Uses

This page is inspired by Wes Bos and his uses” page. 

Edi­tor & Terminal

  • VSCode is what I use most often for cod­ing HTML, JS and CSS.
  • PHP­Storm is what I turn to when doing PHP which is almost always in the con­text of work­ing on a Craft CMS plugin
  • Sub­lime Text is my day to day text edi­tor. Yes, this seems like overkill, but it just so fast and unfussy.
  • iTerm 2 con­fig­ured with Oh My Zsh

Desk­top Apps

  • I’m a huge fan of Alfred.
  • Key­board Maestro
  • Car­bon Copy Clon­er — for onsite night­ly backups
  • Canary — I use this on both my Mac and iOS devices. Set­ting up sign­ing and encrypt­ing of your email is not easy, but this does make help a great deal.

Record­ing

  • If you are a client of mine, you’ve prob­a­bly received per­son­al screen­casts from me. I use Cam­ta­sia for Mac to make these videos.

Com­put­er

  • I’m cur­rent­ly using a Mac Mini with Apple Silicon.
  • I have the LG Ultra­fine 5K exter­nal mon­i­tor and an inex­pen­sive Dell 4K mon­i­tor. The Mac mini only sup­ports one Thun­der­bolt mon­i­tor and anoth­er HDMI monitor.
