My favorite tools

June 26, 2019

This is a list of tools I use frequently.

On my computer

  • Arch Linux: lightweight and customisable Operating System
  • Firefox: Honestly the best browser available on desktop
  • i3: lightweight and efficient window manager, definitely not for everyone but I couldn’t use another one
  • Vim: my favorite editor, the learning curve is quite challenging but once you begin to know it well it is awesome

On my phone

No games and distracting apps (such as social media) away from the welcome screen

  • Audible: to listen audiobooks while comuting or walking in the city
  • Google Tasks: my minimalist todo list (using GTD)
  • Signal: to safely and privately communicate

Services I use

  • Evernote: as my external brain
  • Feedly: to follow updates on many sources that interest me
  • Fluent Forever / Duolingo / Memrise: to learn new languages
  • Spotify: my music streaming platform of choice, the company has a great mindset and is agile in a stunning way
