Here is a list of the tools I use to Get Things Done™

Inspired by this post from Wes Bos.


Visual Studio Code (I have a license for Nova, and I like it a lot, but a lot of the extensions I use below haven't been ported over, plus the keyboard bindings are a little different. I'd love to use a native Mac app instead of an Electron one, and Panic are a great indie software maker that I'd love to support, but right now it doesn't have to features I need to be productive).

Theme: Night Owl

Font: iA Writer Mono (This changes from time to time, I'm also a big fan of; IBM Plex Mono, JetBrains Mono and Source Code Pro).

Must Have Extension:


Brave is pretty decent, it's basically Google Chrome without all the gross Google stuff (I actually prefer Safari, but I have to admit the dev tools aren't as good, and some website that I have to use for work don't work as well in it).
