My favorite tools

September 29, 2018

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 Podcasts: I love its minimalism and synchronisation along multiple devices
  • Signal: to safely and privately communicate
  • Simpletask: my todo list (using GTD)

Services I use

  • Evernote: as my external brain
  • Feedly: to follow updates on many sources that interest me
  • Pocket: to store articles I want to read later
