some great suggestions here! I'll just list ones not seen already:

  • fish shell - out of box you already get what you have to spend more time configuring w oh my zsh
  • homebrew - package manager for MacOS
  • pypyr - for automating & running and consolidating ad hoc scripts. (I might be biased on this one, I wrote it 😂)
  • GitHub Actions - you mention GitHub already, but special mention to the relatively new GitHub Actions for the awesome free CI/CD capabilities. Oh, also GitHub Pages!
  • hugo - static web-site generation
  • zopfli compression - great for PNG compression. Although, that's prob just about been supplanted by Brotli today.
  • arch linux

[edit:] oh, and curl, definitely

Definitely Atom and SourceTree! For learning, I like to recommend codingbat for beginners who are totally new to code.

Just kidding, it's a personal preference. But you can change your theme, font, etc. in your settings.

The more you know. 🌈
