What I use

Curious about my setup? The software I use daily? Here's a list where you can check that.

I like to have a different environment separated from my work. This helps me to not feel I'm always working or I'm doing something personal then I don't need to get too focused.

Although, there are a bunch of things I use in both environments. Here they are:

Software

Peripherals


Work environment (macOS)

Hardware

  • MacBook PRO 2019 15-inch;
  • Intel Core i7 2.6GHz;
  • 16GB RAM DDR;
  • Radeon Pro 555X 4GB;

Software

  • iTerm2 - amazing macOS terminal;
  • zsh + "Oh My ZSH!" - terminal framework;
  • Alfred4 (no powerpack) - this is an amazing search bar tool that helps you find files, open apps, search at google, etc.;
  • Bartender3 - menu bar icons organizer;
  • RunCat - shows nicely the CPU usage;
  • BeFocused - timer to do pomodoro technique;
  • Clipy - open-source clipboard extension. Allow you to keep the history of your CTRL + C;

  • runjs - local JavaScript REPL. I use it when I need to run a JS code quickly;

Home environment (Windows + WSL2)

Since Feb 2020 I'm using Windows with Ubuntu via Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). If you don't know what is it, in a nutshell, WSL is a way to install and use Linux natively (no virtual machine) inside Windows.

It allows me to have the perfect world where I can use Windows to do things not code related and use a Unix environment to code.

Anyways, here's my home setup:

  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB RAM DDR4;
