Code Editor + Terminal
I have been using Visual Studio Code as my code editor for many years now. Love the settings sync, github integrations, and extensions ecosystem.
❤️ Probably my favorite electron app by far.
Here are my vscode settings repo. It was inspired by Anthony Fu’s awesome work.
My favorite color themes are 1984, Moonlight, and Night Owl.
My favorite fonts are hasklig and recursive variable font.
- recursive examples
For my terminal, I have stuck with iTerm2 when on mac. It is reliable, customizable, and just works. I go fullscreen with a slight transparency. I also use oh-my-zshell, pure-prompt, with the facebook theme.

I am now on #teamcrispy with my LG 27UK850-W 27” 4K UHD IPS Monitor. 4K is a dream and text and images look really sharp. I am happy to report less eye strain on this monitor as an added bonus.
Inspiration for the setup is from A Single Monitor Manifesto by Cory House. It made a lot sense to me and am happy with the new setup. This setup helps me stay focused on the task at hand and avoid distractions.
