owl Theme. I use Menlo as my main font.

  • I use zsh as my terminal with oh-my-zsh to manage the configuration. Currently I'm using the avit theme.

  • I was a long time Chrome user but switched to the Firefox developer edition as my main browser a few years ago and never regretted it. I like the dev tools way more. For example showing CSS that has no effect is such a great feature.

  • I switch back to Chrome whenever I want to do a lighthouse audit.

  • I use postman to test my APIs.

Services

  • For Hosting and deployment I use Netlify and Vercel. They are both amazing services that takes away so much configuration and just help me ship my code as fast as possible.

  • For purchasing new domains I use Namecheap.

Hardware

Here is a photo of my desk setup.

  • At the end of 2020 and a lot of time in the home office, I deciced it's time to upgrade to a standing desk. I bought the Fully Jarvis Bamboo standing desk and never looked back.

  • It offers so much customization, like storing the height of your standing position. So it's an absolute recommendation!

  • I used a very flexible chair for a long time. At some point I deciced to get a "real" chair. As I'm using this chair almost everyday for 8 hours I decided to invest a little more and bought the Steelcase gesture.

  • I'm using the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro with the 2,6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 and 16 GB of memory.

  • I use a Dell 4K 32" monitor as my main monitor. Currently I have the MacBook right in front of it and use the keyboard of it.

  • I'm thinking about getting a mechanical keyboard and a mouse so I can set the MacBook to the right side of my monitor.

  • My current favourite mouse is the Logitech MX 3 Master.
