Apps, services, and hardware I use every day:


  • Editor: Atom I had been a loyal Panic Coda user for over a decade, however the customization and keyboard shortcuts for hackable editors had me switching overnight and never looking back. I chose Atom over Sublime because of it’s Electron base, and the seeming rise in it’s popularity, and being open source. My setup is as follows:
    • Theme: One Dark, sword-syntaxHacker font
    • Snippets: here.
    • Packages: ascii-art, atom-beautify, atom-minify, atom-wordpress, atom-wpcodex, auto-update-packages, autocomplete-wordpress-hooks, caniuse, color-picker, colorful-json, css-color-name, custom-title, data-atom, docblockr, editor-stats, editorconfig, emmet, file-icons, gist, highlight-line, highlight-selected, html-to-css, intentions, jquery-snippets, language-javascript-jsx, language-todofile, less-compiler, linter, lipsum, multi-cursor, pastel-dark-theme, php-cs-fixer, pigments, platformio-ide-terminal, project-manager, react, remote-ftp, rest-client, todo-show, toggle-quotes, zentabs
  • Task Management: I use .todo or files within my tasks within each projects/servers. Then Apple Notes to manage all my projects, and personal things.
  • Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop + Lightroom) for designing
  • SIP App for extracting colours
  • iCloud Drive for personal files
  • Slack for work related discussions and assignments (almost no email these days)
  • Google Drive for clients files and shared resources
  • OneDrive for client archives
  • Little Snitch for reducing and monitoring network
  • Parallels for Microsoft Edge testing, and an Ubuntu playground
  • and then just the normal macOS stock apps: Automator, Safari, KeyChain Access,  iTunes (with Apple Music subscription)
  • Localhost


    • Docked Retina MacBook Pro 15″ (Early 2013 2.7 / 16 / 256)
