It would take forever to describe all the software I use regularly, but here's the stuff I consider to be most important...

Principles 📖

I try to keep things as simple as possible when it comes to the software I use. This hasn't always been the case, but I'm now using these principles to guide my decisions:

  1. Prefer web-based tools to installable tools. Tha ability to log in and work on any machine is huge, and reduces reliance on my laptop.
  2. Use the right tool for the job, but balance against the complexity cost of introducing a new tool.
  3. Prefer default configs over complicated custom setups.

Core Stuff 📕

These tools form the base on which most of my other stuff works. I use them every day.

General 📔

These tools have a supporting role, and I couldn't do without them. I happily pay for many of these.
