re: What apps, software, or tools do you use and why? VIEW POST


Thought I add tools not yet mentioned or mentioned not so often.
Shifting to Visual Studio Code for my small projects. I like that it is intuitive and powerful.
Whenever there is a repetitive editing task, I switch back to emacs and its ability to record keyboard macros, because it is so much faster than writing a text processor with sed, awk asf.
I like umlet for sketching software designs.
I use snagit for screen captures.
Sometimes I use autohotkey for tasks that I can not automate any other way.
Powershell is a crazy language, but its access to the complete windows environment is worth some pain.
git bash when I get homesick for the good ol Unix days
