This is an ever-changing list of technologies that I currently prefer to use. Check out what other developers are using at uses.tech

Languages & Frameworks

I use JavaScript to solve problems. When scripting or writing CLI's, I'll usually go with my first love Ruby, but I'm doing more and more with Node.js. I put a lot of focus on writing semantic HTML with an emphasis on accessibility. When writing CSS, I prefer using Tailwind CSS.

I like to use Vue.js superpowered by Nuxt.js for basically any type of frontend I'm building - whether single-page applications or static sites. For backend API's, I prefer to use Ruby on Rails. I use MJML for crafting HTML emails easily.

Editor & Terminal

Neovim is my editor, used almost exclusively inside tmux. I manage workspaces using tmuxinator and vim sessions and use zsh as my shell.

I use iTerm as my terminal emulator with the base16-snazzy colorscheme and JetBrains Mono Nerd Font. I use base16-shell to seamlessly manage colors for all my work in the terminal.

Apps

I like working with as small a subset of tools as possible, to really master them. That's why I use Alfred as the central piece in almost all my macOS-related workflows. I use it for launching applications, snippet expansion, as a universal clipboard manager, for file-related actions, web and document searches, running system commands and numerous other personal workflows.

I also use Better Touch Tool for mapping hotkeys and trackpad gestures. For most of my automation needs, I use an open-source Hazel alternative call organize with a few simple rules to manage my folders.

I use DEVONthink Pro for syncing bookmarks across browsers and document management, and I use Things as my primary todo-list application.

I use Figma for wireframing and prototyping projects.

Desk & Other Gear

My current workhorse is a 2020 Mac mini 6-core i7 upgraded to 32GB RAM connected to a Dell Ultrasharp 2720Q 4K monitor. I use an Apple Magic Trackpad 2 and a wireless Keychron K2 mechanical keyboard.

My desktop audio setup is intentionally simple: I use a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-MT40x professional monitor headphones for their detailed clarity, usually paired with the iFi Zen DAC and headphone amp.
