Code Editor + Terminal

1984

I have been using Visual Studio Code as my code editor for over a four years now. I recently switched to the insiders build since it always has some newer features like settings sync and github integrations.

❤️ Probably my favorite electron app by far.

My favorite color themes are 1984, Moonlight, and Night Owl.

My favorite fonts are hasklig and recursive variable font.

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.

Monitor

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.

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 new setup helps me stay focused on the task at hand and avoid distractions.
