Seems that a lot of developers are creating these /uses pages after discovering Wes Bos’s /uses page.

My favorite of these happens to be from Jon Suh. His /uses page includes a photo, which is what I did here.

I’m finally doing big girl work at a company so I was able to upgrade everything, and will soon upgrade the iMac.


Gear

Let’s start with my gear.

Software

  • VS Code
  • Nova Editor for macOS
    • Yes, I paid $$$ for a text editor. It’s feature rich and native to macOS, which I usually don’t care about. However, you can’t deny the speed increase and easing of stress on your CPU and RAM. Plus, it’s beautiful.
  • Oh My Zsh
    • I will never use a terminal without this installed.
  • Boom 3D
    • This makes everything sound amazing.
  • Chrome
  • Alfred
    • Workflows make this my favorite app. I can’t live without it. You can find my workflows here. I have way too many, I admit.
  • Text Expander
  • Todoist for tasks.2
  • Notion for Project management.3
  • Drafts
  • Fantastical for scheduling. I pay for the premium version.
  • Sip for Mac for a color picker
  • ScreenFlow
    • As I get into making egghead lessons and more screencasts for tiffany.blog, I need a heavy duty piece of software to do so. Screenflow fits the bill.
  • StreamLabs OBS Software for Mac
    • Best OBS client on the Mac.
  • CloudApp
    • This is how I share bugs and other things with devs and dev teams. Also an easy way to make a gif of a feature or bug on my Mac.
  • Setapp
    • It finally has enough utilities to make it worth the subscription price for me.

I Use a lot of software, I admit

But I use ALL OF IT.

So this is my setup and what I am currently using. You can show me your dev setup on Twitter.

       
  1. The latency of the HomePods when watching video on my Mac was atrocious. I bought my favorite bookshelf speakers again and couldn’t be happier. Still have the HomePods when I want to have apartment filling sound with AirPlay 2 Sonos Play:5 2nd Gen, Sonos One, and the two black HomePods I use as home theater audio with my Apple TV. It’s a party for sure. 😉 

  2. This is the only task manager that I actually look at and use. It is that beautiful, simple, and it has impressed me far more than any task manager in recent memory. 

  3. This is such a deep app and I am in love with it. After avoiding it because I was a heavy user of Evernote and quite liked it, there were things that annoyed me about it. Everyone talked about this app, Notion and I signed up. Been using it for two weeks and I have paid the subscription. It’s that good. Still setting it up but here’s my dashboard
