Development tools

Editor

Doom Emacs is my current Emacs distribution of choice.

I use evil-mode which means Emacs is controlled with vim keybindings.

Whenever I don't feel like using Emacs, or don't have it installed, I usually reach for Sublime Text, neovim or even nano

I have no issue with VS Code and it's a great tool but there's generally nothing I can't already do in a different editor so 🤷‍♀️

Hardware

Home

Desktop

A decently powerful custom built desktop running Pop!_OS. It's a really nice Linux distribution, based on Ubuntu, and I highly recommend giving it a try if you're looking for something new.

Laptop

I generally use a MacBook Pro 13-inch (2015) for any personal projects and general browsing.

Phone

I swear I have ADHD when it comes to phones.

Currently, I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S20 running Android 10 and Niagara Launcher

It's actually pretty nice considering Samsung UX can often be a little hit or miss.

Work

Laptop

Currently I'm using a MacBook Pro 13-inch (2019) as my daily driver for work.

It's a placeholder while I wait for my intended laptop to arrive from overseas. I think it's a 2020 Macbook Pro but no idea what kind of configuration.

Phone

For my work phone, I'm using an iPhone SE (2020)

It's under its own apple account as is the laptop above to save my work tabs mixing up with my home tabs

Software

Shell

Often I switch around a bit but I'm currently running stock zsh

Stock in the sense that I'm not running Oh My Zsh! but rather just a small handwritten configuration file.

I'm not running anything fancy as far as terminals: stock macOS terminal and whatever ships with Pop!_OS by default.
