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



  • iTerm + oh my zsh + z
  • screen (tough rarely locally, basically always on remote servers)
  • jq to manipulate or display JSON in the console

Editor: Sublime Text 3 until super recently, though I'm loving Visual Studio Code more and more.

Chrome extensions:

  • Lastpass for personal and work logins
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • Full page screen capture, useful if you have to send screenshots of a scrolling page to someone

Various tools:

  • Slack
  • Tomighty desktop timer for the Pomodoro technique
  • Postman for API

Not much else...


Jq is actually fantastic.

iTerm is definitely a staple. My only gripe is that the text select + scroll is completely broken. Makes searching logs difficult.
