How I setup a new machine for development

Recently I purchased the new Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58 as my Lenovo Yoga 720-13ikb 80x6 can no longer support my development needs. As this is my first blog I hope this is not cringey.

Machine: Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58
Operating System: Windows 11, Fedora 36
Editors: VS Code, Sublime Text, Android Studio, IntelliJ Idea
Programming Languages: Python, Flutter, Java, JavaScript, Node
Productivity: Cron Calendar, Notion, Anytype, Spotify, Discord, Todoist
Extensions: Vitesse Theme, Flutter, Python, Prettier, Carbon Product Icons, Codesnap
Other Apps: Postman, Chrome, Brave

Write you own setup down below 👇

I wrote an article about this not too long ago.

TL:DR - Linux 20.04 on a Lenovo Ideapad, 16 GB ram, VSCode, ZSH. Mainly for JS/TS Vue development, soon Rust. Lots of apps focused on productivity and writing stuff down.

VS Code is my main editor. I use it for heavy weight projects and I use sublime for light weight projects for example a simple html css website
