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


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.



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



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 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 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 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 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 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
