Stack

This page is a compilation of all the tools that I use day-to-day in no particular order. Silicon Valley creations, ended up being abandoned or behind paywall to meet investors' goals.

iA Writer

Open-source

It's my favorite tool for taking notes. It's native to the platform, minimalist, the content is written in Markdown, and notes synchronize across devices.

VSCode

Open-source

It's my favorite code editor when I'm not doing Swift development. It's fast, extensible, customizable, and works incredibly well with Typescript.

Firefox

Open-source

I settled on Firefox as my default browser because their principles around privacy align with mine, their developer tools are great, and I'm a huge fan of their engineering.

Pocket Casts

From all the podcast apps that I tried, Pocket Casts it he one that I liked the most. The iOS app works incredibly well, and it synchronizes with the web app so I can continue listening to podcasts on the browser while working.

GatsbyJS

Open-source

GatsbyJS became my favorite tool to build static websites. It's built upon React, which allows reusing many community components and tools, has a plugins ecosystem that allows reusing utilities built by other developers, and it's incredibly easy to deploy with platforms like Vercel and Netlify.

Figma

Figma is go-tool for designing. What I like about it is that it's designed towards collaboration. You can share a link with someone and they can open it without having to install an app in their environment. Moreover, you get access to a pool of community resources that you can start your designs from.

NetNewsWire

Open-source

NetNewsWire is my favorite RSS reader. It works on iOS and macOS, it's designed following Apple's human interface guidelines, and it's open-source. Moreover, I'm fan of its creator blog.

GitHub

GitHub is my favorite remote Git provider. I built my curriculum into it. I got very used to the product, its interface, and I provides everything I need when building software: pull requests, issues, discussions, continuous integration.

Rails

Rails is my go-to full-stack web framework. It's written in Ruby, a programming language that I love. It provides utilities for most of common operations web services have to perform, and can be easily deployed to platforms like Heroku
