Uses

Desk

Custom made extra deep desk, with foot rest and Ikea chair.

On the desk

I use a 2019 15in Macbook Pro (always in calmshell position in a MOSISO laptop stand). Connected to that are 2 AOC monitors on monitor arms. One is 27in and the other 24in. There is nothing special about them.

I use a Realforce 87u keyboard and a Logitech MX mouse.

Lighting is provided by a vintage Anglepoise desk lamp and an LED strip behind the desk.

Other bits include:

  • Logitech C920 webcam
  • Blue Yeti Nano Mic
  • Cambridge Audio amp and speakers
  • Hakko soldering iron
  • Epson V800 film scanner

Software

I do all my development in a terminal, leaning on iTerm2 with NeoVim and Tmux.

I ported my favourite theme to Vim and Iterm2. My dotfiles can be found here. I use the awesome Dank Mono

My essential cli tools include:

  • autojump : A cd command that learns - easily navigate directories from the command line
  • bat : A cat(1) clone with wings.
  • fzf : A command-line fuzzy finder
  • ripgrep : ripgrep recursively searches directories for a regex pattern
  • htop : an interactive process viewer for Unix systems
  • httpie : a command-line HTTP client
  • jq : jq is a lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor

Other software

For creative things:

I like to keep my EDC simple.

  • Leuchtturm1917 notebook: Small dotted

  • Kaweco Classic Sport Rollerball: Stunning pen

  • Keys

  • Olympus XA: Best small 35mm camera money can buy

  • Citizen Promaster Aqualand watch: A gift from my mum
