As there are a lot of tools on the market, both free and paid, it is sometimes hard to find the best fit.
I would like to know what are your favorite tools that help you as a developer. This can be in any way. It can be a general productivity tool or a language-specific IDE for example. I just like to know, what are your "weapons of choice".
I will start with mine:
(I am a Java / JVM developer by trade, working on Mac. This might reflect some of my tool-choices.)
for installing software on my mac
Installing and switching between different SDK's
Checking for security vulnerabilities
Managing the layout of my screen.
Rest API client
Yes, I like slack ... and I try to integrate as much as possible in it.
(pro tip: the "remind me later" option 🤓)
I can go on and on about other tools, but these are the tools I use on a daily bases. (I might even forget 1 or 2). I am curious about your list.
