Greetings everyone. Today I decided to share software programs and websites I use daily.
Websites and services (cross-platform)
ProtonMail — This is where my main mail domain is hosted, ProtonMail provides a solid and fast email experience with servers that aren't blocked anywhere significant.
Kagi — It is a new search engine that is currently in beta access and that aims to be private but also provide high-quality results. I have been beta-testing it for now some time and so good so far. At some point, I may do a special article on it when it releases.
GitHub — Of course, the largest website to collaborate on code, most of my work is hosted there.
Trello — The kanban board hosted by Atlassian, nothing much to say about it, only that it's really practical when working with a team to organize ideas and tasks.
Mastodon — This is my only real social network, where I sometimes post. Nothing much to say about it, it's microblogging.
KeyCloak — The solution I used to provide SSO across all my personal services.
Apex Ping — What I use monitor my apps and servers.
As you may know, the laptop I use (mostly for work) is a 2020 MacBook Pro M1.
CleanShot X — This program is a fancy version of ShareX on Windows, it takes screenshots but also allows you to blur, put arrows and generally modify the images before using them.
macOS 12 — This is the beta version of the next release of Apple's operating system. Nothing much to say about it.
TablePlus — I use this software to manage databases, backup them, restore them and most generally, execute actions on those.
Orion — It is the web browser made by the people at Kagi, based on WebKit, but with a twist: you can install Firefox and Chrome add-ons. As a (nice) bonus, it has no telemetry. This piece of software is also in beta at the moment I am writing this blog.
iTerm2 — Basically the best terminal emulator for Mac.
Visual Studio Code — The editor I use for everyday stuff, from Python to TypeScript. A version without telemetry exists and is called VSCodium.
Insomnia — It is a program made to debug, test, and make request to REST APIs.
