Software, gadgets and things I use...
Here you can find a list of stuff I use to build software.
Pro, M1 Max, 16GB RAM (2020) ↗
I use an Apple 13” MacBook Pro. It's perfect and I never hear the fans, even under heavy loads!
Application launcher on steroid! It's super-fast and I love its extendability.
The best terminal I ever used! It uses AI to help you remember your most used commands and it has more gems!
My first choice for database management.
Need to work with APIs? This tool is sooo good, just like a pie.
Last but not least, this is what I used to build this website.
Spoiler alert: it's only HTML and CSS, that's it!
I fell in love with this project as soon as I saw it! The web is full of fancy websites with lots of custom fonts, images, animations and so on. But I'm a radical thinker and I wanted a minimal website for myself. That translates into a snappier page load and less bandwidth used. This is a win-win for the final user and for the planet!
I usually use AWS serverless (Laravel Vapor) for my Laravel side projects. But, since this website is based on static pages, Netlify is what I went for in this case.
I care about privacy and Fathom analytics helps me collect only the metrics I need without installing any cookie!
Carbon Calculator ↗
We (developers) are responsible for the impact websites have on our planet. With mindful choices we can produce more sustainable products. Do we need images? Do we need tons of third-party scripts? Do we need custom fonts? Those are just a bunch of questions we can ask ourselves while we build a website. I personally prefer a minimalistic approach!
